Online training makes more sense now than ever…

Proficiency1 provides a flexible, cost-effective way to gain the skills you need to land the job you want and to excel once you get there. You can take our courses when you want and where you want. No need to travel or worry about social distancing: just log on, tune in, and learn.

Our instructors are current and former experts in their fields, and they won’t waste your time with fluff. Instead, you’ll get practical, real-world solutions to your biggest professional challenges in a fraction of the time — and cost — of academic training.

…but sometimes you want live interaction, and we’ve got that covered too.

We’re developing a series of courses we’ll deliver live, either in person or virtually, to your workforce. Many of our self-paced online instructors are also available to provide their content live to our enterprise clients. We recently created an analytic training program that mixes live classes with online material for analysts at one of the world’s largest companies. We’re doing the same for a cybersecurity company and a member of the US Intelligence Community.

Check out our flagship live offering, How to Think and Write Like an Analyst, which serves as the ideal introductory course for new analysts and for more experienced ones who might need to review the basics.
