Figs don't need much pruning once the framework is established and if you are mainly looking for main crop and not brebas (the early crop from overwintering buds that some varieties produce). We pruned ours to 3 or 4 main trunks and the just prune to open up the center for ease of picking and keep height manageable. You then also need to prune off root suckers each year. If you are trying to maximize brebas then you need a certain amount of renewal pruning to encourage new sprouts to grow each season. I recommend looking at the YouTube video about how to prune figs for brebas that was made in British Columbia.
