Microsoft AZ-301 Certification: Azure Architect Design

Be able to advise customers and translate business requirements into secure, scalable, and reliable solutions in the Azure platform!

The AZ-301 exam is targeted at experienced IT experts and covers a variety of subjects and services. In order to understand core architect technologies, Skylines Academy will lead you through a series of sections, modules, and demos to prepare you for taking, and ultimately passing, the Microsoft Azure AZ-301 exam. The exam builds upon many of the subjects covered in AZ-300 which are reviewed but with a new focus on DESIGN choices that you are expected to know.

This course curriculum is as follows:

  • Determine Workload Requirements
  • Design Identity Management
  • Design a Data Solution
  • Establish Business Continuity
  • Design Deployment and Migrations
  • Design an Infrastructure Strategy
  • Example Designs

Lectures will educate you on the fundamental terms and principles of the Azure platform and demos will enable you with a hands-on experience using scenarios to empower you in the real world.

This course will be continually updated with additional modules based on feedback from our students. Stay tuned as we will be posting updates in the coming months including study guides, lab guides, and more!
