Free collegiate courses! Be sure to select “open courses” at the top and search based on areas of content or interest to supplement a resume! Requires an email to establish an account
Free certificate programs! Since it’s free, there’s a lot of spam and in-page adds which can easily re-direct folks from their intended destination… I would encourage a practitioner to work closely with members while using this site. It requires an email to establish an account.
