TrainSignal is a technology training company offering training from Microsoft to VMware. I have known about this company since I got into Virtualization back in 2010, they are very supportive of the community sponsoring many User Group initiatives. Back in 2011 I received a copy of some training from them while I was attending school. This helped me out a lot during that semester. At the time they were offereing DVD training materials.
Let’s fast forward to today, TrainSignal now offers it’s entire training collection online and in a subscription based model.
As a vExpert 2013 this year TrainSignal was gracious to give the vExperts a subscription for a year, I asked Emilie from TrainSignal if I could give my subscription away to someone in the community. She came back with a 1year subscription to one lucky winner! See what I mean about the company giving back to the community. More on this later in the post.
The website is easy to navigate, and to filter out video trainings.
Upon logging in you are brought to the dashboard
As you can see in the image above, it is easy to navigate through. You can see the newest courses offered and some of the popular courses. The navigation on the left is straight forward and simple.
Looking at the courses is just as easy, it is easy to filter through the offerings based on vendor. It even saves the search from your last filter.
It shows your progress on the course you are currently going through
The course offerings are diverse and covers many areas, this is valuable to anyone studying for certifications and just wanting better understanding on certain technologies you maybe going to work with.
Having the training available 24/7 is great, Did I also mention that you can download courses for offline viewing? This way you can be able to access your training anytime.

I love TrainSignal, I wear their vNerd Tshirts everywhere. Why? Because they have a product I use and believe in, their company dynamic is outstanding, but the best thing is their love for the community! They jumped at the chance to give something away with no hesitation, another reason I support and promote their offerings.
