What is a Cohort?

A cohort is virtual, instructor-led training where learners focus on specific learning outcomes in small groups over an intensive time horizon ranging from 1-4 weeks. Cohorts are offered in a format that best accomplishes customer objectives and audience needs, and provide an interactive setting for learners who are colleagues to build community, foster collaboration, and encourage progress toward a common goal.​
