A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

I think it's really well suited for training up a team from beginner level to competence with new technologies. It looks to align well to certifications which can provide confidence in the skill level of the team.I'm not sure how it will play out long-term once we have people who come in with a high skill level in an area as it can be difficult to figure out how to plug gaps in general knowledge with the platform.It doesn't work as well for those learners who prefer to just read the man pages and get hands on with a home lab (apart from the cloud playgrounds, but the platform is expensive if that's all a learner will use).

I think with the recent pandemic, having quality training for those of us that had to purchase it out of pocket was great. Everything worked flawlessly and I got the training I was looking for without the huge price tag like some other vendors have. The labs could be more detailed for those areas that might be new to those people who are looking at getting into something different and training in a field that has more possibilities for them.

  • Provided a detailed map of the courses and what you need to learn/practice to keep up the pace.
  • Instructors were responsive and available during and after the course.
  • Course pricing was on the higher side compared to other companies, but the value for the higher premium still pays dividends to this day.

Cons

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

  • More material on other cloud providers GCP, Azure, Huawei
  • Extend the sandboxes to other cloud providers not only AWS
  • Include more material for non-technical people, sometimes the sales teams are completely lost in the platform but they would like to learn about it

  • Honestly the only negative I've had was the test prep book sent as part of RHCSA Boot Camp. It seemed the author rushed publication to address the release of RHEL8. Unfortunately he left containers out completely. I think this has been sorted in a later edition.

To me it was extremely simple to utilize and keep track of progress. Another fantastic feature was the certification prep exams that most of the trainings had incorporated into the tools. As I studied I found it extremely user friendly as I went video to video and flowing around each of the sections

Alternatives Considered

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy) was the only platform we evaluated for the vast majority of our cloud training, however we have found other providers are better in certain areas and use them to supplement A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy). For example, TutorialsDojo and WhizLabs both have better quiz systems in my opinion. Both of them present more difficult questions that better reflect the AWS ones as well as giving better feedback.

More or less the same as others I have used. Minus Infosec Skills does not have apps or smart tv/casting ability. Udemy PRO is also a better value $$$ for content. O'Reilly costs more but includes digital books for the most respected industry books. Infosec Skills has better testing/quizzes built in so far that I have used.

Return on Investment

  • Engagement scores around investment in L&D have increased.
  • There's excitement around upcoming changes to our technology instead of fear we have seen in the past.
  • We feel confident we will be able to deliver these new technologies - although we are at the start of our journey.

  • Excellent path for me.
  • I have access to the education I want to be a better professional.
  • In February, I was promoted to security analyst and I had at least the basic knowledge thanks to Infosec Skills.
  • I have never been in touch with pentest labs or skills, and now I've been taking the courses in Skills and I know what is all about.
  • Now I'm getting a solid knowledge in risk management thanks to the offer I got in Skills.
