What is Aligned Courseware?

Based on customer feedback and demand from Training Service Providers (Learning Partners) and Microsoft Certified Trainers (MCTs) in regards to the content on Microsoft Learn not meeting the demands of students in the classroom, Specialist Courseware made the commitment to author courseware that aligned directly to the Microsoft Official Courses.

The content is aligned almost identically with official courses, with some exceptions.  Where we find deficiencies in the official courses based on the exam requirements, we may add or enhance content.  Where PPT slides lack detail, these have been amended to create a rich and more engaging experience for the students.

Not only this, we have a continued commitment to keep these courses up to date on a much regular cadence than that of WWL.


This course will provide foundational level knowledge on cloud concepts; core Azure services; and Azure management and governance features and tools.



This course is suitable for IT personnel who are just beginning to work with Azure. This audience wants to learn about our offerings and get hands-on experience with the product. This course primarily uses the Azure portal and command line interface to create resources and does not require scripting skills. Students in this course will gain confidence to take other role-based courses and certifications, such as Azure Administrator. This course combines lecture and demonstrations. This course will also help prepare someone for the AZ-900 exam.
