There's a Free personal finance course being offered by the University of Florida. If you have questions about budgeting, taxes, debt, expenses, taxes, credit, credit cards, risk management, investments, mutual funds, etc. this is a course for you.

We are currently on week 2. But don't let that stop you. I have found it very useful so far. This course probably will take 1.5-2 hours a week of your time.

This course is activity-based with emphasis on your life as the basis for your work. In addition, you will learn how to apply the principles you learn in a family environment. We will learn about cash, credit, wealth, and risk management as well as the environmental effects on personal and family financial management. Students will earn badges for completing various modules and demonstrating certain skills.
