Microsoft has just announced the addition of their first cloud networking focused certificate Azure Network Engineer Associate and I have never been more excited about the announcement of a new certification.
The exam for this certification is Designing and Implementing Microsoft Azure Networking Solutions AZ-700 which is expected to be available at end of July.
While Microsoft is quite late to the party, it’s good that it’s finally here. AWS led the pack in 2016 when they announced the Advanced Networking Speciality which is so far the hardest cloud exam I have ever done. Google’s GCP followed suit with the release of Professional Cloud Network Engineer in 2019.
You can find the Skills outline here and it seems comprehensive.
I’m planning to sign up for the beta exam and will share my experience here if I’m able to get in as I expect this to be a very popular exam.
You can also look forward to some posts about specific topics that will help you if you are looking at getting this certificate or just looking to improve your cloud networking knowledge.
