Thank you very much for this post.  I am a former HP Business Development Specialist with multiple HP Sales Certifications.  Unfortunately, I had to leave my job due to a disability that limits me to part-time work.  I wanted to continue my HP training while healing, but was uncertain how to access the Learning Center when not employed by a Partner.  Your information gives me the direction I need!
