Lovehoney supports the Fifty Shades product line with free e-Learning available at Williams Trading University (WTU). WTU is available exclusively to existing and new Williams Trading Co. accounts. Online courses are available 24 hours/7 days per week accessed with a login account. Each course offers product benefits and features as well as a seminar that explains its importance to a customer, their needs and well-being. More than 24,000 course certifications have been completed across the domestic U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.
Upon completing a course, the user takes a quiz certifying their newfound knowledge and is rewarded with a downloadable certificate.
