The Microsoft Certified: Azure Fundamentals certification is an official recognition of your skills in using Azure services. It is suitable for both beginners and experienced professionals and can help you start or expand your career in the field of cloud technology. To be certified, you must demonstrate your knowledge of the basic concepts of Azure and how its services are provided.
This certification allows you to demonstrate your knowledge of cloud computing concepts, models, and services, such as public, private, and hybrid clouds, as well as IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service), and SaaS (Software as a Service). It also allows you to demonstrate your expertise in security, privacy, compliance, and trust in Azure.
It is recommended to have a good understanding of network concepts, storage, computing, application support, and application development before preparing for this certification. You can use your Azure Fundamentals certification to strengthen your foundational knowledge before taking other Azure role-based or specialized certifications, but it is not a prerequisite for any of them.
