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!

After Thousands of Udemy Survey ratings for my courses, the students have spoken:

"Is the instructor knowledgeable about the topic?" 99.9% answered YES



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've attained 9 Salesforce Certifications along the way: Force Developer (retired), Salesforce Administrator, Salesforce Business Analyst, Salesforce Associate, Salesforce AI Associate, Salesforce Advanced Administrator, Salesforce Sales Cloud Consultant, Salesforce Service Cloud Consultant, Salesforce Platform App Builder.

Here is my recommended Salesforce Certification Path, for those of you just starting out, with no prior development experience.

1. Salesforce Certified Associate

2. Salesforce Certified AI Associate (course coming soon)

3. Salesforce Certified Administrator

4. Salesforce Business Analyst or Salesforce Platform App Builder

From here, depending on your desired route, if you wish to become a developer, I'd recommend you next take the Platform App Builder certification and then  Platform Developer 1.

Other routes would be that of a Consultant (Sales Cloud and/or Service Cloud) or Advanced Admin, or Architect.

For those of you with prior development experience, you can start at either Platform App Builder or Platform Developer I. Please note that it is always a good idea to at some point grow strong on the fundamentals of the platform to round out your understanding of Salesforce, such as attaining the Admin and/or Associate certifications.
