    Wow that's expensive. $2400 per year for a subscription to take those courses, not even including taking the certification exams. Training for other public clouds like AWS and Google Cloud is free to audit, and about $500/yr on Coursera for access to their entire platform with certificates upon completion. What's the sense in building a public cloud based on open source technologies when learning about it is going to be this inaccessible?

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for the note.  The IBM Center for Cloud Training provides 20-45 hours of learning (depending on certification) followed by a proctored exam and the pricing is on par with professional certifications from other CSPs.


    Here are other hands on learning options that might be of interest to you:
