It took me sometime, but finally completed the MDE Ninja training. I got to know about this course from a local user group meetup and it hit me. This certificate is not a standard Microsoft certificate, but I would say more of an achievement celebration from Microsoft for the effort we put to learn the tech. I thought I’ll share my overall experience in this short post.
I want to learn Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, how do I do it?
This was the very question I had as it connects to other portals, a lot of things to know and was unclear of the 1st step. Once I saw the Ninja Training content, I was so happy. Only because everything was just under one website and the community keep on updating the URLs.

MDE Tech Community blog which has updates to the above content can be found here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-defender-for-endpoint/bg-p/MicrosoftDefenderATPBlog
In a nutshell, the training touch bases on all the important factors in MDE and for most of the topics they go very deep. I noticed some may cover the things that you’ve already learned in a different topic, but not a deal breaker. There are hour long YouTube videos of the past Ignite sessions on Microsoft Security which is really good.
I recommend this course to anyone who wants to know MDE and its capabilities and this can be a stepping stone to achieve the MS-500 exam as well.
