Our week-long online courses are focused, deep dives on specific topics facilitated by an advanced practitioner in the field. You will gain real-world knowledge as well as receiving valuable feedback and advice.
Your work matters. These courses will help you succeed in your role. And just maybe help change the world while you’re at it.

How does it work?

  1. Read a couple of short articles, then answer knowledge check questions before the live online event.
  2. On Wednesday, point your browser to the 90-minute interactive online event. Listen to the lecture, ask questions, and discuss content with your colleagues and fellow participants. (And don’t sweat it—the recording will be available if you can’t make it live.)
  3. Do your homework by Sunday—it will help you process what you learned.
  4. Our incredible faculty will give you feedback on your homework.
  5. Want more? Keep the conversation going in our community forums.

Each course costs $125 for NTEN members and $250 for non-members.

These courses can count towards your required curriculum for the Nonprofit Technology Professional Certificate, and many will also qualify for CFRE credits.
