Virtual Class

In this one-day course, you practice deploying containers, container orchestration, and managing clusters on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). The skills validated include deploying, configuring, and scaling an Azure Kubernetes Service cluster. Also, deploying an Azure Container Registry instance and deploying an application into an Azure Kubernetes Service cluster.

Microsoft Applied Skills

Microsoft Applied Skills are scenario-based credentials that provide learners with validation of targeted skills. These credentials are an efficient and trusted way to identify and deepen proficiency in scenario-based skillsets. The interactive training and validation enable learners to demonstrate proficiency by completing real-world tasks.

Applied Skills can help students prepare for the workforce by providing them with real-world problem-solving experience and validation of their skills.
