*Update, 11/11/15 – In honor of Veteran’s Day, and in recognition of the extraordinary support provided by families of veterans, Coursera is proud to announce that we are extending our free Course Certificate program to include spouses. Veterans and their spouses can access free Course Certificates online or in any of the 27 in-person learning hubs launched this year in collaboration with the VA and The Red Cross. Read more below on how to redeem your Certificate. Thank you for your service, and happy Veteran’s Day from Coursera.
The First Lady, Michelle Obama took to the stage as a keynote speaker at the Women’s Veterans’ Employability Summit today to announce Coursera’s new partnership with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA).
The joint partnership provides one free Coursera Verified Certificate to every US Veteran to help improve employability skills in high-demand fields such as data science and entrepreneurship. Coursera and the VA are also teaming up to launch 20 Veteran-facilitated Learning Hubs across the country to promote interactive learning experiences for Veterans to increase online accessibility and support.
The VA will endorse Coursera to 21 million US Veterans through their Veteran Employment Center. This effort will expose Veteran learners to industry relevant education and help them master new skills to succeed in today’s workforce. Visit the Veteran Employment Center to learn how to redeem your free credential voucher.
