Last Thursday, I blogged about Microsoft’s new Private Cloud certification, which represents the company’s first “real” cloud-oriented certification credential. Although the two exams that deal with cloud technology in the System Center 2012 environment will have to wait for that platform to be commercially released (Microsoft also announced the System Center 2012 release candidate on January 18 as well), the company is already offering a online Jump Start to help candidates prepare for this certification.
The first scheduled date for this free session is on February 21-22, 2012, from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm PST (UCT -08:00). Visit the registration page for more details, including an outline for this two-day course and capsule bios of the four instructors who will be teaching this two-day online class. If my experience is any indicator, this class will fill up quickly, so sign up soon if you’re interested. If it’s already too late by the time you read this, keep your eyes peeled for the future iterations that will surely follow soon.
