In this difficult time, opportunities still present themselves in the form of free trainings and seminars in the Philippines for 2020. With many people having suffered setbacks in terms of their career or financial situation, if there is anything people have plenty of, it is spare time. There is hardly a better way to spend that time than in furthering our knowledge within our own industry or even in learning other businesses, exploring other career paths, and considering new ways to reach our financial goals.
Fortunately, many training courses, classes and seminars are still on offer. While some require a fee to attend, many are free and all it will take is an investment in time and an interest to learn.
The following is a short list of free trainings and seminars in the Philippines, mostly within Metro Manila, happening within the next few months as of this writing. Please check for further information as schedules can change at any time.
