The clinic is designed for beginners and experienced users of Pyware. For those with little or no experience, learn the fundamentals of using the Pyware software and basics of drill design techniques. For those who already know the basic of Pyware, the clinic expands upon the ins and outs of the software, and gain advice writing one’s own drill with the aid of a clinician.
