Linkedin Learning is one of the leading online learning platforms, an online community which merged Lynda.com with LinkedIn and then migrated into LinkedIn Learning in 2017. This learning community offers a wide range of courses in Business, Technology and Creative subjects. It is currently offering 17,000+ courses taught by industry experts and has a growing community of 700+ million users.
Some of the questions that may come to mind when considering its cost are; How much is LinkedIn Learning? Do they have monthly subscriptions? Does LinkedIn Learning offer free courses? If it’s not for me, can I get a refund?
Let’s dive straight in to help clarify some of these questions in this comprehensive LinkedIn Learning pricing guide.

LinkedIn Learning Costs: An Overview
LinkedIn Learning offers a few options for paying for its courses. You can pay for an individual course with pricing varying from $20 to $50 (including VAT) or alternatively sign up for a monthly subscription at $39.99 a month or an annual plan at $323.88 working out at $26.99 a month.
As well as individual plans, it offers pricing plans for teams or entire organizations which are personalized. Prices for this aren’t disclosed, so you would need to contact them to discuss.

Hey. I am Catherine and I have been working as a freelancer for many years now. In 2005, I graduated from a BA honours in Art & Design from BCU and then went onto complete a Master’s Degree in Teaching from UEL.

I hope that answers your questions, and are able to decide if LinkedIn Learning is right for you 🙂
Hello. I forgot that I subscribed for the one-month free trial. I was charged $239.98! Was that the correct price? I don’t remember subscribing for a one-payment annual fee! Even though the free month ended, is there any way I can get a refund?
Thanks for your message. Yes $239.98 is the correct amount as the annual plan is that one, which works out at $19.99 a month (please see attached image). As your free trial has ended, sadly you won’t be able to get a refund. I hope you are still able to enjoy LinkedIn Learning even though you weren’t planning on committing to an annual subscription.
Improving of my learner
I have been using LinkedIn Learning for the past 3 years as I received the premium from my university. I’ve connected my personal ID to my account and I’m graduating this month; would I be able to continue using the services?
Thanks for your message. It would be best for you to contact LinkedIn Learning directly, as they will be able to confirm if you can still use it once graduated.
Hello Catherine, I am a regular LinkedIn user, cancelled my premium around 3 m ago. Can you enlighten me, is LinkedIn learning part of the LinkedIn premium subscription? If I reinstate LinkedIn Premium @ $29.99 pm will I then have total access to LinkedIn learning without having to pay $24.99 pmonth for a year or 39.99 per month or will I pay 29.99 for premium and 24.99 for Learning?If I choose not to reinstate LIpremium subscription can I open LI learning subscription monthly or yearly just having regular LInkedIn set up or purchase courses independently?
Hey Conchita. Yes if you have a LinkedIn premium account then you will have full access to LinkedIn Learning. But as you said if you decide not to reinstate your premium account then you can register for a LinkedIn Learning subscription either monthly or yearly and some courses you can purchase individually. I hope that helps you and happy learning 🙂
Looks like the price has changed. The annual subscription (after the free 30 days) is now $24.99 x 12 ($299.88 billed annually) but the monthly charge is now $39.99/mo if you don’t want to pay for the entire year. So basically you must pay around $40/mo unless you want to spend $300 and get billed every year regardless of how much you are using it.
Hey Craig. Thanks so much for your message. I have updated the article with the new pricing plans. I hope you can decide which plan is best for you 🙂
Please if I start subscribing monthly for LinkedIn learning, for any course I will learn under my subscription do I need to pay for the courses again with certificate of completion or is it free learning and free certificate of completion?????
Please clearify me. Am confused
Hey Augustine. Thanks for your question. Yes once you start paying for a monthly subscription with LinkedIn learning you will have full access to 16,000+ courses and will receive certificates of completion when you successfully complete its courses. I hope that answers your question and happy learning 🙂
Looking for more information I found yours. Thank you very much.
I just wonder: If I suscribe for LinkedIn Learning, does it means that I will have LinkedIn Premium too? Because I’m looking for that information, but haven’t found it yet.
Someone told me that suscribing to LinkedIn Premium would give me access to Learning (I know I’m asking backwards), but I’m not sure. Would you happen to know that?
Thank you in advance.
