All over the world, we’re going through unprecedented times because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s been a tough couple of months. Every day, we’re reminded of just how critical it is to support one another during these challenging times.

At WSO2, we understand that it’s our utmost responsibility to provide the support that our community needs at this time. Here’s a list of measures that we’ve taken to provide you with learning resources and flexible learning options.

  1. Free self-paced learning courses
  2. Our range of courses on the free WSO2 self-paced learning platform will help you familiarize yourself with our products, wherever you are and whenever you want. It doesn’t matter if you’re a complete beginner or already have some experience with WSO2 products - there are lots to choose from!

  3. Sign up for our free live online training sessions
  4. Self-paced learning is great, but if you need some classroom sessions with an expert instructor, you can sign up for our free online classes that are conducted by our product experts in real time. What’s more, you get to sign up for our certifications for free if you attend at least half of the sessions for a particular product.

  5. WSO2 certification
  6. This is also an opportunity for you to gain your WSO2 certification. After you’ve tried out the self-paced learning, attended our online classes, and played around with the product for yourself, why not attempt our certification exams? If you want to learn more about all the benefits of WSO2 certifications, check out the blog on why you should become WSO2 certified.

    Our current certification options include:

    • Free certification for partner candidates - The certification is free of charge if the partner candidate passes a particular certification on the first attempt of their first registration. Each registration has 2 attempts. Our Partners receive a promo code and will be billed at the end of each quarter.
    • Free live online training for WSO2 API Manager and free certification for whoever completes this training. You get one registration (with two attempts) free with this offer. You should have a minimum of 50% attendance (this will be monitored) for the sessions in order to be eligible for the free certification.
    • Free certification for WSO2 Identity Server - The candidate needs to enroll and complete the self-paced training at https://lms.wso2.com/, which will be monitored. The candidate gets one registration (with two attempts) for the certification. This offer is valid for registrations made from April 15, 2020, to June 15, 2020.
  7. Take part in our online events and webinars
  8. Our resources don’t stop at training and certification. We may not be able to speak to you in person, but wherever you are in the world, we have a host of other events you can join from the comfort of your own home. Stay tuned to learn more about our upcoming localized online events.
