Frequently Asked Questions
An Aspireship is a new kind of online training program designed as a bridge to advance you to a new step in your career. Whether you’re just starting your career, looking to level up to a more senior position or are wanting to make a move from another industry or job type, an Aspireship can help you get there.
The SaaS Sales Foundations Aspireship is our flagship course, which we call an “Aspireship”, designed to teach you how to be successful in SaaS sales. This Aspireship is ideal for aspiring (and even current!) SaaS SDRs, BDRs, Account Executives and Account Managers. We’ll be adding more Aspireships soon!
Aspireships are 100% online training programs, taught by current and former Founders, CEOs, VPs, Directors and training experts at fast-growth SaaS companies. Our curriculum is broken down into three main areas:
- Live and On-Demand expert video interviews
- Quizzes and Assessments
- Virtual Job Simulations
The curriculum can be completed on-demand, on your schedule. Once you fully complete the Aspireship, our team will review your assessment to determine if you have scored in the top 10%, earning you the opportunity to become certified and added to the Aspireship Talent Network.
The day you sign up for Aspireship, your 30 day access begins. Throughout your 30 day access, we will send you friendly encouragement to keep going and reminders about how much time you have left.
We’ve designed the learning process to be completed in as little as 5 hours per week for 4 weeks or less. We encourage everyone to take notes, review the notes and not to rush or cram. Most grads finish within 2-4 weeks of sign up.
In SaaS specifically, you need to understand the most common business models, terminology and industry best practices to maximize your chances of landing a new role and succeeding on the job. Last but not least, SaaS companies strongly prefer candidates with SaaS experience. Aspireship is the fastest and most effective path to bridge the gap and get you hired.
Aspireship is 100% tuition free for motivated candidates who put in the work to graduate within 30 days of signing up. Candidates who do not complete within 30 days have the option to extend access through Aspireship Pro, which gives you ongoing access to SaaS Sales Foundations and the Aspireship Video Library, filled with 50+ hours of additional content from Aspireship Live! and beyond.
That is entirely up to you.
Many graduates complete the SaaS Sales Foundations Aspireship during the free access period, while others may take up to several months to complete.
Our end goal is to help you find a job you love at an innovative tech company, whether or not you are ready to upgrade your subscription to Aspireship Pro for ongoing learning.
That said, we don’t want you to rush for the sake of beating the clock and sacrifice your ability to succeed. You know your learning style and schedule better than anyone. Do what’s right for you, and we’ll be here to support you along the way.
We believe in providing opportunity to anyone who is willing to put in the work, regardless of their ability to pay.
