# What are the core courses?
Automation Pro I (opens new window): Start with this course, which focuses on the basics of Workato. Remember to take the exam once you feel confident. Once done, let your manager know so he or she can know the level you've achieved.
Automation Pro II (opens new window): This course builds upon Automation Pro I and proceeds with more advance topics. The journey is the same; take the exam and let your manager know.
There are also more specialized courses that address discrete use cases, and more general industry based concepts related to automation. These courses may offer badges for their completion.
