Yes, we offer discounts to Pluralsight Skills business plans depending on the amount of licenses purchased. To learn more about volume pricing, please contact Sales.

You must be a Pluralsight Skills plan administrator to cancel a business plan.
To cancel your business plan, please reach out directly to your plan's dedicated sales rep, or email us using the link below directly from the email address on your Pluralsight account.
Each learner needs their own license. All Pluralsight Skills business plan licensing is license-per-learner, and we do not offer concurrent licensing. Our plans are priced accordingly, whether your organization needs two licenses or more than 1,000.
For example, if you have 5 people on your team, you’ll need 5 licenses. Plan administrators do not need a license to manage their team, but if the plan admin doesn’t have a license, they can’t watch content.
Accounts are personal to the learner using them and cannot be shared or re-used. A learner who has an account can be invited to your business plan, and bring their viewing history to the plan.
Pluralsight is the technology skills platform. The Pluralsight skills experience includes skill assessments, thousands of courses and curated paths to create an interactive, personalized learning experience.
Pluralsight Skills isn't a Learning Management System (LMS) designed to simply house content. Pluralsight can integrate with many LMS systems and content aggregators, including SumTotal, SuccessFactors, Cornerstone, Absorb, Pathgather and Degreed. We can integrate with other LMS depending on the integration capabilities of the LMS.

Yes, if you would like a Pluralsight Skills business pilot for 10 or fewer users for our professional plan, you can set up your own pilot here. You can use PayPal or a credit/debit card to start the pilot.
If you don't want to enter any billing information or would like a pilot for more than 10 users, you can submit a pilot request here. Someone from our sales team should follow up with you within 2 business days.
Business pilots will automatically cancel upon the expiration date. Once your pilot expires, you will not be billed and all members of the pilot will lose access to Pluralsight Skills content.
Tip: If you are not continuing with a paid business plan after your pilot, please remove all members of the plan. If you do not do this, each user will be restricted from joining other business plans or signing up for individual subscriptions.
The best way to understand the Pluralsight Skills course library is to take a look at our content here.
We have thousands of expert-led courses and more added daily, in these top technologies:
- IT ops, including Windows Server, Docker, Oracle, Cisco, Linux, VMware, CompTIA, MCSE and SharePoint.
- Security, including security auditing, penetration testing and digital forensics.
- Business professional, including leadership, project management and Microsoft Office.
- Data professional, including SQL, Hadoop, MongoDB and Tableau.
- Creative professional, including Unity, Maya, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere.
Many of our courses have transcripts and closed captioning available. We also offer paths and channels to organize the learning journey.
Our content is designed to keep you and your team up-to-date on all the current technologies and frameworks you need. Keep an eye on our Technology Index to see in-demand technologies and must-have languages and skills.
Our authors are expert practitioners with years of real-world professional experience in their fields. On average, we accept less than ten percent of applicants who apply to join our author network. They are selected both on their expertise and teaching ability.
During the course production process there are two explicit reviews: a review of audio and video quality, and a peer review performed by a trusted Pluralsight author. Peer reviewers use Pluralsight’s Course Expectations and Instructional Design Guidelines, along with their own experience and expertise as the basis for their feedback.
Channels are an excellent way to organize the content you want your team members to learn. You can create a channel, add members and watch as their skills improve.
Channels can contain Pluralsight Skills content such as courses, as well as external links. As a plan admin, you can feature certain channels in your learners’ channel experience, and even automatically add new team members to a channel. Please click here for a closer look at Channels for group plans.
We don’t offer certification exams at Pluralsight—we help you prepare for them.
Paths and Kaplan practice exams are available for many of the industry certifications, such as CompTIA, PMP, Cisco, MCSA, VMware, and Microsoft. In Pluralsight Skills, please go to Paths, then click Certifications to view paths and practice exams designed to prepare learners for certifications.
Yes, Pluralsight IQ measures skill levels in an adaptive test that takes less than five minutes. Many of our paths are associated with a Skill IQ. Paths designed to prepare learners for certifications typically have a Kaplan practice exam associated with the path, instead of a Skill IQ.
Learners get a rating from 0-300 on a skill level of novice, proficient or expert. Please click here to learn more about Pluralsight IQ and Skill IQ.
Learning checks are a quick way for learners to check their comprehension of a course. While Skill IQ may ask about concepts from a large number of courses in a path, learning checks, created by the course author, are limited to one course. Learners can review their results and re-take the learning check.
Learners can generate certificates of completion for content on Pluralsight Skills, which may be submitted for CEU or PDU credit depending on the education program. Please see What continuing education programs is Pluralsight authorized for? for a list of programs that accept Pluralsight content as credit.
Plan admins in Pluralsight Skills can view a wealth of business analytics around their learners’ experience on Pluralsight Skills. Explore your learners’ Skill IQ levels and most-watched subjects and content, which channels are getting the most views, and keep track of your license count at-a-glance.
Note: While you can view a learner’s Skill IQ level, such as proficient, you can’t view their Skill IQ itself, such as 150. For more information about getting the most out of skills analytics, please click here.
For Enterprise plan admins and team managers, there are additional analytics views available. Please check out Getting started with Advanced skills analytics and Getting started with Advanced channels analytics for more information about these features.
