The Pineapple Academy Experience


See our Pineapple Path to Learning for an overview of what you or your organization can expect when training with Pineapple Academy.

Step 1: Video Based Training

Included with All Subscription Plans


Watch and learn what you need to know in 5 minutes or less on any device! Each video course is informative and engaging, featuring demonstrations and discussions by industry experts.

Step 2: Knowledge Check

Included with All Subscription Plans


Following each video is a short quiz that you must pass to move forward. For incorrect answers, you will be provided additional attempts assisted by a brief video playback of that section.

Step 3: Competency Checks

Included only with the Business Plan


Once a team member has completed a set of courses, they are eligible to participate in a skills demonstration witnessed by a Pineapple Mentor at your location. To ensure every skill is properly demonstrated, the requirements of each competency check are outlined in a unique checklist provided to the Mentor.

Step 4: Pineapple Academy Certification

Included only with the Business Plan


Upon successful completion of the courses and competency checks in each training series, team members are qualified to receive a Pineapple Academy Certificate. Each certificate has a unique, verifiable code and electronic record of completion to indicate that the team member is now Pineapple Academy Certified.
