Please note - the course titles and outlines are based on preliminary information from Microsoft - Titles, content, requirements are subject to change. Additionally - Microsoft requires students to have achieved an MCA Azure certification to earn the MCE. We have combo boot camps which include both the MCA and this MCE.
The NEW Microsoft Certified Expert - Azure DevOps Training & Certification 6 Day Boot Camp focuses on actual job task for designing and building cloud solutions for applications and services.
The Microsoft Certified Azure DevOps boot camp is taught using Microsoft Official Courseware

Microsoft offers these additional Azure certifications
Microsoft Job Role-based Azure Certifications
Microsoft has aligned Azure certifications and training to job roles - focusing on Admin, Dev or Architect.
Each certification requires 2 exams and no certification has any prerequisite certification requirements.
Certification Camps has developed a comprehensive training / delivery format focused on learning beyond the standard book content (accessible to any Microsoft training provider). Our program incorporates interactive demonstrations and detailed real world explanations. When possible - additional content, videos, labs & demonstrations are provided to expand on advanced topics - providing additional insight and perspective. Certification Camps training is not the typical book & PowerPoint presentation found at any local training center.
As a Microsoft Certified Partner with Gold Learning Competency - we adhere to the strict guidelines, standards and requirements to use Microsoft's exclusive curriculum. More over - our standards go beyond the "minimum requirements" set forth by Microsoft Learning.
We leverage our partnership benefits of courseware customization to build end to end technology training solutions. Students gain practical skills which can be implemented immediately.
At most training centers - learning starts on the first day of class and ends on the last day. Our boot camp training program is designed to offer resources before, during and after the training.
CERTIFICATION CAMPS FACILITIES
CAMPUS - Certification Camps built a state of the art training center with spacious classrooms, no sound transference between rooms, large individual desk, Herman Miller Aeron chairs & great common areas.
CLASSROOM SERVERS - Students work on a dedicated Dell 8700 / 8900 with an Intel i7 (6th generation), 32GB memory with 512GB SSD drives.
CAMPUS INTERNET - The campus is connected with a 300Mbs Verizon Fios Business Connection which provides complete internet (including VPN) access for students.
COMMON AREA - Unlike any training facility ever - break room with Mame Arcade, high end "kitchen" with snacks, drinks (Starbucks Coffee, 100% juices, sodas, etc) and breathtaking terrace.
NEARBY AMENITIES - Many shops, restaurants and grocery options are available within walking distance. Additionally - the hotel provided scheduled shuttle services. Restaurants like Cheesecake Factory, California Pizza Kitchen, Panera Bread, Bone Fish Grill, Ruby Tuesday's, Five Guys, Chipotle, Quiznos, Chili's and over 20 additional choices in the immediate area.
