Want to ~beef up~ your resume this 2023? Luckily for you, the University of the Philippines Open University will offer a wide variety of free online courses for the general public (yes, as in you don’t need to be a UP student!) starting this February. 

More specifically, they’re releasing 23 short courses and five additional multimedia production courses that you can take at your own pace whenever and wherever you want. Once you complete a course, you’ll be getting an e-certificate that you can add to your CV as a 16-hour training session. 

 "These courses are FREE, SELF-PACED, and OPEN to everyone, so you may complete them at your convenience. At the end of each course, e-certificates will be awarded to course completers which you may include in your resume as a 16-hour training," UPOU announced on Facebook last January 19.
