    Hi,

    Regarding the complimentary access to Coursera contents of specific specializations, Do I get only the first month free, post joining the Data science community OR I get first month free subscription for each of the courses listed in the Data science/AI community page? Pleas clarify.

    Hi all, 
    I have used the free subscription. You can get 1st month free on any particular specialization of your choice from the list they have provided. 

    Hope that helps,
    Thanks and Regards,
    Pampa

    Hello,
    Where to use the free subscription? After I registered this community I had received an email "Your Coursera free month....", in the email mentioned below:
    "Take the next step to obtain your free month of select IBM Data Science and AI Specialization programs on Coursera -- compliments of the IBM Data Science Community."

    I already signed up the Coursera account, but I don't know where to obtain my free month of IBM programs on Coursera? I can only have some 7 days free trail programs on Coursera. If you know the link or how to obtain it, please share, thanks a lot!

    hi, Pampa,
    Where you used the free subscription?
    I joined this community and received an email, but I don't know where to make complimentary?

    Hello! 

    Upon receiving the free subscription, it has been deactivated due to the fact that there was a payment issue. However, the subscription fee is 0$ if you use the invite. I don't understand why the status of the course says inactive and I now don't have access to it. Anyone else with the same issue?

    Regards,

    Vishmi

    Hi,
     
    You get the first month for free - my suggestion is to activate this when you can actively commit to getting all of the courses completed in a learning path within that month. 
     
    You also need an active and valid subscription payment source for actions that are not completed post the end of the free month.
     
    if you wanted to stop the subscription when you have completed the courses then you can. 
     
    But you will need to have an active subscription method while learning.
     
    One other tip would be to review and complete the materials prior to signing up and completing the assessments to gain certification. 
     
    That would optimise your active free subscription value if this is what you are trying to take advantage of.
     
    Regards
