Microsoft Intune training course from Microsoft learning is free of cost. But if you need a verified certificate then, you need to pay around USD 99$. Microsoft Course Number INF260x – Microsoft Azure Security Services includes one module on Microsoft Intune device management solution. If this is your first edX course, I would recommend you check out DemoX.

The Content of the Intune Training Course Module
I have gone through the content of the Intune module, and it’s exciting and useful. One of the topics is How Intune Works? And the answer to that is “Intune device management works by using the protocols or APIs that are available in the mobile operating systems.”

Review of Intune Training Course Content
Overall Intune training course content is good. This course is more into security aspects of Microsoft Intune. But I agree that this covers Intune basics and design considerations. So Intune topics are helpful.
General Data Protect Regulation (GDPR) is due to take effect in May 2018. More details about GDPR and Privacy are available in the Intune module of this course.
But I also think Microsoft learning team needs to update the content for some parts of the Intune training course. For example – There is a reference to Mobile Device Management Design Considerations Guide v2 in the Intune training module. And the TechNet gallery PDF document is pretty old (updated back in 2015). It talks about Intune hybrid (with SCCM) architecture consideration which is not very relevant in 2018.

How the Intune Training Course Placed?
To get the verified Certificate, you need to complete all the modules of the course INF260x. But in this post, I covered only Intune module in details. You have three(3) months time to complete this course, and I think that is more than enough to finish this course.
One module will be released each week, with a moderated discussion board. Students will complete hands-on labs in an online virtual environment. A Verified Certificate is available after obtaining 70% of the course graded events.
