Microsoft Learn, https://learn.microsoft.com, is a place to learn, discover new skills, find certifications, and complete interactive, hands-on learning paths to advance one’s career.

Cloud Skills Challenges are hosted on the Microsoft Learn platform.

To start a challenge, register by clicking the "Begin now" button on the Challenge page that will be provided by Microsoft. You'll be asked to log in to your Microsoft Learn account and will be added to the challenge.
If you don’t have a Microsoft Learn account, that is okay. You can create a free account by selecting “Create account” from the login screen when joining the challenge.

To complete a challenge, you'll need to finish the designated collection of Learn content before the challenge end date (within 30 days of signing up for the challenge).

In the 'where you stand' section you will see a fraction that equals 100% (i.e., 8/8 or 5/5 or 12/12).

The challenge page and 'where you stand' section take up to a few hours to refresh. Please wait a few hours and check again.

You can find all the challenges you've previously participated in, or are currently participating in, on the challenge tab in your Learn account profile.
