Community:PaxLair/Education and Training

PaxLair Education and Training is an important aspect to the town, its citizens, and its visitors. There are several programs to help people learn about PaxLair and also become familiar with how to live within the realm. Some classes are fairly basic while others are more advanced. PaxLair does not and cannot provide all desired education and training. There are additional means and methods to learn things through community-wide education and training. There is also a potential Education and Training Consortium that helps integrate schools, academies, and universities throughout New Britannia.

History[edit]

PaxLair Education and Training has its conceptual beginnings from Old Britannia where PaxLair had a classroom to teach magery and the finer points of combat. More training opportunities grew over time, particularly to help new citizens in Old Britannia. These ideas carry forward to New Britannia.

PaxLair's interest to become part of a larger consortium of education and training institutions stemmed from initial discussions with others of the community in April 2013.
