Trainer Preparation Guide: AZ-103T00A 1 Purpose This document is for Microsoft Certified Trainers preparing to teach the AZ-103 Microsoft Azure Administrator course. This course is designed for students who are planning to take the associated certification exam, or students who are performing Azure administrator tasks in their day-to-day job. AZ-103 Certification Exam Since launching the role-based certification program in September 2018, we have received a tremendous amount of feedback about the requirements to earn our certifications. Based on this feedback it was announced that starting on May 1, 2019, you will only need to pass one exam — AZ-103: Microsoft Azure Administrator — to earn the Azure Administrator certification. This new exam replaces AZ-100, Microsoft Azure Infrastructure and Deployment, and AZ-101, Microsoft Azure Integration and Security, with most of the new exam coming from AZ-100. For more information, read this blog announcement on the new AZ-103 Certification Exam. Certification exams measure your ability to accomplish certain technical tasks for a job role. The study areas are based on the Job Task Analysis that was conducted for the role in March 2018, and then revalidated based on the new exam announcement. Each study area has a percentage indicating the relative weight of the area on the exam. The higher the percentage, the more questions you are likely to see in that area. Study Area Percentage Manage Azure subscriptions and resources 15-20% Implement and manage storage 15-20% Deploy and manage virtual machines 15-20% Configure and manage virtual networks 30-35% Manage identities 15-20% For more information, on the skills measured in the exam, please visit the AZ-103 Microsoft Azure Administrator certification page.

This role requires communicating and coordinating with vendors.
