Entry Level Azure Certification

Hello Everyone, I am new in this community and I am looking to entry level azure certification and I am confused between Azure Fundamentals (Exam AZ-900), Azure Administrator. (Associate Exam AZ-103), and Azure AI Engineer (Associate Exam AI-100).  I have checked all the criteria on the above certifications from here. Can anyone suggest me I have 1 year experience in the programming sector also and want to build my career in Azure.


If you are new to Azure, I'd recommend Azure Fundamentals, whether you want to be a developer or IT admin. Then depending on what kind of roles you are interested to build your career on, you can choose associate level exams. For example, If you want to be an app developer, Microsoft Azure Developer (Associate Exam AZ-203) would be good to take. If you want to be an IT admin managing IT infrastructures, you should take Azure Administrator. If you want to build expertise using Artificial Intelligence technologies, you can take Azure AI Engineer. Hope this helps.
