You will learn what the requirements for this certification are
Understand the Industry Knowledge that is Required to Consult on the Platform
Become Familiar with some Implementation Strategies
Learn how to take your learning and career further


  • Some familiarity with Salesforce is helpful
  • To ultimately pass any of the Consultant Certifications from Salesforce (Marketing, Sales and Service) you have to have attained the Administrator Certification - but this is an introductory and informational free course to help you see the big picture and path of getting to where you can consult on the Salesforce Platform, so dive in and get started. I will show you what path to take if you are either brand new or if you already have the admin certification.
  • A burning desire to change your life and improve your career outlook
  • A firmly held belief that there has to be a better and easier way to build awesome things
  • A willingness to suspect, and perhaps even believe to your core that you too can make good income and solve complex problems with clicks instead of code. If you are jaded by the anyone can code mantra, then come on in here.


This course covers the Industry Knowledge and key concepts you need to understand in order to launch a Consulting Career in Salesforce, or to provide further context and background in pursuing any of the Salesforce Consultant Certifications.

I introduce you to the Sales Cloud Consultant Certification, the Exam Guide, and show you how to sign up for a free Salesforce Trailhead Account.

I also go into the Industry Knowledge and background information that you'll need to learn and understand in order to serve well as a consultant and to also pass that Knowledge Area's questions on the full exam.

I have taught over 60,000 students on the Salesforce Platform and my mission is to Train, Inspire and Equip the Masses on the Salesforce Platform.

I teach Salesforce.

I am passionate about helping you become a 'Creator in a Consumption World'

I gravitate towards tools and tech that empowers the non-technical to build and create amazing things online.

That is why I was drawn to amazing tools and platforms, such as Salesforce, AWS, Wordpress and more.

Before discovering Salesforce, I worked as a Technical Writer, Trainer, and built blogs using Wordpress. Once I found Salesforce, I saw it as the quickest path to building world-class web and mobile applications for businesses and consumers. I've attained 6 Salesforce Certifications along the way: Salesforce Developer (retired), Salesforce Administrator, Salesforce Advanced Administrator, Salesforce Sales Cloud Consultant, Salesforce Service Cloud Consultant, and Salesforce Platform App Builder.
