A superfast Azure AD training solution – private instructor-led training by Teams

IT pros from the technology arm of a US healthcare company needed urgent Azure (now Microsoft Entra) training, privately via Skype.

Azure changes almost daily, and trying to learn it using free online resources can be unreliable, time-consuming, and even potentially dangerous – what if what you’ve learned is out of date? It’s our business to know what’s been updated and to reflect those changes in our training, which is comprehensive, structured, and scenario-based.

Rick, Security Solutions Architect IDM, the leader of a team of IT professionals from the technology arm of a leading US healthcare company, knew his guys urgently needed Azure AD training. He says: “We’re in the middle of lots of cloudy stuff – transitioning to the cloud”. But Rick was unsure where to go to get the high-quality training he needed. So he approached Microsoft for advice, and they suggested our Azure AD – Implementing Secure Cloud Hybrid Identity (now Microsoft Entra ID) – Training Course.

Superfast response – yes we can!

Rick contacted Mark Forbes, our Business Development Manager for the US and Canada, for advice in very late January. Could we train his team privately? Yes! Could the training take place soon? Yes – next month OK? So last week – just 14 days after Rick first emailed Mark – Rick and 4 of his team began their Azure AD Training Course (now Microsoft Entra ID).

Private courses via Teams

To save time and money, Rick and his team chose to have their training ‘remotely’ – that is, live instructor-led training by Teams. Our expert instructor connects with each student using the internet to form a virtual classroom. So Rick and his team – 4 of whom learned from the desks at home in Minnesota and one from his home office in Texas – were taken through the lectures and lab exercises to get a joined-up understanding of how Azure AD can be the solution to Rick’s “cloudy stuff” problem.

Michael, Security Services Engineer, said:

“A brilliant class that I will be using in my daily job. I appreciate the insight and guidance that was given during the class.

Brett, IAM Security Architecture Analyst, said:

The course was very informative and clear. The instructor did a great job. I think it was very helpful for us as a team to all be on the same [Teams] call to work through various problems. It helped a lot with overall learning, especially being able to all hear the answers to the questions. I really did enjoy learning about how to set all of this up.

Our Azure AD (now Microsoft Entra ID) training course has really great labs, that use the real, live, current Microsoft environment a real AD syncing up with a Microsoft Entra ID, with DNS, routable email, and MFA working in the cloud and on-premises!

What’s it like learning by Teams? It’s just like being in the classroom! Find out what other students who have learned by Teams say.
