Remote-how Academy is a unique platform that pools together professionals and leaders in the field of remote work in order to share best practices and key insights with those of us interested in pursuing flexible careers.

In addition to showcasing the many remote work opportunities available, Remote-how Academy prepares students by enhancing their skills as effective and marketable remote-workers.

Although I'm only halfway through the Academy, I've already started applying many lessons to my current position -especially those about time management and communication techniques.

Overall a great experience! Everyone I interacted with on my journey at the RemoteHow Academy was very professional and extremely nice.

There is so much to learn. The video sessions are very informative and entertaining. Several assessments introduce tools or help you understand yourself better. There are also small quizzes scattered throughout to prepare you for the exam. My favorite section was "Self-Awareness" where concepts and tools are introduced that help you figure out what makes you tick.

Whether you have been working remotely for many years, as I have, or are just starting out, I would recommend the program to anyone who wants to be up to date with remote working skills.
