Learn where to log on and learn marketable tech skills
Last fall, we introduced our first guide to free and low-cost tech training in New York City, a downloadable resource to help you learn highly marketable tech skills.
Today we’re updating it to feature all-online classes. Because even when the job market is in flux, tech skills like web development, data science and cybersecurity are a solid bet.
The good news is that New York City is rich in free and low-cost ways to learn these in-demand skills, offered by a host of government agencies, universities, private companies and nonprofits that have adapted to the current moment by moving their content online.
This guide is designed specifically for newbies and job-changers, geared toward helping users get a foot in the door for jobs in these key fields. Of course, no introductory class will give you all the mastery required for a high-paying tech career. But these courses can help you make a career switch or just be more valuable in your current job quickly and affordably.
Think you can make it in tech? We do. Here are dozens of places to start.
