Computer and IT Training Tuition Scholarships for Federal and State Employees
Most Federal and State employees want to improve their computer/IT skills.
However, high cost of training and a busy schedule have held them back.
Now, the National Education Foundation (NEF) CyberLearning, a non-profit
organization, dedicated to bridging the "Digital Divide," offers Federal
and State employees a unique opportunity. With the support of Microsoft and others,
NEF CyberLearning is now able to offer full tuition scholarships, valued at $2,000,
to the first 5,000 applicants, thus enabling them to take any or all of the 650+
Internet-based online Personal Computing and Computer Professional courses
from anywhere at any time.
The high-quality, user-friendly courses are either self-study or instructor-led.
They cover all levels and almost all topics, including Computer Basics,

To sign up, just visit www.cyberlearning.org, click on "Free IT Training,"
complete the "Federal and Other Government Employees" application and pay a

$75 is the only cost, since the tuition is free for Federal and State employees.
Many Federal and State agencies reimburse the $75.
A registrant receives immediate access to all 650+ online courses,
an online library of the latest 1,000+ computer/information technology books,

"I have found the CyberLearning online courses to be extremely easy and useful.
I liked pre-course self-assessment and IT books online and available 24/7. The
course screens were interactive and made me feel as if I was in the application
itself. The site looks and feels very professional. The list of courses is huge.
It includes something for almost everyone. I find this to be a very worthy cause."
