TrueLearn, a company that helps physicians prepare for licensure exams, has moved its headquarters from Pittburgh to the town of Mooresville north of Charlotte, where it plans to create 44 well-paying jobs and spend about $435,000 to expand its services.
“After a great run in Pittsburgh, we are thrilled to move our headquarters to the Charlotte, N.C., area as the company enters into a new phase in its growth cycle, and we are grateful for the support we have received from the community,” said Dr. Joshua Courtney, TrueLearn’s founder and chief executive officer.
TrueLearn works with many of the leading medical schools and residency programs in the country to help young physicians achieve board certification in various specialties. The company is extending its services to new fields within health care and plans to invest $435,000 over five years in Mooresville.
“North Carolina is uniquely suited for innovative, knowledge-based companies like TrueLearn, and our workforce is ready to fill these technology and data science jobs,” Gov. Roy Cooper said.
TrueLearn is a leader in online test preparation, offering learning tools designed to prepare physicians and health care professionals for their licensure exams. The company uses predictive models that adapt to the individual to advance learning, enhance retention and improve performance.
“Every day, we have the unique opportunity to influence the lives of thousands of young physicians in their efforts to outperform on some of the most high-stakes licensure exams on the planet,” company CEO Courtney said. “To achieve this, we work with some of the best minds in the education technology community.”
State Commerce Secretary Anthony M. Copeland said North Carolina’s “higher education system and competitive technology and health care industries attracted TrueLearn to North Carolina.”
A performance-based grant of $50,000 from the One North Carolina Fund is supporting TrueLearn’s move to Iredell County. The One NC Fund provides financial assistance to local governments to help attract economic investment and to create jobs. Companies receive no money upfront and must meet job creation and capital investment targets to qualify for payment. All One NC grants require a matching grant from local governments.
“I’m proud to welcome TrueLearn to Iredell County,” said state Sen. David L. Curtis. “These are great jobs, and I know our workers are ready for the challenge.”
Senior Business Recruitment Manager Garrett Wyckoff of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina supported this project in partnership with the North Carolina Department of Commerce, the state General Assembly, the North Carolina Community College System, the town of Mooresville, Iredell County and the Mooresville South Iredell Economic Development Corporation.
