Read on to learn more about what Pluralsight has to offer in terms of plan options and resources.
As previously mentioned, Pluralsight provides potential customers with the option to do a free trial. This free trial lasts for 10 days or 200 minutes, whichever comes first.
According to the company’s website, with the individual free trial, customers can access all video courses, complete skill assessments, create channels, earn certificates, and take notes.
With the individual premium free trial, customers can access all video courses, take interactive courses as well as projects, prep for certifications with Kaplan certification practice exams, create channels, earn certifications, take assessments, and take notes.
In order to obtain a free trial, Pluralsight requires potential customers to provide an email address along with their first and last name. Free trial users must also provide payment information to start an individual trial.
Those interested in the company’s free trials should note that these trials will automatically switch to a paid subscription if the free trial is not canceled before 10 days or 200 minutes.
Pluralsight offers a variety of different plan options for both individuals and teams.
For individuals, Pluralsight offers the following plans:
Each personal plan that is offered includes access to the company’s entire course library, learning paths, channels, course discussions, exercise files, mobile and TV apps, offline viewing, conferences, guides, skill IQ assessments, role IQ assessments, and course learning checks.
For teams, Pluralsight offers the following two plans:
Each team plan includes everything provided to the personal premium plan along with analytics for trends, usage, skills, roles, and channels.
Pluralsight provides an online resource center that features helpful articles, in-depth online guides, an online help center, and more to all website visitors. These resources can be used to learn more about Pluralsight and to learn more about certain technology skills and certifications.
Pluralsight offers a few different student discount opportunities. According to the company’s website, Pluralsight provides “over 500 hours of free content for high school students” via the company’s partnership with Code.org.
Additionally, the company allows high school computer science teachers to access Pluralsight skills via the company’s partnership with CSTA.
Pluralsight’s website also states that “university students may qualify for the Microsoft Azure for Student benefit.” The company offers five free courses on a weekly basis that users can take advantage of as well.
In comparison to online courses offered by other companies in the industry, Pluralsight does appear to charge fairly steep prices.
The company also does not provide much information regarding a money-back guarantee or refund policy. Potential customers should note that Pluralsight’s monthly plan, however, does seem fairly standard in terms of industry pricing.
Although Pluralsight offers free trials, the company’s trial period — 10 days or 200 minutes — is shorter than what some other online course companies provide.
Additionally, those who try the free trial have to go online to cancel their trial before 10 days or 200 minutes, or else they will be automatically charged for the subscription amount of the plan they tried out.
