We still have a few places remaining on the Pillar Summit’s 12-week Professional Community Manager course. The deadline for registration is midnight on Monday, April 11.
This course is designed solely for people managing online communities on behalf of organizations. If you want to learn the playbook of proven tactics and strategies, master the theory behind community work and upgrade your community management skills – this is the perfect course for you.
To answer a few common questions about the course:
Q1. What time will the lessons be?
There will be a minimum of 3 lessons distributed in pdf format each covering sub-topics within that weekly theme (e.g. recruiting members). In addition there will be webinars in which topics will be covered in greater depth and you can ask your questions before the group. These will be in the evening European time. Webinars will be recorded and questions can be submitted in advance.
In addition we will have open-clinics for two hours a day where you can drop by the chat channel or contact us directly to clarify any questions you have covered by the material or seek help on your own communities.
There are no fixed times for the course. You can study the material at whatever time suits you. We do ask that you progress through the material on a weekly basis so not to get left behind by the group. This course will not impact your working hours.
Q2. What if my boss/company cannot pay in time?
This has been a common concern. Companies sometimes take time to go through the payment process. As long as you let us know before the April 11 deadline that you plan to attend, we will enroll you in the course on the good faith that you will pay.
Q3. I have a holiday/other engagement during the course, can I catch up?
Yes. If you miss material you will be able to catch-up both through the website and by contacting us directly to help you with any material you might have missed.
Q4. How many people will be taking the course?
We want to keep the number of participants on the course low to give as much attention to participants as possible whilst still keeping it financially viable. We estimate the initial group to consist of 15 to 20 people.
Q5. Will you be running the course again?
We haven’t made a decision on this yet.
