e-Learning Resources

AFB offers many eLearning courses and webinars, some are free while others require a tuition. Courses cover topics from technology to aging, education to employment, and mobility to rehabilitation. You can find a list of these courses and other pertinent information on their website: eLearning. I was specifically intrigued with the Job Seeker's Toolkit (Free). This course is accessible, self-paced, and free online and helps users develop skills and tools for the job market. It covers self-awareness, career exploration, the employment process, the interview, and maintaining employment.
