The course is set for a duration of one month, which will train professionals regardless of their prior experience in the tech industry or background. The participants can apply for the course on aka.ms/AIOdyssey and gain access to learning modules and online resources. The program consists of two levels, which have to be completed by 31st January 2024.
The first level of the course will teach various Azure AI services that are used to build and deploy AI products. It will also contain various solutions to development challenges and their use cases.
