Let's take a look at my top three pages for free VMware training. http://ronhogue.com
Hi, I'm Ron Hogue. In the last video, we examined free training from Microsoft Virtual Academy. In this video, we want to look at some free training and training resources that are provided by VMware. Links can be found below in the description.
The first resource is the best in my opinion. It is the top 25 free VMware courses. http://mylearn.vmware.com/portals/www/mL.cfm?menu=topfreecourses
How about that? VMware has compiled their best free training, and put all the links and ratings on a single page. I recommend the vCloud and vSphere courses as well as the Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Design courses.
The second resource provides a very similar list, but groups the trainings by product. So if you're looking for all of the free vSphere courses, you'll find them here. http://mylearn.vmware.com/mgrReg/plan.cfm?plan=33611&ui=www_edu
The last resource is the Learning Paths page. http://www.vmwarelearningpaths.com/
This will guide you through the trainings you should take based on your level and product. To be clear, almost all of the recommended courses are paid courses. The resource here, is the guide for the various paths you would choose.
They provide you with 3 different learning paths. If you're not sure what they mean, there is a question mark that you can rollover to get more information. They go from the highest position to the lowest. In other words, you should start at the right and progress to the left. Next you choose what solution or product like, "Cloud." They then provide you with a list of Fundamental courses to start your learning, Professional courses to get into the details, Professional certifications that you should have at this position on this product, and where you should go for Advanced training and certifications.
While I'm not at all crazy about the background they chose, the way they present the information makes it both logical and concise. If you're not sure where to go next in your VMware career, this is great place to provide you with some clarity.
Do you have other great, free, VMware training resources to share with the community? We'd love to hear about them! Leave a comment and let us know where you've found outstanding VMware training for free.
If things go as planned, in the next video I will have an interview to share with you regarding advanced cloud certifications and membership so be sure to check to that out. I'm Ron Hogue. Thanks for watching.
