Just another morning at CBT Nuggets.
Outside, summer has been slow arriving at CBT Nuggets headquarters.
But inside, things are sizzling with new series, MicroNuggets, closed captioning, and more!
Closed Captioning Now Available
We are excited to introduce our Closed Captioned Top Video Series package. Currently, closed captioning is available for selected Cisco, Microsoft, Project Management, Linux, CompTIA, Ethical Hacker, Security and VMware series. Closed captioning will allow those who speak English as a second language and people with hearing impairments to more fully experience our training. We’re committed to providing English subtitles for our future series releases.

NuggetLOVE Donations Surpass $14,000
The NuggetLOVE program enjoyed a strong second month. On June 8, CBT Nuggets presented the Center Against Rape and Domestic Violence (CARDV) with a check for $7,312. CARDV is an Oregon non-profit that provides services to victims of rape and domestic violence. That check brought the two-month total of NuggetLOVE donations to more than $14,000.
The June NuggetLOVE charity is Relay for Life, which benefits the American Cancer Society. One of our own team members, Tyson, participated in a local relay. His team of 10 people took turns running or walking around a track for 18 consecutive hours!
Last month, we asked “How much time do you spend watching CBT Nuggets training in a typical day?” Most (62.5%) of those who answered like their training short and sweet –30 minutes or less per day!
This month, we want to know when you study. What time of day do you typically train?
