Happy Holidays! Our Academy coaches are busy ensuring our stores are ready for the busy holiday shopping season. As a result, we will be operating a reduced course offering schedule through December. We look forward to seeing you in future classes in the new year and are excited about a few new offerings on schedule to release in January.
Walmart Community Academy is excited to announce the upcoming launch of our Be Your Own Boss series of classes. This series of classes consists of 8 classes that will take participants through the journey of creating, running, and evaluating a business. Whether you are looking to capitalize on a hobby/side hustle, have an idea for a new exciting business, or currently have your own business and want to brush up on some skills these classes were made with you in mind. Check back soon for course availability and we look forward to seeing you soon!
We've made it easier to store and access your Participant Guide. After logging in to your dashboard, select Courses and click on upcoming courses to access all of your guides. After the class session, you will find your content and feedback survey on the Completed Courses tab so you can reference later.
"Matt was an awesome coach and after Interview Skills class with him, I feel much more secure about the interview process. As someone who hasn't had to interview in over a decade, I am incredibly grateful to Walmart for offering these super accessible, helpful courses to the public!" -Jaki
"Thank you for a great first experience with Wal-Mart Academy. PS, the instructor who led this particular class, Chadd, is a real gift: 10/10 for presenting, 11/10 loyalty, 12/10 encouraging the participant to WANT to do better, learn more, grow. Great job!"
"[Mobile Devices class] would definitely be of value to a novice. My facilitator was very knowledgeable, and I enjoyed talking to him."
"Miguel did a great job- it had to be very hard to do a class with one person. I don’t know how to use Zoom either so I’m sure it had to be frustrating. Despite all barriers Miguel had found in front of him, he did a lovely job. I learned a lot of information and will review the participation guide from time to time. I will refer my family/friends/ clients/ community towards these classes. I think it is wonderful that Walmart is offering them, and think once word really gets out, it will be very hard to register. Thanks again! "
