Online Training Subscriptions:*
The newest programs being offered by SUGA are online training subscriptions to CBT Nuggets, and LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com). These are both high-quality global providers of on-demand IT and workforce training.
SUGA currently has twenty CBT Nuggets training accounts, and twenty-five LinkedIn Learning accounts. Given the limited number of accounts and in an effort to allow as many members as possible to participate, we are currently offering you 60-day access.
In order to be eligible for this benefit your organization must be a current SUGA member, and had at least one paid SUGA membership between the years of 2001 and 2020.
If you need to renew your SUGA membership for 2021 you can renew online Here.
