Courses

Our in-depth online courses are focused on topics relevant to your work and led by nonprofit experts. You’ll gain real-world knowledge, as well as receive valuable feedback and advice. All courses are live captioned.

How does it work?

  1. Read a couple of short articles, then answer knowledge check questions before the live online class.
  2. On Wednesday, point your browser to the 90-minute interactive live captioned class. Listen to the lecture, ask questions, and discuss content with your colleagues and fellow participants. A 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, and your instructor will give you feedback.

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 or the Digital Equity Professional Certificate, and many will also qualify for CAE or CFRE credits.

“It’s very gratifying to feel like I’m ‘studying’ and working towards advancing in a field I’m interested in. It’s easy to feel like you are floating in the abyss when you are interested in nonprofit tech.”
