Red Hat users can now expand their learning through a new offering, Red Hat Learning Subscription Premium. Initially only available to subscribers in North America, the new premium subscription program offers self-paced learning and access to Red Hat instructors through live, interactive, virtual classes. Subscribers, who want to hone their skills and keep up with the latest technology, get unlimited access to study a range of topics across Red Hat’s product portfolio.

“Our learning subscription is always evolving to help you meet business needs and solve any IT challenges you encounter in the field,” said Red Hat in the video introduction.

Enhance your Red Hat skills

Subscribers can set their own course for learning which includes setting learning goals and preparing to get Red Hat certification.

The company first launched Red Hat Learning Subscriptions in 2016. They have since become a top-selling training and certification tool, helping Red Hat professionals learn at their own pace, aligned with their companies’ goals, needs and schedules.

“The events over the past year have changed the landscape for learning. Our customers expect flexible learning options that align to the new normal of working from anywhere and learning in the flow of work. With the Red Hat Learning Subscription Premium, we’re providing users with a modernized, flexible experience that allows our customers to fill critical skill gaps quickly and effectively so they can accelerate their IT transformation efforts,” said Ken Goetz, vice president of training and certification for Red Hat.

Insider Take

In the last year, we have all learned that we must do things differently to stay productive in a remote world, to continue our learning to remain competitive, and to master technological tools to be current, if not ahead of the curve. Red Hat has already seen success with its learning subscription. This is a great opportunity for them to expand their offerings to reach new audiences – and to earn recurring revenue while doing so. Also, having additional users and developers certified in using Red Hat also makes those users more “captive,” and likely to stay with Red Hat. After all, why would you invest that kind of money in learning if you were going to switch platforms?
