OnCourse Learning has been selected to the Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies for 2018, placing it in elite territory.

As a five-time honoree to the annual Inc. Magazine list, OnCourse Learning now joins the Inc. 5000 Hall of Fame.

“Each day, our company changes people’s lives through education,” said Patrick Sheahan, President and CEO of OnCourse Learning. “We have made important strides this year, and the Inc. 5000 honor is a testament to our continued growth. From expanded high-quality course content to a richer user experience to a stronger position across the healthcare continuum, we are helping learners succeed in their chosen professions or start new careers.”

OnCourse Learning is ranked No. 2,950 on this year’s list. The company is a national leader in professional education and compliance training solutions for the financial services, healthcare and real estate industries.

Over a three-year period judged by Inc. for the 2018 list, OnCourse Learning experienced growth of 138%.

In 2018, OnCourse Learning was honored by Training Industry Inc. with a spot on the Online Learning Library Top 20 Companies list, which recognizes the best global providers of corporate learning services and technologies. The company also surpassed 3 million alumni.

Big growth defines 2018 list

Companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 list have showcased staggering growth, with a three-year average of 538.2%, and a median rate of 171.8%. Inc. 5000 companies have accounted for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it is unparalleled recognition of years of hard work and sacrifice,” Inc. Magazine Editor in Chief James Ledbetter said. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”

The Inc. 5000 list, which began in 1982, has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success. The 2018 list is Inc. Magazine’s 37th annual ranking.

Winners also will be honored Oct. 17-19 at the Inc. 5000 Conference & Gala in San Antonio.
