At Coding Dojo, we stay laser-focused on our students’ and alumni’s success. Whether it’s the continual updates to our curriculum, ongoing improvements to our Learn Platform, or other enhancements, the goal always remains the same: to provide the best possible learning experience for our students.
That’s why we’re excited to announce that we’re working with Microsoft to proliferate Microsoft Azure certifications in the workforce. This collaboration will increase the amount of job-ready Microsoft Azure developers by integrating Microsoft Learn tracks into the Coding Dojo curriculum, as well as offering discounted Microsoft Azure certification exams to all Coding Dojo students and alumni.
With the collaboration, all Coding Dojo students will learn the basics of Microsoft Azure and deploy projects built during the program on it. Upon graduating, Coding Dojo alumni can participate in workshops focusing on three Microsoft Azure certifications: Azure Fundamentals, Azure AI Fundamentals, and Azure Data Fundamentals. After the workshops, alumni can take each Microsoft Azure certification exam at 50% off the original prices.
And there’s no better time to get certified! According to a recent report by Microsoft and their research partners:
- Employer demand for Azure skills has grown 58% year-over-year since 2017, compared to cloud skills in general (29%) and AWS (14%).
- Certified IT professionals get promoted more than 50% faster than non-certified IT professionals.
- 67% of tech professionals say they had greater self-confidence in their abilities to perform in their jobs.
- 41% reported increased job satisfaction
- 35% saw a salary or wage increase after achieving certification.
Workshops are held each month, typically near the end of the month. If you are a Coding Dojo alumni who is interested in signing up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you the registration form.
The workshops and discounted exam vouchers are only available to Coding Dojo alumni.
