thanks @vrklgn that’s the one I found first, but wanted to be sure I wasn’t missing something offered by Google directly (though I know this is Google-led too, only on Coursera)

I mean honestly just doing a plain old RTFM https://support.google.com/a/#topic=4388346 really gives a lot of knowledge especially since Google also provides some neat “rollout guides”

think google started moving the training content from coursera to qwiklabs (at least for partners). i belive content is the same though.

I’ve thought about doing a full-on training course sometime, because I know there are absolutely some gaps in my understanding. I gotta say, though, having my own tenant to poke at & break things has been invaluable.

That's how I learned. But it was a live tenant with 50 ppl

Oh yeah - having a testing domain to just try out and break things is great for learning!

The Google Workspace YouTube Channel is pretty good as well, however the content is a bit all over the place

I think Plural sight has some courses as well (but I haven’t tried it)

Thanks, all — this is a perfect example of why this Slack group rocks 🙌

One way to get your hands on a training domain is to become a Certified Trainer. That will give you an education domain for training and demo purposes. For free as long as you qualify as a Trainer. The GSFE bit is free, you will still have to host the domain somewhere on your own dime.

or reach out to your partner for a "sandbox" domain.

That's super nice if your partner gives you that.
