Training course A820 is designed and required to be completed before Identity Panel is installed on-premise. For customers using Identity Panel Azure Market Place Edition (SaaS), this course is mandatory if your plan to complete a SaaS security review.
If you are an architecture or engineer that has been tasked with deploying Identity Panel, then this course is for you. Course A801 is not required if you do not plan to use the application in your work-job. However, if you plan to deploy and use the product, you will also want to complete course A801. They do not have to be completed in any order, but it is recommended that you complete course A820 and return for A801 after you install Identity Panel.
You must be an engineer, developer, or architect in the technologies you plan to use with Identity Panel, based on your role in your Identity Panel project. For example, if you are going to be responsible for reviewing the security of Identity Panel, you would need to be a security expert. If you are going to be responsible for Identity Panel and Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM), you should have an expert level knowledge of MIM.
Therefore, you must be an expert in one of these applicable domains or subject matters to attend this course.
