In Fire Emblem: Three Houses, you're the professor. But that doesn't mean your own education isn't important. In real life, most teachers need time for their own studies and self-development, and the world of Fire Emblem is no different. Ensuring that Byleth has their pick of potential classes late in the game means paying attention to the other teachers around the monastery. Weapons skills are easy to practice in battle, but you can't level up things like reason, faith, riding, or flying skills unless you're already certified for the associated classes--and you need Faculty Training in order to do that.

Early on, it's a better use of your activity points to invest in those skills so you can, say, become certified as a Pegasus Knight and continue practicing your flying from there. Here's who can teach you the aforementioned skills:

  • Flying: Manuela, Seteth
  • Riding: Jeralt, Hanneman, Gilbert
  • Faith: Rhea, Manuela
  • Reason: Hanneman, Rhea
  • Heavy Armor: Alois, Gilbert

And here's a list of what all the teachers at Garreg Mach Monastery can teach you:

  • Rhea: Sword, Brawl, Reason, Faith
  • Seteth: Sword, Lance, Axe, Authority, Flying
  • Manuela: Sword, Faith, Flying
  • Hanneman: Bow, Reason, Riding
  • Catherine: Sword, Brawl
  • Jeralt: Lance, Authority, Riding
  • Alois: Axe, Brawl, Heavy Armor
  • Shamir: Lance, Bow
  • Gilbert: Lance, Axe, Heavy Armor, Riding

Later on in the story, you'll open up more avenues to teach your protagonist skills, but we'll keep that a mystery for anyone just starting out.
