Hi Enrique - For PMP or PMI ACP, several online courses are available for FREE, through local library partnerships with service providers. E.g. In the area where I live, the local library has tie-ups with Lynda.com, and Gale courses, that provide robust courseware and earn you PDUs. I found them to be on par with paid options, and online courses sometimes offer more flexibility, to navigate professional and personal time commitments.

Hi Enrique,

I would suggest looking into the Onward to Opportunity program offered by Syracuse University though their Institute for Veterans and Military Families. Short version is that they can provide free access to certification training resources and the required exams. There may be a wait list, but this is the program I used to obtain my PMP certification. Good luck!

Enrique,

I've found the SANS Institute to be a solid resource for cybersecurity training. Their courses span highly technical to more survey type courses. https://www.sans.org/
