How can I finish the Azure training without a subscription

Rob Russell 0 Reputation points

I'm trying to complete the Azure Admin certification track and the modules are requiring you have a subscription. I don't have a subscription that I can play with and make changes. I'm not a global admin either. How can I get around this? I must be missing something as it should be possible to learn Azure w/out having to pay for Azure first.

This question is related to the following Learning Module

Azure: A cloud computing platform and infrastructure for building, deploying and managing applications and services through a worldwide network of Microsoft-managed datacenters.Training: Instruction to develop new skills.
