    Can you do a private online course when you are on limited capacity to work or could this cause problems with losing this benefit

    Hi @Savepassword and welcome to the community.

    The post you commented on was from 2021, so I'm unsure if you'd receive a reply from any of the original commenters, so I've moved your comment into a separate post, I hope that's ok? 

    But as far as I'm aware, taking part in short online courses should not affect your benefit, but I would speak to your work coach before signing up for anything.  If it was a full time education course, that would affect your benefits.
