LinkedIn Learning is an online learning platform that helps you discover and develop new skills. Simply sign up for a personal account to enjoy unlimited access to over 16,000 expert-led course videos covering business, creative, and technology topics.

Most courses are broken into bite-sized chunks and they can be watched on your devices anytime, anywhere. Once you finish a course, LinkedIn Learning will issue you a certificate of completion. You can add it to your LinkedIn profile to share your accomplishment with your network and to showcase the new skills that you have attained!
