No other mechanism for obtaining passes for students will be available. If a Learning Partner orders a MOC course but does not select the Azure Pass that is available with the course at the time of purchase, the Partner will have the option to return to Courseware Marketplace and subsequently order that Pass if needed.

Partners, please reference the Terms and Conditions for Azure Passes distributed through Courseware Marketplace here. Passes will be valid for 90 days from being allocated to you on the Courseware Marketplace. Expired passes cannot be reissued

MCTs are permitted to request one pass for their eligible Azure course preparation needs. This continues to be the case and MCTs can request their eligible Azure course preparation pass here, however this offering may be terminated at any time.
