Overview

On this accelerated Microsoft Azure Architect Design course, you’ll learn how to advise stakeholders and build secure, scalable and reliable solutions to meet business demands.

In just 2 days, you’ll discover how to manage security and identity within the context of Azure, which will support your solutions. You’ll also build knowledge on data streaming and long-term data storage. As you train at twice the speed, you’ll learn how to:

  • Design monitoring
  • Design identity and security
  • Design data storage
  • Design business continuity
  • Design infrastructure

At the end of your course, you'll sit Exam AZ-304: Microsoft Azure Architect Design (currently in beta) and achieve your Microsoft Azure Architect Design certification.

Through Firebrand's Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you'll get access to Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOCs) and learn from certified instructors, as Firebrand are a Microsoft Gold Partner for Learning

Next step: Microsoft Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification

Once you achieve your Microsoft Azure Architect Design certification, you'll be halfway towards becoming a Microsoft Azure Solutions Architect Expert.

Both exam AZ-304 and exam AZ-303: Microsoft Azure Architect Technologies are prerequisites for the Microsoft Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification.

After you pass both exams, you will automatically receive the Microsoft Certified: Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification.

Alternatively, you can take the combined course and pass both exams in just 6 days.

"Course was very good, I liked the analogies given to explain complex networking areas it really helped. The instructor was very good at bringing information to a level everyone could understand and then further on that. "
Ewan jamieson, Mr. (17/2/2020 (Monday) to 22/2/2020 (Saturday))

"Knowledgeable, well spoken and relatable instructor. The instructor explained difficult concepts clearly and provided good examples to help us understand the material. He also discussed real-world examples to help solidify how the concepts are applied in the field. There were a few technical issues with the remote learning and remote labs, but overall a great experience, especially so when considering the current situation with COVID-19."
JE, Mitchells & Butlers. (4/5/2020 (Monday) to 7/5/2020 (Thursday))

"I would highly recommend taking up a course with Firebrand because the way the course is delivered is very helpful and useful for someone who either has no knowledge or some knowledge. The instructors do everything they can to ensure everyone is learning and is always on hand to help anyone who is struggling with anything. Everyone on the course is also very helpful and in the same position as they want to learn to. So there is not just the instructor but the class as a whole to assist. The facility is very nice and I will definitely be coming back for any future courses I attend. "
