Up to 100,000 job seekers and workers will be able to take the virtual courses, learning the essential skills they need while practicing physical distancing.
Labour, Training and Skills Development Minister Monte McNaughton noted that the $3 million investment will provide training on topics such as infection control and conducting incident investigations.
