If you are interested in getting started with Cloud technologies, or perhaps you’ve been working with, let’s say Azure for a while but you haven’t done any certifications yet, have a look at these free foundation courses. I’ve included URL’s to the free (official) training materials, an additional training resource, which is pretty extensive, and all three Exam codes to with it, so you can start planning your exam as soon as you feel you’re ready to go.
The title mentions ‘almost’ free, that’s because there is a fee associated with the exams, the rest is free of charge. A special thanks to @vladcatrinescu for putting together an extensive list of training materials for both Microsoft (Azure and 365) exams.
