Governor Cuomo recently announced New York State Department of Labor’s partnership with Coursera, a leading online training provider.
Through this partnership, unemployed New Yorkers have free access to nearly 4,000 online training courses – many of these courses can be pathways to certifications, professional certificates, and new jobs.
To request a no-cost Coursera account, unemployed New Yorkers should visit this website and submit the online form.
Alternatively, Patchogue-Medford Library cardholders have access to Udemy, another leading online training provider. Udemy offers over 6,000 online courses in over 75 categories, including 2,000 courses taught by native speakers of Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, and Japanese. Udemy can be accessed on our ‘Research A to Z‘ page. You will need a Google or Microsoft account to sign up; these services are free and easy to create if you do not already have either.
