6 month access to custom, scenario-based Labs

The hands-on Azure AD training labs for this course were custom built so you can implement and manage Azure AD using practical, real-world scenarios. You’ll have long-term access to the labs – and they are updated quarterly, and have no dependencies on existing infrastructure or tools. You’ll simply need your own Microsoft Azure AD account to access and repeat the labs as often as you like.
