Microsoft 365 and Azure Learning and Certification Black Friday Offers
This year has definitely been an unusual one in so many ways, however something that I have seen throughout my network is that a lot of people used this year to move forward, learn new skills, and even get a Microsoft Certification! In this blog post, I want to share the top offers for different learning providers, whether you want to get certified or simply up your skills, you cannot go wrong with the options in here!
As a Pluralsight author, I might be a bit biased when I say it, but I think that for the price, there is no better value than a Pluralsight subscription. With over 8,000 courses in the library and more coming out each day, you will be able to keep busy for a full year and never run out of content to watch. Pluralsight has a partnership with Microsoft Azure for always creating new content, and they also have a ton of Microsoft 365 content, from beginner (MS-900) to advanced certifications such as the MS-700 and MS-100/101 series, and let’s not forget the Power Platform! One of the awesome things about Pluralsight is that there is so much content that Is outside our technical specialization that can help push forward your career, for example, over 200 hours of content towards the Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification! During Black Friday, they have a 40% off bringing the annual subscription down to 179$ USD! The Premium Subscription (at 269$ USD) also gives you access to Certification Practice exams, Interactive Courses, and Projects!
Voitanos is an on-demand learning company created by longtime Microsoft MVP Andrew Connell. Unlike other libraries which have content about everything, Voitanos focuses on one single audience: The Microsoft 365 Developer! There are advantages to focusing on only one audience… they’re the best at it! If you want to become a Microsoft 365 Developer, or want to upgrade your skills from SharePoint Dev to the full Microsoft 365 Platform, there is no better way to do it than with Voitanos. During the Black Friday sale, they have a 30% off offer on the Mastering the SharePoint Framework Bundles (both Fundamentals and Ultimate) as well as 50$ off the brand new MS-600 (Microsoft 365 Developer) Certification Prep Course!
With over 130,000 online courses, Udemy is probably one of the biggest learning libraries in the world! Udemy is different than Pluralsight as you do not pay for a full library but rather for individual courses that you want. Prices vary from 10$ to over 50 , but during Black Friday, most courses that are usually 50+ are down to 9.99 USD (or 13.99 CAD) so it can be a great opportunity for you to stock up on courses that you want to learn on. Since you buy them once and have Lifetime access, you can learn on your own schedule!
I will be honest; I haven’t heard about Whizlabs either until earlier this year! I heard about them trough different Facebook groups, and what everyone was praising them for is their Azure Certification practice exams! Whizlabs has a lot of content outside of Microsoft, but if we focus on the Microsoft side of things, their focus is really Azure and they have nothing on Microsoft 365 and Power Platform. But, with their Black Friday special can you really say no to a under-10$ AZ-104 or AZ-900 practice test? Check out their practice exams and courses, and use code BLACKFRIDAY50 to save 50% off SiteWide or BLACKFRIDAY20 for 20% off subscriptions.
