LinkedIn Learning


LinkedIn Learning Toolkit

Great careers don’t just happen; they’re developed through a series of learnings and experiences. We want to see you succeed and help you get there. That’s why we launched a program of LinkedIn Learning. This program gives you access to more than 8,000 courses that can help you discover, develop, and refine skills to help you reach your goal. You’ll have access to all of the courses online or on the LinkedIn Learning mobile app. You’ll even receive personalized course recommendations from LinkedIn.

Get started with LinkedIn Learning

How do I know if I have access to LinkedIn Learning? 

Please reach out to your training director to verify if you do have or if you should have access to LinkedIn Learning. Licenses are limited, your training director, supervisor, or manager can work with the Enterprise Development Team to help you obtain a license. You will receive an email from LinkedIn Learning to activate your account. 

How do I get a LinkedIn Learning license?

Fill out this form to get connected with Enterprise Talent Development (ETD) and request a LinkedIn Learning license. Filling out the form does not guarantee you will receive a license. An ETD representative will follow up with you on the status of your request. 

Set up your LinkedIn Learning account

  1. You will receive an email invitation to access LinkedIn Learning to activate your account. This email will come from directly from LinkedIn Learning, so be sure to check your spam folders if you do not find it in your inbox. Instructions for activating your LinkedIn Learning account will come to you via email directly from LinkedIn Learning.

  2. Visit LinkedIn Learning and login with your State of Minnesota email address. When you first log in, you have an option to connect your account with your personal LinkedIn account. Connecting your personal account allows you to share your class accomplishments with your network. You can still complete LIL courses without connecting to your personal account. Access this document with instructions on how to connect your personal LinkedIn profile to your LinkedIn Learning license. 

  3. After you log in, select your job title and any skills you’re interested in learning more about. Then let the learning begin!
