This Microsoft Certified Expert - Azure DevOps course is a 6-day certification boot camp that focuses on actual job task for designing and building cloud solutions for applications and services. Microsoft also requires students to have achieved an MCA Azure Certification to earn the MCE. We have combo boot camps which include both the MCA and this MCE.

Our training model blends knowledge and certification prep into one solution. Interact face-to-face with Microsoft Certified Trainers (MCT) either at our Florida Training Center - OR, attend the same instructor-led LIVE camp ONLINE! Note: additional hours required each evening for self-study of materials and practice exams in preparation for exams. All boot camps will also include:

  • Microsoft Official Courseware (dMOC) and materials (practice exams/test simulators)
  • Microsoft Study Labs and Simulations
  • (1) Official Exam voucher - plus (1) retake voucher (per exam if needed)

AZ-400 Designing and Implementing Microsoft DevOps Solutions

While attending this course, students will have the option of taking the one (1) exam (AZ-400) to achieve the Microsoft Certified Azure DevOps Engineer Expert certification. This hands on, instructor led live camp teaches the knowledge to designing and building cloud solutions for applications and services along with the knowledge needed for the certification exams (can be administered while attending "live" at the camp).
