How to get Microsoft Certifications AZ-900 and SC-900 at no cost !


You might have great plans 2022 already but check this opportunity from Microsoft to get their foundation certifications at no cost. Microsoft Azure is one of the top cloud service providers (CSP) and Azure has a decent share in the cloud market. 

AZ-900: Microsoft Azure Fundamentals

This is the fundamental exam to prove your knowledge and skill in Azure cloud concepts, services, security etc. This is not a prerequisite exam for any other speciality certifications but it is recommended to attend this as an introduction and to understand the key concepts.

Exam SC-900: Microsoft Security, Compliance, and Identity Fundamentals

This exam is for engineers who focus on cloud security, compliance and identity (SCI) and other security related tracks. It is recommended that candidates should learn Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365 fundamentals and security before attending this exam.

How to get those certifications at no cost ?

It is simple, Microsoft is arranging Virtual Training Day for fundamentals, security and many other topics. You need to register for a training session (there are multiple sessions) suitable for your schedule and attend the training. 

After completing these training, you’ll be eligible to take the respective certification exams at no cost.

How to prepare for the exam ?

You can attend any courses (online or instructor-led) or video courses as per your schedule and method of learning. Microsoft is providing free online learning courses to prepare for both certification exams (and other exams). Check learning path in the certification page for AZ-900 and SC-900 and you will find both online and instructor-led options.

Bonus resources

I personally recommend below video courses from Susanth Sutheesh which are available on youtube for free. 

You can also use any other courses from Udemy, Coursera or Pluralsight if you have any free (or paid) subscription or purchases.
