Still have questions?

I work full-time. Do I have time to take this sprint?

We design sprints for the busy, full-time professional, but we also get that it can be tough to add yet another thing! One of our core features is flexibility: some students like to keep up day-to-day (expect to spend about 1-2 hours per module), others like to binge over a weekend. Whatever group you belong in, we’ve found that our alumni have been able to sustain this over the 2-3 week period.

Do I have to attend all of the live sessions in real-time?

You don’t! We record every live session with our professors and make it available for you to replay, at your convenience.

Can I purchase a sprint without a membership?

At Section4, we believe in continuous learning, so with every sprint you get complimentary access to live lectures with business thought leaders and a professional network to help you accelerate your growth. Not for you? You can cancel the membership at any time.

Can I cancel my membership at any time?

Yes, you can cancel your membership at any time and you will continue to have access to your account until the end of your subscription period. Have more questions? Visit our help center to get in touch.

Will I receive a certificate upon completion?

Every student who completes their sprint receives a certificate of completion. Completing the sprint means watching all course content videos and completing the final project. You can print out the certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile — and feel free to tag @section4 when you share it.

So there’s homework then?

Not in the traditional sense. We provide a sprint workbook and facilitate community interaction, and you don’t have to participate — but we hope you will, as it really brings the materials to life. You’re also not obligated to complete the final project unless you’d like to qualify for a certificate.

Will my projects remain confidential?

Yes! Upon submission, simply flag it as confidential, and we will not share your project beyond the Section4 team.

Can I get the course fee reimbursed by my company?

We can’t guarantee your company will reimburse you, but nearly half of our alumni have reported successful reimbursements. Check out our tips on reimbursement for some positioning ideas and a sample email you can use.

Do you offer scholarships?

We sure do. Head on over to our scholarships page to learn more and to apply for a scholarship.

I have more questions, how can I get in touch?

Visit our help center and we’ll take care of you!

Can I take the course on my own?

Yes, live learning with group works for some, but if you’d like to learn on your own schedule, you have the option to watch all course videos on-demand and submit your project when you’re ready.
