The free course we recommend is Personal Finance 101: Everything You Need to Know, which is taught by MoneyCoach and is backed by financial professionals. The course aligns closely with the U.S. Treasury Financial Education Core Competencies, a blueprint to enhance baseline financial literacy in the United States.
This fun and engaging course is designed for anyone looking to gain an excellent, practical knowledge of personal finance, covering everything from taxes to credit cards. It's meant for everyone from complete beginners just heading off to college to those getting ready for retirement. Don't worry! No previous personal finance knowledge (or math) is required, and you'll never need outside software or materials.
The course is structured to maximize your enjoyment and engagement. They teach you an entire personal finance curriculum through a series of short (5 minutes or less), engaging, animated videos. Each video teaches you everything you need to know (practically speaking) about a specific topic, like buying a house, in a way that even a total beginner can understand. And with over 52 videos in total, you'll learn everything you need to know about personal finance, from how to pay your taxes to how to buy a car to how to pay off your student loans. The great thing about this course is you can stop and start and complete it at your own pace.
