Ep21: How to Get Coursera Courses for Free Byte Sized Security

    • Technology

I'll explain how to access Coursera courses for free with a public library card. This is possible for people living in specific states and cities like California, New York, Tennessee, Missouri, and Chicago. I'll share personal experience of using library resources to take an 8-module Google cybersecurity professional certificate course from Coursera for free, from which I earned CPE credits towards my CISSP renewal. I'll also mention the added bonuses of a library card, including access to Udemy, free WiFi hotspots, newspapers like New York Times, and more. I encourage listeners to explore this free route to improve their cybersecurity knowledge, saying a sign of curiosity and inquisitiveness, two qualities important to succeeding in cybersecurity.
