13 of the best training website examples to inspire your own design

Great training provider websites have a lot in common – they’re easy to navigate, they communicate what they offer clearly and succinctly, they’re accessible, and it’s easy for learners to find and book a spot on their courses.

But knowing the key features and seeing great sites are two different things. That’s why we’ve selected thirteen fantastic training website examples to give you some inspiration that you can use if you’re designing a new training website, or looking at ways to improve your current website.

Let’s get started.

1. Myopain Seminars

What we love:

The training provider offers a wide range of courses, making it easy for users to filter through different types. Their latest course, ‘Dry Needling’, is prominently featured alongside the ‘Browse Upcoming Courses’, option. 

This design allows the provider to highlight specific courses while still catering to users who may not be interested in the promoted course but want to see what else is available.

2. Legalwise Seminars

What we love:

  • Eye catching color scheme
  • Promoted discounts
  • Smart audience segmentation

Legalwise Seminars is an Australian leader in providing high-quality, legally related continuing professional development. This value proposition is clearly communicated in the hero section of their homepage, making it easy for users to navigate to their desired area of the website.

Scrolling further down the homepage, a user can choose to view the entire upcoming course schedule or download a guide that showcases the upcoming webinars for the next few months. Visually, the use of blue tones across the site aligns with the legal industry’s traditional color, promoting a sense of trust and reliability.

To encourage users to sign up for a training session they are interested in today rather than later, Legalwise has a discount banner that draws the eye. The discount offering is placed in a way that is neither overwhelming nor intrusive, and by stating that the offer expires on May 10, 2024, they subtly nudge visitors to register before then to secure the discount.

3. Frank Capability

What we love:

  • Clean design

  • Rich course information 
  • Effective registration process to ensure learners only sign up for courses they are suited to

Big Nerd Ranch is a web & mobile app development agency that offers expert training and services, with their training centered on leveling up new hires or an organization’s existing team. When a user lands on their site, they can quickly decipher what Big Nerd Ranch offers and navigate to the training area of their website. The training section is transparently named so it is clear whom the company serves with their training.

When a user navigates to the corporate training overview page, they will find information about what makes Big Nerd Ranch stand out, why it is the company they should choose, and information on the types of training and individual courses they offer.

On the individual course page, users can get all the information they need about the course. Interestingly, however, they cannot book their spot straight away. This is intentional. As the company offers specialist courses, it is important that learners have the required aptitude to carry out the course. Therefore, they need to speak to a member of the Big Nerd Ranch team to ensure they are a good fit for their chosen course.

12. Stay Upright

What we love:

  • Clear navigation that allows users to quickly find courses in their location
  • Effective SEO practices in place

Once a user selects a state, they can further refine their search by clicking on an option that best suits their needs, leading them to relevant information about the individual course. Stay Upright also excels at informing users about the requirements for obtaining their motorcycle license without directing them to another page. This helps to reduce the bounce rate and keeps users close to the point of purchase while providing valuable information.

From a search engine perspective, providing this information directly on the page will help it rank well in search engines, particularly for terms like ‘How do I get my motorcycle license in Victoria?’ This helps bring relevant organic traffic to the site.

13. SoftEd

What we love:

  • Descriptive call-to-actions

The second button is for individuals, guiding them to a page that provides information on the different career areas for which SoftEd offers courses.

The SoftEd website is an excellent example of how training providers can set up their websites to cater to different types of learners by offering structured pathways on their homepage, without diluting their overall value proposition.

What do great training websites all have in common?

As you can probably tell, there are a few commonalities that all of these training websites have in common, mainly:

  • Visitors can easily find the courses the provider offers. 
  • Visitors can become customers within a few clicks
  • It’s clear to users within a few seconds of landing on the website what the provider offers
  • A straightforward checkout process.

Here’s a more in-depth look at them:

Visitors can quickly find courses

Great training providers don’t make visitors click around on different areas of their website to find their courses. Many training providers will have a “Browse Upcoming Courses” call-to-action button on the hero section of their homepage, or a “Courses” or some variation, button in their top navigation.

Visitors can become a customer within a few clicks

One thing you’ll notice with all of the websites we’ve looked at is that they make it very easy for a visitor entering the site to sign up for a course. The successful click flow that these websites capture typically looks like this: Homepage → CTA to view courses within the header of the homepage → CTA leads to a course overview page → Visitor can then click on the individual course leading to a landing page → Visitor can request more information or sign up. Importantly, the visitor can complete this sign-up process in 5 steps or less.

Visitors can quickly understand what the training provider offers

The best training websites communicate the types of courses and training they offer, don’t waste time with convoluted explanations, and effectively tell their brand’s story. This can be as simple as having a mission statement/USP on the header of their homepage, or having more in-depth company overview section that’s easy to navigate to.

They offer a frictionless checkout experience

More visitors will turn into course sign-ups if your checkout experience is straightforward. There are many checkout best practices you should follow, including not having too many fields in the form, autofill enabled to remember visitor details, offering multiple payment options to accommodate different preferences, and provide a clear summary of the course costs and fees before the final submission.
