To support those who have lost their jobs due to COVID-19, we’re giving away up to 1,000 ACG annual subscriptions. And we’re asking A Cloud Guru and Linux Academy learners to help us.

Pay it forward

Things are far from normal right now. But we continue to believe people can find a brighter future through learning.

Cloud learners can empower others to gain the knowledge and develop the cloud skills needed for a career advancement just by earning certs for themselves. For every cloud certification A Cloud Guru and Linux Academy users earn between May and June 2020, we’ll award an annual subscription to a person applying to receive a free ACG subscription.

Any AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud cert earned qualifies. And (in case you missed it) all AWS and Azure cloud cert exams can be taken from home, as can two GCP exams.

Award recipients will be selected based on need as determined by the ACG team, who will be reviewing each and every application submitted.

The COVID-19 assistance program is available to residents of the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. But learners anywhere are able to participate in the Pay It Forward initiative.

This move follows a permanent price reduction for individual annual memberships intended to make high-quality tech education more accessible and affordable to aspiring cloud gurus.
