Here’s how TrainedUp works
Schedule a personal demo
TrainedUp is all about straight-forward online video courses. We made the learning experience simple enough for even the most tech-phobic church people. There’s nothing here that will confuse Miss Betty, promise.

A live demo is the best way to get a solid feel for TrainedUp. It’s a video call with someone on our team, likely Kevin Fontenot or Scott Magdalein.
They usually last about 20 minutes and you’re very welcome to bring others on your church’s staff.
These are real examples from a real church.
Create a central hub for learning
The way people learn is changing. Online schools are commonplace. Churches are beginning to move toward online teaching, too. TrainedUp lets you gather all your training into one, organized place. Your church people, volunteers and leaders, will be able to go to one location to get access to everything. From vision casting to volunteer orientation, missions and evangelism, leadership development and staff training, it can all live in one place.
So simple, there’s nothing to learn
Getting started with a new online tool can be intimidating. We wanted TrainedUp to be a zero-learning-curve tool. When you start building courses in TrainedUp, you’ll find that every step and option is obvious. And how courses are organized is straight-forward, too. Each course has a title, feature image, a description, and unlimited Modules. Each Module lets you upload or record a video, add files or notes, and add questions for your Team Members to answer. I know “simple” can feel cliché, but it’s true in this case.
Start fast with our pre-built courses
After helping hundreds of ministry leaders with online volunteer training , we realized two things. First, getting your first course ready to go takes a little time and work. Second, there’s a ton of low-hanging-fruit that is common to almost every church when it comes to volunteer training. We decided to build a library of high-quality video courses to help you get started fast and save you from creating some entry-level training. Our library covers just about every ministry area in your average church.
It’s all ready for you to use with a single click. And only the courses you choose will be visible to your volunteers.
Track everyone’s learning progress
A huge advantage of using an online tool for training is that you can keep track of how everyone is progressing while they learn. Now you’ll have up-to-the-minute data about each person’s engagement with training. You’ll be able to see who’s enrolled your courses, who’s in-progress on a course, their answers, and what courses each person is enrolled in.
TrainedUp works on any device
You can’t expect your church people to sit at a computer to learn. And we don’t expect you to only use a computer to create courses, either. That’s why TrainedUp works on any device, smartphones and tablets included. Your learners can enroll in courses, watch videos, and answer questions from whatever device they have with them. You can create engaging training courses from your phone, even record and upload videos directly to TrainedUp without ever touching a computer. It’s very 2017.
