In the last one year, the importance of upskilling for professionals was felt more than ever before. Owing to the increased demand for skilling, the SkillUp platform has since recorded more than 5 lakh learner enrolments and continues to attract learner interest, especially from India, the USA, and Canada.

Simplilearn now aims to onboard five million learners in the next two years on its free learning platform.

With the creation of new job roles and increased demand for specialized skills by employers, aspirants took to online learning programs to secure their jobs or explore new career avenues and continue to do so. Through SkillUp, we aim to further benefit millions more across the globe who face the challenge of affordability and access to quality learning programs.

The SkillUp platform offers learners access to over 1,000 hours of learning and tech skilling programs that cover over 600 in-demand skills. All programs offered follow a self-learning model where learners have access to on-demand video-based content. The curriculum focuses on building strong foundational tech skills for career growth, and all programs are created by top industry and subject matter experts. Some of the popular programs on the platform include Business Analytics with Excel, Introduction to Cyber Security, Java Training, Data Science with Python, and Introduction to Data Analytics. The company has recently added more programs under the categories of Software, Digital Marketing, Cloud, and Data as well.

On completion of every learning program, learners get a SkillUp certificate of completion from Simplilearn. Every week, the company is witnessing more than 2,500 SkillUp learners unlocking their certificates, giving a testimony to its support for continued learning. 

Krishna Kumar, Founder and CEO, Simplilearn said, "With new age technologies like AI & ML, Data Analytics, etc., continuing to be ranked among the top and most relevant tech skills, the need for professionals to skill up is more urgent than ever."
