As part of the customer onboarding process, new users are invited to enroll in training programs.

This program and certification process is divided into three learning paths. Initially, you will be enrolled in the basic, entry-level course, Level 1. Essentials. After you complete this course, you can progress to Level 2. Professional, and finally, Level 3. Expert. Each path progresses in complexity and builds on knowledge gained in the previous course. The total certification path length is approximately 7.5 hours.
