AdvertisementF ederal, state, and local government agencies that serve the unemployed can apply here to provide free access to Coursera’s courses—an offer that typically costs $399 per year—through September 30.
Anyone enrolled at that time will have until the end of the year to complete their courses and earn professional credits.
Called the Coursera Workforce Recovery Initiative, its an extension of the company’s Coursera for Government program, an initiative originally launched in 2017 to help equip government employees and residents with in-demand skills.
Agencies in Illinois, Arizona, and Oklahoma will be the first to offer Coursera’s new program, along with governments in Colombia, Costa Rica, Greece, Malaysia, Panama, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.
