It's that time of year again... time for another update of the Microsoft Sentinel Ninja training! (access the training here)


In this post I'll list the new and updated modules with important new features for the ninja training. As per usual with the ninja training updates, there have been many changes to Microsoft Sentinel in this time and the updates found here should not be considered exhaustive. To keep up to date with all the new features being released in Microsoft Sentinel, make sure you regularly monitor our what's new page.


Microsoft Sentinel Ninja Training Certification

An important update to the training is the release of the Microsoft Sentinel Ninja Training knowledge check. This has already been announced in a separate blog post but for completeness it has also been included in this update post. You can take the knowledge check and if you score over 80%, you can fill in the self-attestation form to receive an Microsoft Sentinel Ninja Training certification. 


Note: it can take up to one business day for you to receive your certificate via email.
