The recommended education is a valuable way to prepare for the certification exam. The education cannot provide the experience needed to succeed on the exam, and completion of recommended education will not guarantee success on the exam.
The education recommended is not required for every candidate. Those with strong existing skills in components of PureFlex may not require courses related to those skills.
There are no charge online courses that provide easily accessed education at the convenience of the candidate. There is a three day fee based classroom class which may be attractive to those who prefer the traditional class room environment and who's schedule matches with the class schedule., Additional class room offerings will be added as they become available.
