Our philosophy

At the core of every thriving society is one irrefutable truth: people have to learn.

Whether you’re working as a welder, or working with at-risk youth, the common thread is a need to address problems through knowledge. Trifoia’s mission is to inject confidence into the knowledge-building process. We inspire learners to use new tools, both to benefit themselves and to make a difference in their communities.

With all the noise around us, the issues that businesses and organizations face are so complex that it can be easy to lose track of the core problems they’re trying to address. All of Trifoia’s work starts with a focus on the problem. Then, we tap our knowledge, skills, and technological capabilities to create engaging training solutions. We provide value through the confidence we build in learners, by teaching, inquiring and sharing.

We’re called Trifoia because our work lies at the intersection of three foundational principles:

Education. Training. Inspiration.

Education is about knowledge, training is about skill development, and inspiration is about enabling growth through confidence. That’s the Trifoia way.

Trifoia’s commitment to inclusive learning

Accessible learning has been at the heart of Trifoia’s work for nearly a quarter-century. We know we can’t accomplish that mission without taking every learners’ unique experiences into account. Diversity and equity are core values at Trifoia: We embrace each other’s differences, while striving to include all perspectives, both in our products and within our organization.


Trifoia’s online trainings are nationally recognized for their emphasis on learning outcomes, rich use of media, and contributions to research in human development. From the U.S. Small Business Administration to the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts, here’s a sampling of awards we’ve earned for our work.
