DINUBA, Calif. (KFSN) -- Walmart is offering an exciting education opportunity to Valley residents. The company is teaching valuable life lessons to the public for free.

"There's resume building, how to build a resume, interview skills, you learn what the rights and wrongs are in interviews," explained VP of Walmart US Learning Andy Trainor.

They're offering free, virtual classes to anyone 16 and above.

"The participants can ask questions, do activities, interact with each other and all of it for free to help the community," said Trainor.

Here in the Valley, instructors work out of the Walmart Supercenter in Dinuba, instructing attendees in 1-hour classes on various topics.

"This is a way for us to utilize our existing training academies," added Trainor, "to help give back to the community and our customers educational needs they might need for skills in the work place."

Classes are all online and open to the public.

"When the COVID restrictions are eased, we'll move some of the classes to face to face," said Trainor.
