Three Months to Certified
Scheduled for July 29, 2021
Anyone in the IT space will know, because you would’ve been told this repeatedly over the years:
You’re responsible for your own training.
I’ve been in my current role since 2017. I interviewed for my current job at Rutgers when my twins were only 4 months old! The transition to being a family man kept me from skilling up for a few years.
Well now it’s time I start looking towards the future. No matter what we do as a systems admin, the Cloud is Coming.
I’ve dabbled with Azure, but the motivation to get certified is going to start with setting a date.
So I did: July 29th, 2021. Three months.
I’m going to use this space to document my own learning journey on my way to AZ-104 Certification.
Why Now? I have a Voucher that Will expire, of course!
I took part in March’s Cloud Skills Challenge from Microsoft. Completing the modules for AZ-104 on Microsoft Learn earned me a free exam voucher.
I have to schedule the exam within 30 days of receiving the voucher — and those 30 days are almost up!
This means I do have a little bit of a start on studying. However, I’ve barely touched Azure in the month of April, so I still have a lot of catching up to do!
