Corona Academy is an educational program for CGI tutors, instructors, lecturers and power-users who would like to improve their rendering skills and get to know everything about Corona Renderer.
All those who successfully complete the Corona Academy will become Primary Certified Instructors, able to organize and charge for their own authorized “Corona Renderer Educational Courses” and certify other instructors, schools and regular users.

However, Primary Certified Instructors will also be able to organize and charge for “Corona Renderer Educational Courses” for attendees who will become Certified Instructors. Only Primary Certified Instructors can run courses that give Certified Instructor status, because only Primary Certified Instructors will gain training directly from Corona Academy.
Certified Instructors can organize and charge for their own authorized “Corona Renderer Educational Courses” for other Corona Renderer users, and all those who pass these courses will become Certified Users.
Certified Users can use that qualification to confirm their skills with prospective clients and employers, but cannot teach authorized courses. This is illustrated in the diagram below:
A summarization of main differences between each certification levels is shown in a table below:
|Primary Certified Instructor||Certified Instructor||Certified User|
|Ability to certify users|
|Ability to certify instructors|
Certification as an instructor is valid for 2 years, and would then need to be renewed – this is to ensure that all Primary Certified Instructors and Certified Instructors are professionals who have kept fully up-to-date with all changes in Corona Renderer. All levels of Certified Instructors will pay a 10% share from revenues derived from their courses to Render Legion.
