This is an absolutely free online course site. It has a lot of specific and general interest courses to help you round out your resume. Although it is a good place to start and maybe take a few courses, Udemy (which has both free and paid courses) is recommended.

Udemy

Udemy has a healthy mix of free and paid courses. There are plenty of online courses on a range of subjects created by experts in their fields. Although the paid courses sometimes delve deeper in a subject and have more learning tools, but don’t discount the free courses. They are packed with amazing information and are also created by experts in their fields as well.

The paid courses start at at $14.99 and they go up from there depending on the complexity of the subject and detail to learning materials and resources.

Facebook Blueprint

This is a free learning resource that Facebook offers. Although a lot of it are things that you might know if you use Facebook heavily for personal and business use, this course is still great to take because there is a bunch of useful information on Facebook marketing.

The course is divided into modules and when you finish all of them you get a certificate which is in the form of a pdf. Having this certificate course is an excellent for your resume–even if you are not focused on social media or marketing, it reflects well because you are taking the initiative to learning a subject that is an important part of our daily lives.

After that you must take it again in order to keep your skills up-to-day. The course is divided into modules with a mix of videos and text. After most of them you take a quick test before heading to the next module. This is a free course and all you need to do is sign up!

You Tube

Although you won’t get any certificates, You Tube offers you a wealth of amazing videos in the form or tutorials, documentaries and recorded classes to further your knowledge in any field or subject.
