Blended Learning

The ProScan Pathfinder Certification is a combination of online (asynchronous content) and live/instructor-led training. Your manual will closely follow the PDP eCampus content and prepare you for interacting with your trainer. We encourage you to use a printed-out version of this manual to write notes and keep track of your learning. Some examples on the following pages are from your ProScan reports. If you are reading this manual online, we have also embedded numerous links that provide additional web content. These same links are in the PDP eCampus course.

NOTE: On each lesson and topic in this course, you will see the “Mark Complete” button activate after you have viewed the required content.
