I have a friend who tried taking a course with GCF. When she dropped the course because of difficulties they sent her an email threatening to block her. That us terribly inappropriate.

GCFLF is the site we always send customers to because it is so very beneficial in so many ways! Keep up the great work and website!!
I am a huge fan of GCFLearnFree.org. I can't tell you how many customers my staff and I have referred to this site over the years to strengthen their computer skills, so they can be more marketable in the labor force; countless individuals. And the feedback and genuine appreciation we hear when we see them the next time is truly priceless. It's almost like the self-esteem is off the charts. Thank you for such an invaluable resource for our customers and more so, our community!
GCFLearnFree is an inspiration! We asked for some in depth training for our staff and they responded immediately by setting up a remote training showing us all the new bells and whistles available. We have recommended GCF to job seeking clients for years and we now have several other tools available for teaching classes to our clients. They are super approachable, responsive and dedicated to helping others. I don't know of any better traits than these.
They have been a huge help with the customers we serve, and it sure takes a load off of us not having to search all over the Internet to find free training! Thank you so much!!
This site has been a GREAT tool for us to use with job seekers. When the economy changed in 2008, we saw more and more people needing to change careers and they didn't have the skills to do that. Gcflearnfree.org allowed us to point our customers to a free site to learn skills needed in today's job market. Thank you so much for helping us help our customers!!

This organization has done amazing work in helping break the digital divide for adult learners. We use their website extensively and promote their resources to all of the adult educators in Texas. I highly recommend GCFLearnFree to anyone who is looking to better their own skills or the skills of their learners.
I work with job seekers as a government employee. It can be a challenge to educate folks on today's technology when it continues to change/advance so fast. Teaching a class with people who have a diverse-level of skills can feel overwhelming. That is why I LOVE GCFLearnFree.org - it does the teaching for me so I can then facilitate and help those who have a need. As an educator, I love seeing folks who can learn something new... at their level, at their pace! If there is anything I can ever do for GCFLearnFree.org, they have my support! JB
GCFLEARNFREE.ORG allowed me to differentiate instruction for my students while learning new skills and earning certification in Microsoft Office 2013.
Our school is recovering from the lost of its academic materials including books and laptops because of a flood in the past year. And since it is an extension ministry of our church, it is driven by service and love, not profit. And so, as I volunteer of our school, I searched for free learning materials regarding the use of Computers and its components. What makes GCFLearnFree.org is that their materials are professionally prepared. They even have colorful relevant pictures and videos all over their material, which they've painstakingly and meticulously prepared by them. And they're free; free for all, forever, as they promised. Now, underserved students can now be parted with the necessary knowledge. Thank you GCFLearnFree.org! God bless you all!
I teach computers to adults in a public library. GCF LearnFree is my favorite resource to recommend. Excellent, easy to follow tutorials are available for Microsoft Office and so much more. I have learned from it as well, taking all of the online classes that are available. Keep up the great work!!

I have been using GCFLearnFree for the last week to obtain Microsoft Office certifications. The information is presented in a very accessible way, and the tests are a great way to gauge your progress. This is a valuable service to the public, and I am very grateful to have discovered them. I am a mid-level professional using this site to brush up on my skills.
GCFLearnFree and GCFAprendeLibre are great assets to any organization or individual who wants to advance skill levels in a variety of areas. It is an amazing free resource of tremendous high quality.

Our organization utilizes GCFLearnFree in the computer classrooms at all of our Job Connection Centers across six counties, as well as in our specialized computer skills training program. All of the instructors find it easy to use and have noted that the participants in the classes love it! We are very pleased with what this system offers, and I applaud the expertise of the team that designs and writes this constantly improving curriculum. I also am in awe of this Goodwill's generosity with its mission, providing this wide ranging, well designed program of instruction to the World for free! Thank you and congratulations on a job well done!
Our organization has a contract with a local workforce board to provide training and intensive services to its customers and GFC LearnFree is utilized every day. Customers find it user friendly and the tutorials are outstanding providing instruction in both hard and soft skills over a wide variety of subject matter.
A few years after I graduated community college I lost some knowledge that I used to have with Microsoft Excel and was jobless and needed something on my resume to make me stand out. I happened upon GCFLearnFree one day and saw that they offer free training in Excel. I couldn't believe it was free! And not only was it free, it was super user friendly! After I took GCF's training, I looked into obtaining a Microsoft Specialist Certification in Excel 2010 by testing through my local community college. With GCF's help, I was able to set myself apart from all the other competition and I secured a job shortly thereafter!
GCF LearnFree is an essential element of the services we provide to our communities. It is one of the first things we teach people to do. Often people ask me how to do this or that and tell me how much they would like to improve their computer skills. I can't tell you how many people I have directed to this site quite apart from work.
In addition I have used the site for my own training to improve my skills in Excel and Power Point. What a wonderful worldwide tool this is.
