In this sense, we currently have a wide variety of educational platforms that offer us the possibility of accessing first-level education. And you'd be surprised to know that investing in your training can now be more affordable than your Netflix , Amazon Prime, and Disney + subscriptions.

More than 50 dollars a month in streaming platforms

It is enough to do some calculations to corroborate that we spend an average of more than 50 dollars for monthly subscriptions on streaming platforms such as Amazon Prime, Apple TV , Paramount +, Disney +, Netflix, HBO Max, among others. Not to mention Youtube Music or Spotify!

And although we invest a generous sum of money in these types of distractions, it is highly likely that we do not have enough time to see so many series, movies or documentaries, right?

Well, today I want to talk to you about a good alternative that, in addition to being more profitable, will allow you to get certified with the best universities in Latin America. Although access to all courses is free, digital accreditation is competitively priced and below the monthly fee we invest in streaming entertainment.
