SkillSET is a joint project started by leading technology companies that offers free skills-based training and education to prepare you for an increasingly digital workplace. Through the SkillSET platform, you will learn the professional skills necessary for jobs both now and in the future.

By joining SkillSET, you will gain free access to the most up-to-date, self-paced training materials available, ranging from general business skills, basic digital literacy and entrepreneurship to more advanced topics such as cyber-security, big data or Internet of Things.

SkillSET’s Purpose & Mission

Our coalition has made a firm commitment to prepare workers for the digital jobs of the future, as well as fostering a culture of life-long learning.
