Hi all, I recently found some self-paced, free online courses with Cisco Networking Academy - where you can enhance your computing/networking skills in preparation for a job in something like IT, cybersecurity or for an internationally recognised Cisco certification. Whether or not you go on to get a job in IT or a certification - you are able to enhance your skills for free and receive a CV-booster digital badge as well as a certificate.
I took one course to kill some time around a week ago - "Introduction to Cybersecurity" and found it was quite interesting. Unfortunately, some here do require you to go through an academy and pay - but most (including those linked below) are free and self-paced.

The NDG Linux ones move on to 'NDG Linux I and II' - where the self-paced classes are $29.95 each, but these are not compulsory - just another course to lead onto the LPIC-1 certification.
I hope this helps someone learn something, boost their CV but also kill some lockdown boredom!! The link on the 'Get deal' leads to the 'All courses' page where you can view everything they have available.
