Salt Stack Certification! Can we take the exam without taking official training courses from SaltStack?

As per  the company certification page:


To become a SaltStack Certified Engineer, a candidate must:

Have demonstrable real-world experience with SaltStack
Complete Official SaltStack training courses:
Salt Administration I
Salt Administration II
Pass the SSCE exam

 wondering if this will change soon

 @anthony  Linux academy instructors are doing a splendid job and i can't express enough thanks to the whole team. Learning is really made interesting and effective.

I have one suggestion, which your team might already be working on. For the AWS Certifications Practise exam is there an option to display the section wise percentage of scoring available so that it will help a student to know which area/topic he should focus more . I haven't taken any practise exam lately as i am still preparing myself for the AWS Specialty certifications.

Please share if you have Python Developer courses coming in July.

 @itsmearthur  These exams are nothing short of super hard, to be honest. Anybody who says they can get you all the objectives in less than 15 hours, is just lying to you. Other side of that is we have our course authors full time. So they are here to help you while you are going through the course and answer questions. We don't hire contractors, that wont' be here to help if needed. But the fact we have full time course authors now, also means, you will be getting azure content every quarter going forward. Currently, we have 4 of them and are still spinning up. Hiring another 3 this quarter is the goal.

 @anthony I'm really glad to hear that. Microsoft Azure it's the cloud platform of choice for the company I work for and I've noticed that many training providers are still behind on content on Microsoft Azure. It makes me happy to know that you guys at Linux Academy are investing and working on bringing more Azure content to the site, and  knowing that is enough for me to be glad to have became a subscriber. Thank you!

With so much content to be released do you think about special offer for 1year plan? If I knew so much would be released I would buy 1 year plan wihout blink of an eye when spring offer was active.
Image of anthony

@zl0ty HI, the pricing we have reflects all the content we are building and the hands-on labs. our cost of building content with interactive diagrams, hands-on labs and full time course authors is a bit higher than those places who just use power point videos. I do not think we will be offering any promotions anytime in the near future. We are generally moving away from that since we try to price our content right to make it available for our students year around.
