‘Empowering not only Kabayans!’: Filipino Institute introduces free online certificate courses


The Filipino Institute has recently introduced a new program that allows residents to study free of charge via its website. The UAE-based training centre is a Filipino leading learning platform for education and skills training. 

With a goal to empower not only Filipinos in the Middle East, Mr. Gabriel John Rimando, the founder and president of the Filipino Institute, said that his organization is making it possible for anyone to study their curriculum anywhere and any time. 

While it’s still updating its website, currently, it has announced free education for the following programs: Access 2013 Core Essentials, Access 2013 Expert, Adobe Acrobat 7, Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional, Adobe Acrobat XI Pro-Part 1, Adobe Acrobat 7, Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional, Adobe Photoshop CS-Foundation, Adobe Photoshop CS-Intermediate, Building a Brand on Social Media, among others. 

The self-learning scheme is available to be taken wherever the student is. 

After taking a course, a student may get the certificate certified by the Filipino Institute, an internationally-accredited organization, for a fee of AED50. The same document may also be attested by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).
