The Vault Academy general editing program will introduce you to the basics of editing and allow you to practice in a relaxed environment at your own pace with no deadlines. The program also provides opportunities to meet other editors and experience each part of the community as you progress.

Lessons are brief, show some examples of the content, and sometimes end with a short quiz or task to accomplish. When all the lessons are complete, graduates will have a good foundation of knowledge and solid support system to help them succeed into the future.

After all lessons are complete, mentees will take an overview test and then be awarded a diploma and a place of honor among their peers in the esteemed Vault Academy Graduation Hall.

My user name is Kdarrow, or Kate, and I am excited to help facilitate your progress through the program. I serve as an administrator here at Nukapedia and second in command in the Vault Academy. I have a good deal of experience editing across Fandom and love it, but my number one interest is working with and helping new editors learn, develop a good foundation of knowledge, and gain confidence.

My level of interaction during your progress is completely up to you. The entire program can be done on your own, you can ask me questions as needed, we can complete the lessons together, or anything in between. We can chat via my talk page or through the Dataminer or Nukapedia Discord (kdarrow#2077). Please direct message or ping me anytime and know that you can feel comfortable asking me any type or number of questions. I am here to support you and I am happy for the opportunity.

So without further ado, you will find all the lessons below if you would like to dive in or just take a look. In any case, on behalf of myself and the Vault Academy, welcome!
