At GitLab we believe in an inclusive approach for thriving as team members and contributing as part of the wider community. That’s why we are excited to highlight our GitLab Learn learning platform, which is newly available to the GitLab wider community.

Now anyone can learn, and anyone can get certified! To get started visit GitLab Learn and create an account.

Free Certification Pathways

On GitLab Learn you’ll find learning paths and certifications that we make available to GitLab team members as well as the wider GitLab community.

Here are some of the free certification and badge pathways you’re welcome to complete on the site, created by the GitLab Learning & Development Team:

  • GitLab 101 certification GitLab 101 certification that covers Git basics and fundamental concepts such as branches, commits, version control, DevOps, GitLab issues, and merge requests.
  • GitLab 201 certification
  • Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging Training certification
  • Remote Work Foundations badge
  • Bias Towards Asynchronous Communication badge

GitLab Technical Certifications

Over the past 12 months GitLab launched 6 new technical certifications, which focus on everything from continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) to security and project management.

These certifications were made available to GitLab Professional Services customers who purchased live instructor-led GitLab training for their teams and GitLab Commit 2020 attendees. As a result of our latest iteration efforts we are beginning to roll out self-service, asynchronous versions to make them available for everyone on GitLab Learn!

New Async Technical Certification Option

We’re now bundling together the three main components you need to earn the GitLab Certified Associate certification asynchronously: A self-study eLearning preparation course, a certification knowledge exam, and a graded hands-on exam you complete in a GitLab sandbox environment. This self-service GitLab training bundle is available on GitLab Learn and is priced at USD $650.
