@vijaykummar Splunk Answers itself is a great repository for learning Splunk. Spending 15-60 min here daily teaches me something new everyday! Whichever topic you get stuck with you can search here on Splunk Answers. For example for your question you can check out: https://answers.splunk.com/answers/462710/are-there-any-splunk-training-materials-for-new-us.html

Also check out Splunk .Conf materials: https://conf.splunk.com/conf-online.html

Another quick repository is Splunk: How To channel on Youtube.

I've created a number of Splunk tutorials and videos that you might find useful:

Installing Splunk on a Linux VM
Splunk Infrastructure Design and Sizing
Splunk Storage Sizing

Separately, I've also put together a training class that will get you started with some common Splunk administration work, including building a Splunk instance, onboarding data, using apps on the common information model, and doing some basic searching and reporting work. It's not a replacement for the Splunk classes, but should provide you with enough experience to get started with using and administering Splunk.

Let me know if you have any questions. Good luck with learning Splunk!
