Acquire the SCCM, Intune, Windows 10, and Azure cloud skills at your own pace. These new skills are important for our job security as I mentioned in the post “Future of SCCM Admin Jobs“. In this post, you will see Free SCCM Virtual Labs by Microsoft.
NOTE! – Updated on 14th May 2019. Microsoft informed that they are working on more lab content and will be published in near future. Can you please comment if you want to cover any specific topic with SCCM Virtual LABs.
Free SCCM Virtual Labs is a service provided by Microsoft to help IT Admins and Developers to learn new Technologies. The old links to SCCM and Intune TechNet Virtual Labs are NOT working. More details about SCCM Intune Windows 10 hands on labs training in this post.
TechNet Virtual Labs have been Migrated to Azure platform?
It seems the TechNet virtual labs have been migrated to Azure platform. It is pretty clear that virtual labs have been migrated to Azure Cloud Apps from the jump host server detail. The new virtual LABs platform requires Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) client. This will work on Mac OS machines when you have RDP client on those devices.
But I couldn’t find any communication or announcement from Microsoft on this topic. I have two previous posts with information about SCCM and Intune TechNet virtual labs.

- SCCM ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 List of Virtual Labs Training
There were 36 hands-on labs available for SCCM and Intune. But none of these hands-on labs are accessible at the moment. I could see only Microsoft Excel hands-on lab in the TechNet virtual lab portal.
Microsoft moved TechNet Labs http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/virtuallabs to new hosting solution or Azure called Microsoft Self Paced Labs. More details about Self paced labs here – https://www.microsoft.com/handsonlabs/SelfPacedLabs.

IT Pros or SCCM admins will be presented with a series of instructions, and access to one or more SCCM, SQL virtual servers, with no additional software or setup required. We need to complete these instructions within 120 minutes or less.

SCCM Intune and Windows 10 Virtual Labs
Following are the links to get access to Hands-on virtual labs. There are only 5 Self-paced Labs for SCCM. As I explained in the video tutorial here, you need to download the RDP file into your machine.
Once RDP file is downloaded, launch the file to connect to Jump host server in the Azure cloud. This jump host server will have all the instructions and details to complete the hands-on training activities. These guidelines could vary depending upon the technology like Intune, SCCM, Azure or Windows 10.
