Informatica Training?

Hey guys,

My job needs me to learn up Informatica for a new project I'll be on. The problem is that they only have a few things to read about the program. They have a lab manual, which would be the BEST way for me to learn, except they don't have any of the data they use in it. So it's basically useless. Then they have a pdf that is about 600 pages of just text. Unfortunately I don't learn that way... I'm only on page 100 or whatever and literally haven't remembered anything I've read.

So I was wondering if you guys knew of a good place to learn this stuff online for free. Everything I've found is upward of $850.

    Possible dumb question: have you asked your company for training? Informatica ain't cheap... can't they possibly build $850 of training into the budget?

    Successful Kickstarter get! Drop by Bare Mettle Entertainment if you'd like to see what we're making.

    Not a dumb question at all... I'm... not sure to be honest. The thing is I'm not officially on the project and apparently two other people learned Informatica by reading this PDF. The problem is that I'm still new and hate to sound like I'm high maintenance but I just don't learn from reading something. I need to physically DO something in order to learn it.
