There are many online platforms that can help you learn any skills. You can find platforms to learn anything online for as low as $10 per month or course.

In one of the previous blog posts, I shared how you can get access to premium PluralSight courses for free for 1 month. In this post, I will share different ways to get LinkedIn learning for free.

LinkedIn Learning is a video based online learning platform where you can find courses on different scopes like Technology, designing, business, digital marketing, creativity and many more. It was previously known as Lynda which was acquired by LinkedIn and later rebranded as LinkedIn Learning.

If you are seeking for free options to learn skills online, this post will guide you various methods on how you can access LinkedIn Learning premium courses for free.

The actual subscription cost for LinkedIn Learning is $29.99/month. I have discussed three different methods you can use to get linkedin learning for completely free and some of these don’t even require you to enter the payment details.

Also the certification gets added to your certification section of your LinkedIn profile after the completion of course. So you get free courses with free certification with LinkedIn Learning.
