We’re building a community of experts.
What we’re doing
Proficiency1 is building a marketplace of online courses developed by experienced professionals. Our students work (or want to work) in the national security and risk intelligence communities, broadly defined. In fact, most of our courses are perfect for any professional whose career requires them to understand, analyze, and engage the world.
We are working with instructors now to develop courses in four categories:
- Foreign languages
- Professional and analytic skills
- Domain expertise
- Leadership and management
We’ll help you get online
Our goal is to help experts who have experience teaching in person expand their impact by providing a platform for developing, delivering, and marketing their content much more broadly. You don’t have to be an expert in online learning or know anything about online marketing. We’ve got that covered, so you can focus on putting together the best possible courses to share with the world.
How it works
We start by working you to help them develop your online course so it meets our standards. Then we help with course production, recording, and editing and load the final product into our learning management system. Finally, we promote the course through the Proficiency1 website and marketplace. When a student enrolls in a course, we share the revenue with you. As our catalog of courses grows, so to will the traffic to our marketplace and the number potential students who will see your course.
