Why Microsoft training courses are in demand

Did you know that the (ISC)2 Cybersecurity Workforce Study 2020 found that 49% of employers require their staff to have Microsoft qualifications?

Meanwhile, 40% of existing cyber security professionals plan to develop their Cloud security skills in the next two years. A significant part of that will involve Microsoft Azure, the Cloud computing service that provides software-, platform- and infrastructure-as-a-service.

IT Governance is helping organisations and individuals gain the necessary qualifications with our Microsoft Security training pathways.

As an official Microsoft partner, we offer everything you need to achieve a globally recognised Microsoft certification in less than a week.

In this blog, we look at the Microsoft 365 Pathway and Azure Pathway, explaining which one might be right for you and how you can advance through it.

Microsoft 365 Pathway 

The Microsoft 365 Pathway helps you develop your career as a Microsoft 365 identity, mobility or security specialist. 

It’s ideal for those looking to deploy and secure Microsoft 365 Cloud services in their organisation, and those who plan a specialised career as a Microsoft 365 administrator or security professional. 

Potential job roles include IT support executive, IT support manager, system administrator and Microsoft 365 security administrator. 

The pathway begins with the Microsoft 365 Fundamentals MS-900 Training Course, which provides foundational knowledge of the features and benefits of adopting Cloud services and the Microsoft SaaS Cloud model. 

Once you’ve passed this course, you can advance to the Microsoft 365 Identity and Service MS-100, and Microsoft 365 Mobility and Security MS-101 training courses. 

The final training course in the pathway is the flagship Microsoft 365 Security Administrator MS-500 Training Course. Recognised by employers worldwide, this programme will teach you how to plan and implement the strategies required to proactively secure Microsoft 365 enterprise and hybrid environments. 

Azure Pathway 

Microsoft Azure is the Cloud platform for delivering Microsoft Office 365 client services, which include Outlook, OneDrive, SharePoint, Microsoft Teams and the Office applications. 

This pathway is ideal for IT professionals looking to configure, deploy and secure Microsoft Azure services in their organisation. It’s also suitable for those who plan to develop a specialised career as a Microsoft Azure administrator or security engineer. 

Potential job roles include IT support executive, IT support manager, system administrator, Azure administrator, security operations analyst, and identity and access admin manager. 

The pathway begins with the Microsoft Azure Fundamentals AZ-900 Training Course which delivers a foundational knowledge of Microsoft Azure and the Microsoft Certified: Azure Fundamentals (AZ-900) qualification. 

You can build on this qualification with the Microsoft Azure Administrator AZ-104 training course before taking the career-defining Microsoft Azure Security Engineer AZ-500
