Red Hat Learning Subscription Basic

Red Hat Learning Subscription for flexible modern learning and skill development

Flexibility is important when it comes to technical skill development. IT professionals must keep up with the fast-paced technology industry around their busy schedules and competing priorities. That’s why access to continuously available training and resources is critical to successful skill development. It can be difficult to carve out time for full-day training courses, so on-demand training allows users the flexibility to adjust their learning to wherever and whenever is most convenient. 

Red Hat Learning Subscription Basic provides a full year of unlimited access to training content from across the entire portfolio of Red Hat® products and technologies. A subscription provides high-quality technical content on a wide range of topics such as automation, app development, and hybrid cloud management, so users can develop multiple skills with a broad curriculum. The self-paced courses integrate recorded instructor-led videos, text based ebooks, and hands-on labs to  cater to different learning styles. Content is managed and updated by Red Hat experts to ensure the most accurate information is provided to learn about Red Hat software. 

50% of the courses in Red Hat Learning Subscription were added or updated in the past year.  (Red Hat internal data)

Additional resources are included to complete the learning experience. Hands-on, cloud-based labs allow users to practice what they’re learning in real Red Hat environments. Skills paths and pre-assessments provide guidance on course selection. Reporting capabilities at the user or management level provide visibility to track progress and justify budget dollars spent on training.
