Who is Pathfinder Academy for?
Pathfinder Academy is for automation teams of every size and roles at every level:
- Automation leads can upskill both themselves and their team members as they work to grow their automation program.
- Pro developers can boost productivity by learning to create, install, deploy, and maintain masterful automations of complex processes.
- Citizen developers can drive efficiencies by learning to identify prime automation opportunities and then rapidly build them.

Career Quests vs Skill Boosters: What’s the difference?
In Pathfinder Academy, you’ll find two distinct tracks: Career Quests and Skill Boosters.
Career Quests are clear paths with lessons that build on each other. These are meant to track with specific roles within the automation team to help them develop expertise and expand their knowledge and skills. These roles include:
- Pro Developer
- Automation Leader
- Citizen Developer
- Business Analyst (coming soon!)
Skill Boosters focus on specific skills and are meant to help team members close skill gaps or learn how to use new or advanced technologies or methodologies. These do not need to be completed in any certain order.
