Lab Environment:

  • All lab steps for this course are provided at the end of the course and may be viewed at any time.
  • The lab environment is available to you for five (5) consecutive days. You decide when to start the lab environment within the thirty (30) day period of your MOC On-Demand access. As lab work is performed directly in Office 365 and not on virtual machines, IP addresses need to be reserved and utilized throughout the duration of the lab work, which needs to be built up in each module. As there is a limitation on how many can be reserved at any given period, the duration of the lab instance is restricted to five (5) days. To start your lab experience, provision an Office 365 tenant to use to complete the labs within the course. When you begin the first lab, you will receive a NOTIFICATION message informing you that the five (5) days will start now. You can either confirm YES if you want to start or click cancel and you can start the lab environment at another time.
  • You will have access to all MOC On demand content including lab steps, videos, interactions, knowledge checks and assessments for the entire thirty (30) days of the course.
