The State Employment Agency (SEA) in cooperation with Google offers unemployed and jobseekers registered with the SEA, as well as employees at risk of unemployment, who need to improve their skills in line with labour market requirements, the opportunity to improve their digital skills for free online in five training programmes: "IT support", "Data analysis", "User experience design" and "Digital marketing and e-commerce".

The language of instruction for Google's programmes is English and they are delivered on the international online learning platform Coursera. 

Duration of training:

  • IT Support – 100 lessons
  • UX Design - 200 lessons
  • Data Analytics - 180 lessons
  • Project Management - 140 lessons
  • Digital marketing and e-commerce - 240 lessons

For unemployed and jobseekers registered with the SEA, training is provided for at least 4 hours per working day, and for employees at risk of unemployment - for at least 2 hours per working day.

The number of places and the duration of the training are limited!!

The SEA may terminate access to a training programme if the participant has not attended training for 30 days!

At the moment, all free study places are taken, so you will have to wait longer than usual to access the studies!

After filling out the application form, within about one month, access to training will be sent to the e-mail address specified in your application (access sender: State Employment Agency of Latvia + Coursera, subject of the letter: "You're invited to learn on Coursera!")!

If you have any questions or queries, we welcome the clients registered at the SEA and other interested parties to contact the SEA remote training team at
