Research shows that companies spend less than 10% of their yearly budgets on upskilling staff. So, while technology plays an increasingly important role in business, the uptake of Azure by partners and customers as their preferred cloud product is outrunning the number of Azure trained IT professionals. This creates a clear opportunity for tech professionals to upskill on a broad range of role-based certifications that will likely be required for their careers and development.
To help, we are offering free Azure certification courses for AWS Certified Professionals through our training partners Auldhouse and ACE starting in mid-March. Each course will deliver a tailored curriculum that will help developers and architects, or those who are certified with other cloud providers, transition their skills and better understand an Azure environment. The courses are facilitated by specialised tutors who understand the offerings of different cloud providers, meaning they can help participants update their skills.
The aim of the free training is simple – we’re trying to develop a digital skills pipeline that provides immediate support to meet current industry needs. But, at the same time, we think we’ll be setting New Zealand’s tech industry up for success in the future too.
Why become Azure certified?
Azure certifications are well recognised within the industry and will put professionals in a good position to make the most of current opportunities. Whether that is being ready and able to help with major migration projects as we complete the datacenter region, building applications in the cloud for some of New Zealand’s most well-known businesses, working across our extensive partner network, or cutting your teeth in a small tech start-up or independent software vendor to create the next big thing.
There are other benefits of being Azure certified too, like giving IT pros the ability to command a higher salary and be in greater demand as a job candidate.
Now is the time for you to upskill and be ready for opportunities we know the market is crying out for. View the courses below and sign up for a free Microsoft Azure certification course today.
