I registered for Jun 19 class but I haven't got any class joining instruction email. Which email do they send it to? (Senica email or backup email)

Will be still eligible for the exam and the Azure ac?

Took the 'workshop' in late April, just wrote the exam today. Finished in 15 mins with 800~. Total breeze. I watched the two workshop videos (not helpful), read the book once (mildly helpful), and watched the John Savill videos (decently helpful and inspiring, but far from comprehensive), and then watched one 2 hour video on youtube that was extremely helpful, and then just went through the entire Examtopics questions once. That's all. I was expecting to fail this exam hard, because I only studied for like 2-3 days this week, slept for a total of 2 hours yesterday, had full-time classes on Friday morning-afternoon, followed by an 8 hour night shift at work which ended just 2 hours before the exam started. I got home from work with some 60 examtopics questions still unfinished, and quickly worked on those. Finished them just 30 minutes before exam start time, and was like 'well, whatever happens, happens.'

Hardly a great score, but glad I did it and got through it under the circumstances.

This is the video I used and found most helpful, though I didn't have time to do his 120 question practice test because I was running out of time and decided to prioritize examtopics practice test first. The questions on the exam were basically similar to the examtopics ones, very similar format, but many I did not see in the examtopics despite going through it all.

Thanks to the OP. I took the course on June 2-3 and passed the exam on June 17 with 900. I would say the course was somewhat helpful but the other practice tests mentioned by previous posters really helped in passing the exam.

I also just passed the exam and watched this video right before it; it was very helpful! I also watched another series of videos which was much more helpful than the class.

I don't think they're scheduling exams after June, but not totally sure about this.

passed mine today, I have to admit the skillpilot book is far from being comprehensive. Anyway, if I target myself as an administrator, is AZ104 the next course to take?
Any advice is appreciated!

seems like this thing is dead. which is disappointing after just one entry level course. they made it sound like it was a program they were investing in folks. but quite honestly there was no need to launch an entire program with fanfare around one course.

was really hoping they would expand this to the other MS certs as well.

It's not over. Microsoft paired up with a bunch of institutions to offer all 3 Azure certificates: AI, DP, and AZ. Seneca offered AZ, UofC is giving AI, and Microsoft Training days is offering all 3. They're free certs and decent, but neither of them will land you a job, by themselves.

Passed my exam yesterday - thanks OP.

Used Skillpilot to study after the exam and used Whizlabs AZ900 for prep. I'd say the exam had its tricky parts, but given the compressed schedule - it was achievable.

source?

or did you gather all that by randomly finding the institutions that offered the courses? cuz I looked at other institutions listed in the original press release and none of the ones in ontario had anything aside from Seneca.

I don't know. I've never taken a Microsoft Training Days course before.

virtual training days don't give you a free exam voucher like seneca did. and never mind the recorded replay feel.
i'm assume U of C offers exam vouchers, else i'm not interested either.
and your suggestion of google search doesn't actually answer my question.

Virtual Days doesn't offer you an exam voucher?

Are you sure about this?
