Azure DevOps Engineer Expert Boot Camp

Our Microsoft Azure DevOps Engineer Certification Boot Camp is a comprehensive review of Azure DevOps combined with our award-winning Azure AZ-400 exam preparation.

This expert-level DevOps certification validates your skills in designing a DevOps strategy, implementing DevOps development processes, continuous integration, and delivery. It also measures your abilities in implementing dependency management, application infrastructure, and continuous feedback.


On the first attempt, if you don’t pass your exam, get a second attempt for free. Includes the ability for up to one year to re-sit the course for free. Students who are not overwhelmed with the economic burden of having to pay for a second test are much more likely to pass the AZ-400 exam on the first attempt in our experience.

Azure DevOps Engineer Expert prerequisites

Students should have fundamental knowledge about Azure, version control, Agile software development, and core software development principles. It would be helpful to have experience in an organization that delivers software.

It is recommended that you have experience working in an IDE, as well as some knowledge of the Azure portal. However, students who may not have a technical background in these technologies, but who are curious about DevOps practices as a culture shift, should be able to follow the procedural and expository explanations of continuous integration regardless.

Who Should Attend

Students in this course are interested in implementing DevOps processes or in passing the DevOps Engineer Expert certification exam.

    Private Team Training Option

    This course can be delivered for groups of 5 or more and can be customized to meet the specific needs of your team. Fill out the form below and our Enterprise Solutions experts will contact you to discuss the best training solutions for your team.
