This is a reminder that CMG is offering members the opportunity to refresh their skills or learn new ones through Lynda.com. This online training is offered free to all CMG members and their families through our parent union CWA|SCA Canada. Lynda.com gives you access to over 2,000 video tutorials by industry experts on a wide range of skills, including software, design and business.
Since our initial announcement last March, 200 CMG members have used the training service and responses have been positive. Here is what some members said:
“Lynda.com was extremely helpful. I was able to refresh my Powerpoint and Excel skills for my new job. I have recommended it to all my co-workers who have been affected by job cuts and bumping. I took the following courses: Google Docs, Excel, Powerpoint.”
“Thank you; I would highly recommend and encourage others to enrol and train. This is an ongoing process.”
“I found Lynda.com really extensive in the material one can learn, at one’s own pace. The registration process was simple, as was signing up for courses. I have been recommending Lynda.com to anyone who expressed a want for training. I took courses on After Effects, DSLR tips, and video and lighting tips. It would be great to have more options for online courses, although Lynda.com is already pretty extensive.”
