This course is an elective for the Microsoft MCSE: Data Management and Analytics

The Data Platform – Designing and Implementing Cloud Data Platform Solutions course is for those looking to improve and validate their knowledge and skills designing and implementing Microsoft data platform solutions. If you are a database professional looking to enhance your SQL Server skills with hybrid solutions and cloud solution architecture using the Microsoft Data Platform, this course is ideal.

Passing exam 70-473 previously resulted in achieving Microsoft Specialist: Designing and Implementing Cloud Data Platform Solutions certification.

Microsoft retired the Specialist credential on 31 March, 2017. The exams remain available and where applicable will count towards the relevant existing MCSA, MCSE or MCSD certification.

Seven reasons why you should sit your Cloud Data Platform Solutions course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be Cloud Data Platform Solutions certified in just 2 days. With us, you’ll be Cloud Data Platform Solutions trained in record time
  2. Our Cloud Data Platform Solutions course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass Cloud Data Platform Solutions first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  4. You’ll learn more Cloud Data Platform Solutions. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  5. You’ll learn Cloud Data Platform Solutions faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  6. You’ll be studying Cloud Data Platform Solutions with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 122,589 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study Cloud Data Platform Solutions courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging

Benefits

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
