Get Started with Pardot

  1. Create an Account at Trailhead

    Before you can take your first step on a Trailhead trail, module, or project, you first need to create an account. This is your home base for completing challenges, earning badges and tracking your progress. 

  2. Learn Pardot Lightning App Basics (and earn your first badge!)

    This is the perfect module to kick-off your Pardot journey. This module will run you through the basics of Pardot as well as give you a great baseline knowledge. Plus, once you complete all three units in the module you’ll earn your first badge and elevate your Trailblazer rank to Hiker.
