Courses can be either concept shorts or longer classes with quizes. Concept shorts are 10 to 15 minute long videos designed to teach one success principal. Members of the Institute can replay them as often as they like.

Longer classes with quizes are broken down into 30 minute to 1 hour sections that can be completed as time permits. A quiz is presented at the end of a class to help determine if the training was understood. Each quiz must be passed with a score of 80% or better to move to the next section. Once all sections are completed a certificate is issued online. Members check in often because The Institute's course catalog continues to grow.
