A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.

Thanks for the great class. You will be happy to know that I have already started applying information from this class to our organization. The information about putting together a brochure was very timely for me. We also are setting goals and reviewing our positioning. I learned a lot and printed the material for future use.
If anyone says that the learning experience can't be "fun", I strongly recommend that they take a course with Linda Kissam. Material coverage was excellent, presentation was in an easily understood language and just all around fantastic.
I have learned so much from your lessons. I think the most important thing I learned was I cannot and should not create the marketing plan alone. So my first step will be to organize a Marketing Committee to create the marketing plan we need to move our organization forward. Your step by step lessons will be so helpful in making this Committee successful. I can't wait to get started. Thank you!
I really enjoyed the class. One thing I'm taking with me is the different advertising techniques. There were many listed that I hadn't thought of and even some that were free. They will become very useful. Thank again.
I feel so much more centered on what needs to be done and how to start from square one. I really appreciated the examples of the two makrketing plans. I can copy them today and get started.
This course is very helpful to beginning nonprofit businesess, such as the one I am working on. I hope this course continues to be available. I plan to direct and highly encourage any present and future volunteers, employees, members, etc. to take this course as it can be beneficial for them as well as for my organization.
I have enjoyed this class and learned a great deal. I feel I am now able to sit down with my board and develop a very thorough marketing plan as well as setting reachable goals for our Chamber of Commerce. Thanks to my instructor, Linda Kissam, for a fantastic class.
This was my first online course and I thought it was excellent!
This was a good class. I gained information that will assist me in promoting the nonprofit in my community.
I found this course to be very helpful at just the right time in my career. I saw real benefits from the knowledge I gained before I'd even completed the course.
