Description

This Course and Instructor were recently featured in InfoWorld.

This course covers the Salesforce Platform and Cloud Computing. I cover the various Salesforce certification and career opportunities that are out there and help you chart your course to the cloud. 

I cover what cloud computing is, what Salesforce is, and the types of jobs available to you. I also give you tips on how to get resume building experience. This course is a starting point for you to chart your course to a well paying and satisfying cloud career. I conclude this course with recommended next steps and resources to get you on the fast track to certification, and ultimately, relentlessly pursued by recruiters.

The demand for Salesforce Developers, Administrators, Consultants, Architects, Business Analysts, Project Managers, etc. is immense. The Salesforce Platform is an attainable path to developing applications in the cloud, without code. No experience is required. You can do it!

Who this course is for:

  • This course is intended for absolute beginners. No programming experience or prior Salesforce knowledge is required. This course is intended for anyone who is interested in a career in the cloud.
  • Salesforce is a platform that many professionals administer and develop on every day without writing a single line of code, so this course is intended for non-coders desiring a career change.
  • Existing administrators and developers on the Salesforce Platform should not take this course. Additionally, those that are looking for tutorials and exercises on the Salesforce Platform should not take this course, because I only cover concepts, career paths, certification options and cloud computing in general.

I teach Salesforce, Zoom and Home Business Courses. 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, Zoom, Wordpress, and more.

I am currently creating a series of courses that teach you all of the fundamentals and specifics related to launching your own home business, make money online, and how to build your own brand while building applications and businesses on the Internet.

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, Salesforce Administrator, Salesforce Advanced Administrator, Salesforce Sales Cloud Consultant, Salesforce Service Cloud Consultant, and Salesforce Platform App Builder.

I am the founder of Mike Wheeler Media, LLC, where my mission is to Inspire, Equip and Train the masses on the Salesforce Platform. Feel free to connect with me through the various social profile links on my profile here.
