Need some advice. I have an new Jr Admin joining me to help with some day to day tasks. I really want them to get up to speed on Advanced PDF templates. I knew HTML / CSS / Javascript before taking this job; however, they do not. Anyone highly recommend any online courses that transition well into Advanced PDF Templates? We have a LCS pass so I am going to have them work on those courses also.

Advanced PDF is based on the TWO engines. First engine ((Freemarker) converts XML into pure HTML/XML. I use that engine very often to create portlet, excel files (xml), integration data... Second engine is BFO which convert result of Freemarker XML into PDF You can not find any help/tutorial for these engines (renders) inside of NetSuite help. You have to search on the official site for Freemarker and BFO

Thanks @Zoran R-DATAGRAM I will include these sites in the training docs. Do you recommend any training courses outside of their documentation?
