We are very excited to announce a new partnership with New York State’s Fayetteville Free Library (FFL), one of the most innovative libraries in the country. Webucator developed our Library Partner Program to provide free self-paced courses available through the web to individuals throughout the US via their local libraries. The Fayetteville Free Library rolled this program out to their members in June 2014.
The goal of our partnership with the Fayetteville Free Library is to help our local communities’ workforce development initiatives by helping local residents gain needed skills for the 21st century. At the same time, we hope the availability of free self-paced courses will encourage more residents to check out their local library systems.
“We are excited to make our courses available to members of the Fayetteville Free Library and other libraries throughout the country. We have developed a lot of courses in the last ten years and it feels great to have something valuable to offer those who want to develop their business and technical skills and cannot get the training through their employers. Our hope is that this pilot program becomes a national model.” said Dave Dunn, Webucator’s CEO.
“We are very excited about this new workforce development partnership with Webucator. All library members now have access to resources to make their lives better, including Microsoft Office certification training programs, website development courses, mobile development courses, and much more. We are excited to be the national model for this brand new program.” said Sue Considine, Executive Director of the Fayetteville Free Library.
To access courses, library members simply have to ask their librarian for a voucher code which will enable them to enroll in courses for free. After enrolling in a course, members have 12 months to complete it.
