Frequently Asked Questions for Learners
We're building a new way for IT professionals and L&D teams to reach training instructors transparently - direct to the knowledge & expertise who will deliver positive and impactful learning experiences.
Large training companies often rely on independent instructors, treating them as commodity, and acting as an opaque barrier between you and them. We think the choice should be yours.
Our affiliated training instructors are experts in their field, and specialise in delivering the highest quality learning experience.
All our courses are 100% live and led by an expert training instructor, so you receive individual support throughout the course, and can ask questions anytime.
There are no sales people involved: with trainingigs you can ask any question about the training directly to the instructor that will deliver it. What's more, because we don't have to pay sales commissions, all proceeds go to the training providers.
Courses on trainingigs are offered in various formats:
Public scheduled classroom
Private/closed, in standard format or tailored to meet your specific needs
One on one tuition
All our courses are live & interactive trainer-led virtual sessions, delivered via Zoom or Teams.
Why do I need to create an account?
If you are interested to book or enquire about a training course or a private tuition directly with one of our independent training providers, then you should sign up for an account. This will allow you to connect and enquire directly with our talented independent training instructors.
Do you vet the trainers?
We use four layers to ensure the quality of our expert independent trainers.
Restricted by-invitation-only membership on the digital marketplace.
Only expert trainers with proven track record shall be on-boarded on trainingigs.
Accreditation by relevant bodies.
Where the training course leads to a professional certification (e.g., Scrum, TOGAF, PECB, AWS) we only accept verified accredited trainers.
Feedback on the delivery.
We ask previous learners to rate and offer feedback after the completion of each course, which you can read to make your own judgement on the quality of the training material and teaching style.
Interview & referrals check.
A good "old" interview and referral check may be useful to complete the screening.
How do I enrol?
Once you find a course you want to take, you have two options: click the enquire button to interact and book directly with the training instructor, or email our admin team.
Can I see the trainer's profile before booking?

Do you offer self-paced online courses?
No. All training courses offered on trainingigs are delivered live (in classroom or remotely) by expert trainers. We believe that having the opportunity to interact and ask questions is essential to a productive learning experience.

What is the meaning of "trainingig-economy"?
The UK Government defines gig economy as "the exchange of labour for money between individuals or companies via digital platforms that actively facilitate matching between providers and customers, on a short-term and payment by task basis”.
The term "gig" is a slang word for a job that lasts a specified period of time. Traditionally, the term was used by musicians to define a performance engagement.
We coined the term trainingig-economy to mean the application of gig economy to training services.
