Live Better U Can Help You Gain the Skills You Need for the Jobs of Tomorrow, Today
Believe it or not, it’s been two years since Walmart launched its education benefits program, Live Better U. A lot has changed in that time, but one thing has stayed the same: our commitment to helping you affordably advance your education.
That’s why we’re making the Live Better U benefit available to all full and part-time associates, starting on your first day of employment.
So from the first time you put on your badge and vest, you have the opportunity to get a college education from an accredited institution, willing to work around your schedule – all for only a dollar a day.
But the traditional path through college isn’t for everyone.
So to fill that gap, we’ve added six skilled-trades programs and 19 new digital transformation certificates. These programs were selected to help associates quickly gain valuable, in-demand skills and launch their plans for the future.
New Skilled Trades Programs
