Microsoft Identity and Access Administrator (SC-300)


This course provides IT Identity and Access Professional, along with IT Security Professional, with the knowledge and skills needed to implement identity management solutions based on Microsoft Azure AD, and it connected identity technologies. This course includes identity content for Azure AD, enterprise application registration, conditional access, identity governance, and other identity tools.


Audience profile

This course is for the Identity and Access Administrators who are planning to take the associated certification exam, or who are performing identity and access administration tasks in their day-to-day job. This course would also be helpful to an administrator or engineer that wants to specialize in providing identity solutions and access management systems for Azure-based solutions; playing an integral role in protecting an organization.
Job role: Administrator, Identity And Access Administrator, Security Engineer
Preparation for exam: SC-300



Successful learners will have prior knowledge and understanding of:
Security best practices and industry security requirements such as defense in depth, least privileged access, shared responsibility, and zero trust model.
Be familiar with identity concepts such as authentication, authorization, and active directory.
Have some experience deploying Azure workloads. This course does not cover the basics of Azure administration, instead the course content builds on that knowledge by adding security specific information.
Some experience with Windows and Linux operating systems and scripting languages is helpful but not required. Course labs may use PowerShell and the CLI.
Prerequisite courses (or equivalent knowledge and hands-on experience):

  • Configure and manage user authentication including MFA
  • Control access to resources using conditional access
  • Use Azure AD Identity Protection to protect your organization
Module 3: Implement access management for Apps
Explore how applications can and should be added to your identity and access solution with application registration in Azure AD.
  • Plan and design the integration of enterprise for SSO
  • Implement and monitor the integration of enterprise apps for SSO
  • Implement app registration

      Lab : Implement access management for apps

      Lab : Create a custom role to management app registration

      Lab : Register an application

      Lab : Grant tenant-wide admin consent to an application

      Lab : Add app roles to applications and recieve tokens

After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Register a new application to your Azure AD
  • Plan and implement SSO for enterprise application
  • Monitor and maintain enterprise applications
Module 4: Plan and implement an identity governancy strategy
Design and implement identity governance for your identity solution using entitlement, access reviews, privileged access, and monitoring your Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).
  • Plan and implement entitlement management
  • Plan, implement, and manage access reviews
  • Plan and implement privileged access
  • Monitor and maintain Azure AD

      Lab : Creat and manage a resource catalog with Azure AD entitlement

      Lab : Assign Azure AD role in PIM

      Lab : Assign Azure resource roles in PIM

      Lab : Connect data from Azure AD to Azure Sentinel

After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Mange and maintain Azure AD from creation to solution
  • Use access reviews to maintain your Azure AD
  • Grant access to users with entitlement management

Please note that whilst this course is aligned to the equivalent Microsoft Exam it may not contain all information required to pass the exam. As per Microsoft guidance, further self study and hands on experience is recommended in addition to attendance of this course.
