MCSA – Cloud Platform

October 31, 2017

By Jordan Schwartz

Exciting news for IT pros who want to become cloud architects!

At Ignite last month, Microsoft announced plans to develop three new certification exams for their cloud platform, Azure. These new exams will provide tech pros more opportunities to upskill as you progress in your cloud career and grow your Azure expertise.

So, what does that mean for you?

While the new exams won’t be out for a while, you don’t have to wait to work on your MCSA Cloud Platform certification. A great way to get started is by taking advantage of the free cloud platform training that we provide free to all current TEKsystems consultants. You can access these courses, as well as information about your current assignment and all TEKsystems job opportunities (over 3X what we post publicly), through your Community profile. If you haven't accessed the portal yet and need help, ask your recruiter to re-send your unique login.

Besides helping you get a foot in the door with top employers, TEKsystems can help you become certified. We offer free online classes, including certification-track classes to help you prepare for the MCSA Cloud Platform exams and related credentials.
