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.
The Customer Success Foundations Aspireship is our second course, designed to prepare you for Customer Success roles in the SaaS industry. This Aspireship is ideal for aspiring (and current!) Customer Success Managers.
The Sales Management Aspireship is our first Advanced Aspireship, designed to help sales reps become great sales 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, your Final Assessment will be graded. If you pass, you'll earn a verifiable certificate and the opportunity to be added to the Aspireship Talent Network.
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, to review the notes, and to not rush or cram. Most grads finish within 2-4 weeks of sign up.
In the tech industry, 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, tech companies strongly prefer candidates with tech / SaaS experience. Aspireship is the fastest and most effective path to bridge the gap and get you hired.
While both careers are customer-facing and involve consulting with customers to find solutions to their most important business challenges, sales is all about acquiring new customers and performing against a quota. On the flip side, customer success is focused on building long-term relationships with customers and nurturing them to success.

Core to our mission and ethos has always been to democratize access to opportunity based on merit, and not a candidate’s ability to pay expensive tuition in order to improve their lives. In support of that mission, we pursue every opportunity to keep the costs of our programs as close to $0 as possible.
The primary way we’re able to do this is through the support of Hiring Partners in the Aspireship Talent Network, who pay to recruit candidates through the network. Candidates who choose to accept a job through the network have the option to receive a full refund on the cost of Aspireship Unlimited, or can choose to turn their $180 into a pay-it-forward scholarship to give free Unlimited access to another candidate.
