Microsoft Azure enables organizations around the world to become more digitally connected, and networking is transforming the way these organizations work. When companies shift to the cloud, networking as a service unlocks new benefits for customers in the areas of scale, speed, elastic resources, and managed oversight. In the cloud landscape, the critical role of the network engineer continues to evolve as these professionals tackle complex tasks, from migrating workloads to the cloud and managing hybrid connectivity to empowering remote workers and supporting strategic scenarios that enable digital transformation.

 

The Azure Network Engineer Associate certification and beta exam

We’re happy to announce today that we’re expanding our Azure training and certification portfolio to include the Azure Network Engineer Associate certification. This new certification can help networking professionals to shine a light on their critical skills. You can use this globally recognized Microsoft Certification to validate your skills and abilities and to stay competitive.

 

Candidates for the Azure Network Engineer Associate certification need to have subject matter expertise in recommending, planning, implementing, and maintaining Azure networking solutions, including hybrid networking, connectivity, routing, security, and private access to Azure services. And they need expert Azure administration skills. Professionals in this role deploy networking solutions by using the Azure portal and other methods, including PowerShell, Azure CLI, and Azure Resource Manager templates (ARM templates).

 

Azure network engineers work with solution architects, cloud administrators, security engineers, application developers, and DevOps engineers to deliver Azure solutions.

 

The exam for this certification, Exam AZ-700: Designing and Implementing Microsoft Azure Networking Solutions (beta), will be available in late July. If you’re a skilled Azure network engineer, we encourage you to participate in the beta—stay tuned for the announcement.

 

Start preparing now for the upcoming beta exam

Even though Exam AZ-700 (beta) will be released in July 2021, you can start preparing for it now:

 

Set your sights on the future

Are you ready to let the world know that you have the Azure networking experience and skills that enable you to plan, implement, and maintain your company’s Azure networking solutions? Get started learning about the Azure Network Engineer Associate certification today, and prepare to take your career to the next level.

Interesting. Is there a cert pathway (ex. AZ-900 - AZ-104 - AZ-700) out yet? I've noticed that AZ-700 is also an associate exam.
