Got questions?

Live sessions will start in October 2019, immediately after the release of new Activechat interface. 

You will be the first to get hands-on experience with the new interface and will get a detailed manual on new features of Activechat conversational platform. 


The only pre-requisites are the ability to read and some common sense. Activechat is aimed to be no-code chatbot development platform, and you do not need any technical background to use it or understand the course content. 

Sessions are held weekly, so that you have enough time to digest the info, get your questions answered and do your homework in between. 

Exact days and times will be determined by voting in the LIVE group, so that the schedule fits nicely into everyone’s timeline. 

Don’t worry – you will have complete access to the session recording and Q&A, and you will be able to get your questions answered throughout the whole week. 

If you own LIVE package, Activechat founders will be available to help you with 1:1 consultation anytime.

This course is not about getting the formal certificate, it’s about getting the right knowledge and hands-on experience. That’s why every session has a set of tasks to complete. 

It can be as simple as building a small bot with your new knowledge, or as complex as selling this bot to a client. Each task will be verified by Activechat founders to make sure you get the most out of your certification experience.


You get one year of FREE access to Activechat bot building platform with unlimited number of bots and users in LIVE package and 10 bots / 50,000 users in RECORDED package.

We are a product company with a small team, and we do not have resources to build custom bots for clients, but we get quite a few requests for it every single month.

That’s why we decided to share these requests (leads) with our certified chatbot developers. We see it as a “win-win-win” situation – you get customers to sell bots to, customers get developers they can trust, and we get platform users to run these bots.

We’ll be posting bot development requests to LIVE package owners first, and after one week – to everyone else.

You have to negotiate the scope of work and costs with each of these leads individually. 

We believe in the quality of our certification program, but if for any reason you are not satisfied with the course content, we will completely refund your purchase throughout 30 days from the start of your program, no questions asked. All you have to do is send us an email.

Stop googling and start selling because after the course you will become a real CHATBOT PRO!
