If you're in school you can join IBM's Master the Mainframe contest. They provide all the materials and access to a system for free. Looks like registration ends at the end of the month.
You can also emulate your own mainframe with the Hercules emulator.

Most of my training came direct from my company, but [this book helped me a lot.](https://www.amazon.com/Assembler-Language-ASSIST-Wilson-Singletary/dp/0574210857/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1503549483&sr=8-4&keywords=assembler+programming+with+assist
)
And going straight to the source is helpful as well.

Honestly though, while I love the platform, I'd say your time is best spent on more modern languages. While demand should be picking up for it as older developers retire there just aren't many companies out there looking for mainframe assembler developers, and the ones that are haven't been raising the incentives to compete with more popular development options. A lot of the other young people I know in the field are desperately trying to jump ship before they are branded as mainframe programmers. COBOL seems to have a lot more demand if you're interested in the mainframe as a platform and is included in Master the Mainframe as well.

Good luck!
