You need new skills to move into the future, but online education is stuck in the past. Most online courses require you to schedule your entire month around expensive live webinars in which you are just one more anonymous headshot on a packed screen, or you are overpaying for a course library you’ll never use.

That’s why we created the TrainUp.com Institutes. You deserve a learning experience that is both on-demand and rooted in community.

I've been guilty of letting videos play in the background and calling it learning. The Institute Faculty made certain that I applied the concepts to my current job. This is the first online course where I am confident I learned many things.

My tech job means that I can work non-traditional hours. A large portion of my Institute was self-paced, but the conversations always felt like they were happening when I was ready to learn.

It felt like I was working through the material with a cohort even though my classmates were in different cities and engaging with the material at different times. Having others in the course helped me finish on-time. I'm still engaged in conversation with my classmates!

FAQ

Get the answers to your questions here.

Think about the times in your life that you were learning the most. Was it when you were at home doing homework by yourself? How about that time your manager made you sit in a room and watch videos? Our guess is that it was probably when you were in a classroom, with similarly eager students, all working to master a concept together. Humans are social creatures, and learning is a social activity. We learn best when we help each other grapple with ideas and apply them to our lives. TrainUp Institutes are designed to inspire the same level of group interaction that one might receive in a vibrant classroom environment. You can go fast alone, but you will go far together.

When brainstorming a better way to learn online, our team kept coming back to the same frustration - "The teacher in the video is excellent, but I wish I could ask them a question." For this reason, every TrainUp institute is staffed by expert faculty. These are practitioners, experts and thought leaders, who want to give you some of their time. In order to graduate from an Institute, a learner must book a 30-minute one-on-one with a faculty member. Once the time is booked, the learner and the faculty member will be provided a video chat link. The two will meet at the appointed time. While our faculty are there to ensure that everyone has fully grasped the concepts in the Institute, what happens is primarily up to the learner. If you want to work through a specific scenario at work, these professionals can give you their expert advice. While only one session is required for graduation, learners may book as many sessions as they want.

After graduation, learners are now practitioners of a new skill. In our alumni communities, you will find other graduates discussing how they are applying their new skills, posting new resources, or just asking for help. Additionally, our faculty will continue hosting webinars that will be available to all alumni. Learning never stops, it just evolves.

We understand that life doesn't stop just because you wanted to learn a new skill, which is why the majority of our course work is on-demand. We also believe that learning is a social activity, which is why a portion of your curriculum is live. Our live courses are taught virtually by our expert faculty. Each event is unique and scheduled in advance so that learners can prepare to attend. Additionally, every virtual event is recorded so that all learners may have a chance to visit the material after the event has ended.
