Free (and discounted) Online CE’s While You’re Stuck at Home

Most of us are spending many more hours at home during this (hopefully not too long) uncharted time.  If you are still at work, you’re probably slower than usual. Let’s take this time to educate ourselves and get some continuing education credits! I’ve compiled a list of free and super-discounted online courses – most of them are free or discounted only for a limited time so be sure to take them ASAP.  It’s likely that in-person CE events will be sparse for the foreseeable future – take advantage of these great offers!
