    Yes. AZ-204 certification is ideal for individuals who are considering a career as an Azure Administrator. By completing this certification you are working towards becoming an expert in implementing, managing, and monitoring an organization’s Microsoft Azure environment.

    It is an industry recognized certification that validates your level of skills and knowledge in this field, and ensures prospective employers are aware of this when you apply for vacancies.

    If you sign up with SkillUp Online, our Microsoft Certified Trainers (MCTs) will walk you through all the modules as per Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC).

    Starting June 2021, role-based and specialty certificates will expire after one year — not two. Certificates earned before June 2021 will stay valid for two years from the date earned and are eligible for the new renewal process.

    Microsoft does retire certifications from time, however, and you may also find exam numbers evolve when Microsoft changes the curriculum substantially for the certification.

    The renewal window begins six months before your certificate expires. During this pre-expiry window, you can take a free online assessment at Microsoft Learn and get the certificate extended by one additional year from the current expiration date.
