The Ultimate SCCM Resource Post
With all the information out there and the everchanging products it is very difficult to keep up.
I will provide some of my sources that I use, and some that I don’t use but could be practical for you.
Forums are a good source for information and to see what other people are asking questions about. Don’t be scared to answer questions if you think you have the answer.
Previously, the TechNet Forums have been the go-to for forums and asking questions.
Lately, Reddit has replaced TechNet Forums.

I have experience from using the below online courses:
Microsoft Virtual Academy has also been a viable option, but unfortunately they are closing down in phases and moving all the content to a new platform. What this will be is still a bit unclear.
Books are a difficult medium as they are difficult to keep update. However, they are a good starting point if you want to learn the basics of SCCM.
You can find them both in printed form and as e-books on Amazon.

I would say do it in this order:
