Virtual Class

This abbreviated one-day course teaches Azure administrators how to plan, deliver, and manage virtual desktop experiences and remote apps, for any device, on Azure.

Students will learn through a mix of condensed demonstrations deploying virtual desktop experiences on Azure Virtual Desktop and running in multi-session virtual environments.

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.


Students for this course are interested in delivering applications on Azure Virtual Desktop and optimising them to run in multi-session virtual environments.
