  • 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.

Salesforce Trainer and Cloud Career Coach - 6 Certifications

I teach Salesforce user, certification and AI / Artificial Intelligence courses because I am passionate about the platform, and the awesome things you can build quickly on it - including your career! There is an extreme shortage of Salesforce talent in the job market, and I am creating Salesforce Certification and User courses, so that you can get a good paying job in the cloud.

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

"Are you learning valuable information?" 99.6% answered YES

"Are the explanations of the concepts clear?" 99.8% answered YES

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

I have been building solutions on the Salesforce platform since 2008, and started my own certification journey in 2011. 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.

I use the Adobe Creative Cloud everyday, specifically working in Premiere Pro, After EffectsPhotoshop. I have obtained my Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) certification in Premiere Pro CC and am currently working towards certifications in Photoshop CC & After Effects CC as well.

I have been working full time in video production for over 4 years now and have gained valuable insights into the production pipeline & workflow. I am currently working for my father's company, Mike Wheeler Media LLC, as Chief Design Officer.

I hope to soon create Adobe courses of my own & teach all that I have come to learn while working in the production industry.
