Toronto – June 13, 2020 – UFCW Canada’s ground-breaking online education program, webCampus, continues to grow with the addition of new “On-the-Go” courses.
Designed for busy learners, webCampus On-the-Go modules look at interesting topics and relevant skills that can be completed in 15 minutes or less.
Each course is designed to provide opportunities to learn that are ideal for workers who are ‘on-the-go’ between work, family, and community responsibilities. With no tests or exams, you can take in well-organized lessons and acquire new skills, and your time can be dedicated to enjoying what you learn.
The new courses feature short videos and ‘to the point’ course material that provide participants with encouragement and the knowledge they need to learn and grow, when they need it.
Like traditional webCampus courses, webCampus On-the-Go courses are available for free to all UFCW Canada members and their family members, as well as our community partners.
