QA is pleased to announce, in partnership with Microsoft, the launch of the latest Impact Academy: Microsoft Azure.

QA's Microsoft Impact Azure Academy

Today, where a world of information is constantly at our fingertips, we need to re-look at the traditional methods of accessing information and content. The Azure Impact Academy builds real-world capability, providing skills that can be used effectively in the workplace, whilst working towards role-based Microsoft certification which helps participants validate their skills.

With this in mind and in partnership with Microsoft, QA has launched the Impact Academy: Microsoft Azure. This online, immersive, coach-led learning programme is delivered through a series of cutting-edge digital technical challenges. Participants in this course can turn their knowledge into a useable, real-world skills.

The 12-week online programme includes bi-weekly technical challenges. These challenges are completed as part of a team with expert guidance from a Microsoft Azure accredited QA Coach. Participants will be able to undertake the challenges with their cohort at a time that is suitable to their needs. This enables them to deliver results on projects based on real-world scenarios. This interactive programme ensures active skills development in a risk-free environment.

Microsoft Learning & Readiness Senior Director, Geoffrey Hirsch, commented:

“We are excited to work with QA as they continue to evolve their business and help drive deeper Microsoft Azure skills. At Microsoft, our mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. It’s a powerful articulation of what we have always believed—that anyone, empowered with the right tools and skill set, can do anything. Bringing a mission this bold to life begins with valuing learning over knowing.”
