Training during quarantine with free online courses
The spread of the coronavirus around the world is causing a forced quarantine, generating a major economic crisis. Most companies have had to do a Temporary Employment Regulation File (ERTE) , so that many workers are at home with more free time than they would have ever imagined. It is for this reason that there is an increasing offer of online training. The Adecco group platform has left its catalog of online courses open. It is an excellent opportunity especially for people who need to acquire new skills and are looking for employment.
How to access 70 free online courses
The 70 training programs of the HR company are divided into 9 thematic blocks. Until now, these online courses have been marketed to companies , so that workers can complete their training and acquire new skills. Exceptionally now they are free and you can access them through their platform.
Once inside the main page it is necessary to fill in a form to register . This step is essential to access the training program. Next, they send you a message to the email you have indicated. Notifying you that in the next few hours you will receive an invitation to activate your account.
The email that arrives from acceptance is from GoodHabitz , which is the platform on which all the courses are found. In this same email you perform the activation and a page opens for you to finalize your personal data.

Operation of online courses
When you access one of these free online courses, you will find a description of the course and an informative video as soon as you enter. In the same window you can see the different units that the course has and the name of each of them. They show you what are the objectives to develop and the different types of materials for you to prepare the subject, through videos, presentations, story boards, practical cases, tests, etc. Each topic has its own teaching materials . Something that is very useful is that in each of these courses the information of your progress appears, to know by the unit in which you have stayed and the resources that you have taken advantage of.
