If you're looking to take some classes to give you an edge in your current line of

business, or to expand your horizons in areas you may not have thought about, consider RazorLearn.

Classes are typically 90 minutes in length, and take place at the University of Arkansas Global Campus in Bentonville, next door to our downtown location. They’re at 704 SE 5th St. All classes are free and open to the public. There are no prerequisites. Sign up online here, or read more about the topics offered in 2024. All classes are FREE.


Lastly, to take an entirely different direction, if you find yourself without a degree and not progressing as you had hoped professionally, look into Upskill NWA’s programs. Upskill “connects participants to career opportunities in the healthcare field and takes care of things like tuition, books, fees, licensing exam costs, and other historical barriers. Upskill NWA participants are partnered with a Career Navigator who is with you every step of the way to ensure your success”. 

Upskill’s help is entirely free. Not only do they pay ALL school-related expenses, but they have been known to help students with transportation costs, child care, required supplies, and other expenses that can keep a student from thriving.  There are some requirements that must be met for participation - mainly that they do not take students with Bachelor’s degrees, and there are maximum income requirements. Once those requirements are met, this program is FREE. Their website is here, and has tons more information. 


If these programs sound interesting and you’d like more details, our team is personally acquainted with the folks involved in all three! Reach out and we can arrange an introduction, or answer some basic questions. Just click below and fill out the form.
