What are you trying to learn? Microsoft has free online training in all it's software if you google?

I have not worked for more than four years. I would love to find a job now. Although I do not like PAs or anythingg administrative I would consider it but for this I need to improve my administrative skills. vision2learn has lots of nice courses but they never respond. I have read about them on Dooyoo and their reputation is poor. I will have a look at the Microsoft, many thanks.

have a look at the Open University-open learn. They are free and are parts of their paid courses. There are all sorts of subjects and an on-line community so you can talk to others doing the course.

louandcupoftea, thank you. I like it. I remember MIT used to do the same but for me Open University is more suitable as I am in the UK. Will check what I need and print it. Have not studies for a long time.
