About UpSkill

Alamo Colleges District provides accessible, affordable, on-demand online courses which stack into a professional certificate. These courses prepare you for a new career in high-growth fields. These course learning experiences help workers like you upskill and reskill quickly based on your completed work weekly according to course suggestions.

An instructor does not teach these self-paced, self-directed courses. If you want courses taught by an instructor, email your Enrollment Coach at so the Coach can share more about those offerings.

These offerings provide you a chance to earn a micro-credential showcasing your mastery of knowledge, skills, and abilities to hiring employers in San Antonio. Completion of a course or training pathway does not guarantee employment. Some possible careers may require you to continue to a degree program offered by one of our five Alamo Colleges. Courses are non-credit and do not automatically transfer to one of the five Alamo Colleges.
