Setup your Account

You will be asked to identify areas of interest so LinkedIn Learning can highlight learning content that aligns with your interests and goals.

  1. Choose the course categories that you are most interested in.
  2. Select skills that are of most interest to you. As you select skills categories, similar skills will populate that you may also be interested in.
  3. Set weekly learning goals. This is an optional feature that can be completed at a later time. Once goals are created, reminders to continue learning will be sent to you each week.
