  • They stopped giving vouchers if I am not mistaken.

  • You can use these vouchers for other Azure exams(Azure Solution Architect etc.).

    Are you sure about that? Pretty sure the vouchers are specific for AZ-900 only?
    It even says in the link:
    After completing this free training, you’ll be eligible to take the Microsoft Azure Fundamentals certification exam at no cost

  • Not sure MS certification is worth the time, personally. Nobody has ever been interested in my MCPD in job interviews.

    • Guess it depends on what they're looking for. Sometimes being heavily certified can scare them off, they might think you're only filling it between contract gigs. Or often they don't care about paper as long as you can demonstrate past experience.

    • I would argue it's absolutely worth the time, if you have had a career in IT.

      Looks favourably on your resume and shows you are actually certified in the technology.

      • Certifications would be the last thing that would impress me on a CV.
        Anyone can do them.

        • I agree. I've never taken much notice of them when hiring developers. It's pretty easy to figure out if people know what they are taking about when you talk to them and having a certification doesn't mean they can actually do they job, it just means they can study for a test.

    • So many factors to getting a job - first impressions, resume, experience, activity on proffessional mediums (LIN), attitude during your interview etc. are some of them if not all.
      I am always on the lookout for positive traits when getting someone to work for me …it's a hard search…but you could be next :)

      In my previous role and current role, having MS cloud certs were essential. The role was called Microsoft 365 Cloud Engineer, consisted of supporting clients and mainly transitioning them from on prem to 365. Have seen quite a few jobs posted with similar criteria. My company (when I hire again) will look very favourably on candiates with MS 365 certs, as I've had migrations get messed up by people thinking they know what they are doing and royally screwing everyone over.

      • Case in point! Well done!

      • Unfortunately though, a 365 cert doesn't mean you're able to do it either. I've met quite a few IT staff who were certified up to the eyeballs but were clueless.

        • Yeah, that's really my point. Through my personal experience of studying for and passing my MCPD, it was obvious that all you need to do to pass MS certs is to remember the answers to the questions. They don't test your actual understanding. I would never base hiring someone on it and none of the interviewers for the roles I have had in the past 10+ years since I got it have been remotely interested in it. The only thing it says to me is that the applicant was dedicated enough to put the time in to do it.

          • @grumpybum: For me its one less headache if they get hired so they count towards our Microsoft Partner quota and we don't have to waste time during the initial months getting to know what 365 is etc. Wasn't saying it was the be all and end all of hiring, we hire for personality and fit into the team, but if they happen to fit in well and have 365 certs + experience, its a good step.

            No cert really tests your understanding, I have done the HP tech exams that are proctured and its more remember product lines than actual useful info, CCNA/CCNP does give some more indepth knowledge but nothing can compete with real world experience, but the certs have been a good base indicator so far.

          • @grumpybum: Yes exactly. The only thing it shows me is that there is an interest (in either developing themselves or their career).
            It's right down the bottom of the list in terms of things I look for.

  • Thanks OP!

    Going to get some friends to complete this too!

  • Do we have to go through the complete training for both days to get the voucher or is there a workaround to get the voucher ?

  • Signed up for 15th, let's see if the voucher comes through.

  • Are there any other free certifications?

  • Thanks, registered.

  • I don't quite get it. Is it online training or I have to go to
    1 Epping Road
    North Ryde, NSW 2113
    Australia
    ?

  • Thanks!

  • How is the training delivered? Teams, Zoom, summat else?

    • You need to register and they will send you a link a few hours before the session starts. It's a proprietary webinar software that they use.

  • It's online training. I did it the last time this was posted. It'll be a lecture/video seminar with two Microsoft trainers. Not Zoom, but their own video platform/UI/link.

    You can type questions in the chat box, but won't have to do activities or interact. You must attend the seminar in order to get the free exam.

  • Is the course content enough to pass the exams or is further study required?

  • to people who interested studiyng azure exams - there is a FB group running by Scott Duffy, udemy instructor who built quite few azure exam courses - there are lot of info in there and you can ask any questions related to azure ( and not only azure ) exams

  • If I applied and linked the voucher by entering email on a wrong exam. Can we unlink it and fix it?

  • Instructions received after the training appear to indicate that it's only for 900 unless you can sign up for any test and just enter your email address that you did the course with. Data doesn't look like it's been received by MS, so won't be able to confirm until the end of the week (5 business days)

  • had issues with the second day and kept dropping out - last time I was unable to reconnect and when I finally did, the session had ended. Can't see any subsequent emails with information on how to claim the free exam vouchers either, is it the same for anyone else? Thanks

  • I'm not able to use the email address for another exam (AZ-204). Anybody else have the same issues?

  • Anyone who attended the meeting on 3rd / 4th are getting a successful validation on the "Exam Discounts" page ?

  • i joined 9/10 Sep, no luck yet for the free exam

  • For any of those that previously undertook the virtual training session and only that (without any or very small amount of exposure to Azure), then took the exam based on knowledge and understanding of what you received in the virtual training session… Did you actually pass the exam?

    I was in the virtual training session conducted in June's deal where it actually gave an exam voucher code (not what they're giving in this deal), and I asked the resources during the training session if I can just take the exam and possibly pass based on the knowledge and understanding I received through only the session, and they said "yes generally one can". I failed that exam. The structure of the exam goes into a lot more than just what was provided in the virtual training session, and after the exam going through some of the stuff I remembered in the exam, much of the stuff relies on good memory of the apps, products and services within Azure, which isn't fully covered in the training session. Rather you need some exposure to the Azure portal itself.

    Interested to know if anyone passed the exam without any other exposure to Azure and only from the session, and if I'm just a dumb ass :(

    • of cause you won't, you need read more, as always. only thing here is the free Exam. otherwise, who cares the virtual training session, as it is only for 4.5 hours? you can't expecting to pass the exam for only watch the training in 4.5 hours, right?

      • Thanks you made me feel a bit better about it all now!

        Although, I now feel a little silly thinking one can pass purely on the virtual training session 🤦🏻‍♂️

        • I know this is not the right way, but have anyone heard of the dumps? I have heard that there are quite a few dumps that help you in preparation of the exam and the questions are usually from the dumps.

  • i got the free exam in my account now, and scheduled the exam successful.

  • Still haven't got free exam voucher linked to my email address for the sep 15 course
