Earning the Certificate
Any REV program course can be taken individually. To earn a certificate, you must complete all four courses in the curriculum. We recommend taking the courses in sequential order, starting with XREV110.
Each course is a collection of modules that are thematically interlinked. There is a final project deliverable at the end of each course that must be completed and reviewed by our entrepreneurship coaches to earn a Record of Completion. The entrepreneurship coaches will also provide you with feedback on your final assignments to help refine, evaluate and validate the progress on your idea.
- $995 per online course
- $3,980 for the certificate
Time to Complete Certificate
The program's online courses are self-paced and available on-demand for 60 days after the date of enrollment. This enables you to complete the program at your own pace. Each course takes roughly 8-10 hours to complete depending on your familiarity with the topic and experience with online learning.
Our pacing recommendation for courses of this length is to complete each course within 30 days. To be on track, we recommend that you plan to spend approximately two to three hours per week on the course.
