Pathfinder Academy FAQ



What is the difference between Pathfinder Academy and Automation Anywhere University?


Pathfinder Academy is a new learning resource from Automation Anywhere University. Using hands-on learning and quick, digestible lessons, Pathfinder Academy helps you develop your intelligent automation career and equips you with essential skills for the future of work.

There are two types of Pathfinder Academy offerings:

  • Get specialized training for your role via our Career Quests. The four roles Pathfinder Academy supports are:
    • Pro Developer
    • Automation Leader
    • Citizen Developer
    • Business Analyst (Coming soon!)


  • Develop specific skill sets with Skill Boosters. Our first Skill Booster is focused on a HOT AI topic — check it out: Prompt Engineering for Automation Developers

Getting started is easy, visit Pathfinder Academy and launch the next chapter of your learning journey.

The Pathfinder Team is continuously working to expand the Academy's offerings. Expect new courses and resources to be consistently released over the next few quarters. If you encounter a course that sounds familiar from AAU, we recommend taking the Academy version to further elevate your skills.

Note there are no changes to Automation Anywhere University, including badges and certifications. For AAU-specific questions, visit the AAU FAQ.
