How to Determine Your Experience Level

Novice users: Are you new or have limited experience working with PowerSchool products? Generally, novice-level courses are for users that rely on clear step-by-step instructions to accomplish a task.

Intermediate users: Do you work within PowerSchool SIS or other PowerSchool products on a regular basis? Generally, an intermediate user has a good understanding of the organization and layout of a PowerSchool product and does not need to rely on instructions to accomplish a task.

Advanced users: Have you spent several years accumulating relevant experience and proficiency in a PowerSchool product? An advanced user knows a PowerSchool product intuitively and is ready to customize PowerSchool for their district's needs. The advanced user courses are designed to help users expand their PowerSchool product knowledge beyond the interface.
