Are there any ways of obtaining the full version of Citrix software for training purposes so that I can practice setting up and troubleshooting Citrix in my computer lab at home for free or at a discounted price?

I need to do things like practice publishing applications such as Microsoft Office, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and other applications using Citrix so that I will be fully familiar with doing, supporting, and troubleshooting this on the job.

They have a few products, but I am guessing you are looking for VDI (Xendesktop & xenapp)
Here is a link to Citrix to get a 90 trial license

What other low priced licensing methods for Citrix are available for training and educational purposes that will last for longer than 90 days?

I do not have any info on that. My knowledge is from knowledge transfer from consultants and leverage my support contract.

Google is your friend.

Other then that I do not have any more info.
Good luck

The 90 day trial (99 users) is your only real option without going directly to your reseller to see if they can help you out.  However, nothing keeps you from requesting the new trial licenses every 90 days.  But be careful, do not use this for production, that will get you in serious trouble.

you might want to get into partner program?

but it might cost you more than buying a full licence.

Does Citrix (or any of their resellers) have any programs or licenses where I can buy a license for just one or two users?

Commented:
No, but you can download the Trial licenses and request new one every  90 days as Coralon stated.
Here is Citrix Youtube channel.
This will most likely get you some of the knowledge you need.

You can buy a 5 pack of licenses.. that's the smallest increment you can get.

Is that still valid?  I thought they had done away with the 2-user licenses?
