About Us

Powered by America's most future forward employers and community colleges to connect working learners to jobs and credentials.

On October 14, 2019, five community colleges and NISOD came together and agreed to "Blaze The Way Forward" For The 64.5M Working Learners and 30M Employers in the US and ensure that every community college learner gets into a job and that every company has the best talent to help it grow.

At the end of 2021, Unmudl's technology was ready for a large-scale pilot and that became a reality when Amanda Willard, Amazon's workforce strategist chose Unmudl.



Unmudl helps employers develop their workforce pipeline faster with skilled employees.



Unmudl connects working learners to low-cost, short-term training offered by America's Community College Network.



With Unmudl community colleges make the best possible use of their resources to maximize their enrollment and revenues with lesser costs.

Our Mission

Unmudl's mission is to provide learners, particularly working learners, with skill paths to learning and employment, while slashing time, cost, and uncertainty. Via Unmudl, every learner can get skills to go from Skills-to-Jobs on the shortest, most flexible, and affordable path possible.

Our Vision

In Unmudl's vision of the future, the high cost, rigidity, and uncertain reward of pursuing higher education is replaced with an economical, transparent, infinitely adjustable sequence of stints in which the employer, college, and learner are in constant communication about current needs, and the system can respond quickly to each.

Our Approach

At Unmudl we strongly believe that every working learner should be able to 1. Get Skills, 2. Get Creds, & 3. Get Hired. This three-step approach connects skill building to the credentials that are reflective of knowledge and practical expertise to the job roles that support our economy.  This continuous process starts with individual growth that drives community growth that exponentially impacts America's growth.
