How do you like to work and learn?

In person, with everyone in the same room, bouncing ideas off each other and sharing their experiences in a group setting?

Live online, where you can work from the comfort of your own home (or anywhere with a decent WiFi connection, really), but still be able to chat with your colleagues and classmates in real time?

Or on demand, where you can take your time, review lessons on your schedule so you don’t have to give up large chunks of your working day to increase your skill set?

However you learn best, Pragmatic has the options for you.

Since before the pandemic, we’ve seen how important it is to offer different training options for our courses. Our own market research showed that, while people did enjoy our in-person public and private courses, they wanted more choices and flexibility in the way they learned. And so we got to work.

In late 2019, we launched our first live online course, and not long after we released Foundations On-Demand. And now that we’re able to safely offer our popular in-person training option again, we can provide you with the training options you need to best learn how to build and market products people want to buy.

And that’s not all.

Regardless of your training option choice, your learning will continue long after the class is over in our award-winning Pragmatic Alumni Community (PAC).

As an alumni, you can connect with product peers and industry leaders from around the world with your free, lifetime membership. You will learn how other alumni are applying Pragmatic tools and concepts at their companies and have access to our exclusive community to share ideas, ask questions and swap insights.

The PAC also offers you unlimited access to the entire Pragmatic library of tools and templates covered in training. It is the go-to resource for product professionals to turn theory into action.

The PAC makes it easy to take your training to the next level once class is complete.

Not sure which training option is right for you? We’ve laid out the benefits of each option so you can get a clear picture of what you’ll experience.

Benefits of In-Person

After a year online, you might be looking forward to getting out of the house or your office for some old-fashioned face-to-face time.

Here are some reasons you might like to learn in this format:

  • Network In-Person during scheduled breaks.
  • Ask your instructor questions in real time.
  • Listen to stories from your peers.
  • Get certified in just one day.
  • Earn a lifetime membership to the PAC.
  • Know that your safety is our priority with the clean classroom initiative.

Bonus Perk: We also serve up some excellent food to keep your brain fueled up all day.

Benefits of Live Online

Many people learned that they thrive in online environments, which is why we will continue to offer virtual training opportunities.

Here are some reasons you might choose a virtual format:

  • Network with your virtual peers who could be learning anywhere in the world.
  • Interact with instructors during the live online courses.
  • Enjoy learning wherever you’re at because no travel is required.
  • Break up your learning into two half days to better fit your schedule.
  • Take the course with your whole team even if they live far from you.
  • Reach out to moderators for support while still engaging in the conversation.
  • Earn a life-time membership to the PAC.

Bonus Perk: Pajama pants are technically an option. We’ll never know.

Benefits of On-Demand

On-demand is also convenient, and perfect for busy professionals who don’t have a full day or half-day to dedicate to training. You can learn at your own speed and return to the material as many times as you’d like during the one-year class window.

  • Chat with other students enrolled in the course and your instructor.
  • Complete the course on a timeline that works with your schedule. The only requirement is to finish the modules within a year.
  • Enjoy learning wherever you’re at because no travel is required.
  • Take the course with your whole team even if they live far from you.
  • Earn a life-time membership to the PAC.

* Pragmatic Clean Classroom Initiative includes the following precautions:

  • When possible, we will require the venues we select for our trainings to follow strict sanitation guidelines
  • Protective masks and other personal protective equipment will be provided
  • Full sanitation of the class room each morning
  • Appropriate safety precautions will be in place for meals and snack breaks
  • Open air environments will be provided for lunch when possible and weather permitting
  • Attendees are welcome to dine off property at their own expense, should this increase personal comfort levels
