Learn our products, on your terms.
Why the Academy?
The PFAcademy teaches you everything you need to know to become proficient in using our software. Learn the fundamentals of our software and continue on to earn manufacturer accredited certifications to carry forward into your chosen career path.
How does it work?
The self paced courses are specifically designed to learn at your own pace, as and when it suits you and without the pressure of costly subscriptions. There are three course levels for each software product – Foundation(100), Intermediate(200) and Advanced(300). Each course level consists of 3 work along videos, each with an accompanying test which you must complete before you progress. If you fail the test, no need to worry, just go back and retake it, either immediately or at a later date if you prefer. Your progress is recorded at all times and stored in your PFUser account for you to log back in at a later date and complete then.
How much does it cost?
Absolutely nothing! It is completely free to sign up for a PFUser account, and we do not charge anything for the Foundation(100), Intermediate(200) and Advanced(300) Courses.
