The National Learning Institute is offering over 280 courses that are both available from home and free. This unbelievable offer is part of a plan to help the public get access to skills that will help them find work.
Some of the options include database administrator, assistant waiter, groomer, tourist host, forklift operator, dishwasher, video game creator, writing and editing, fast food employee, milkshake maker, electrician, stylist, fiber optic installer, manager, ironer, head chef, baker, and painter.
It seems there is something for everyone. Some of the courses require previous education but many do not. Many are open to people of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds.
The INA and Claro work together to bring us these courses and show that the public and private sector can come together for the benefit of the public. To get more information on the courses available, check out capacitateparaelempleo.org and ina.ac.cr.
