TL;DR: Add skills to your résumé with the Complete Salesforce Trailhead 2020: From Zero to Hero 7-Course bundle for $25, a 91% savings as of Aug. 20.
Chances are if your current job doesn’t require Salesforce skills, your next job will. And this is a problem because American businesses don’t train their employees to use it, which leads to a lot of confusion and potentially costly mistakes. With its widespread popularity and use amongst businesses, you’d expect colleges and universities to work Salesforce into the curriculum somewhere, but nope. It’s very telling of America’s skills gap.
Fortunately, there are online courses you can take to not only familiarize yourself with Salesforce but actually earn credentials that grow your career – like this Complete Salesforce Trailhead 2020 From Zero to Hero Bundle.
Upon signing up, you’ll immediately get lifetime access to seven courses and 53 hours of content from platform basics to advanced Salesforce content. You’ll embark on the Salesforce Trailhead, which is a learning experience platform that helps you kickstart your career in the Salesforce ecosystem in an enjoyable way, starting with the Admin Beginner Trail. Here, you’ll learn the very basics of Salesforce, understand how to navigate it, and take on some challenges and quizzes along the way.
Next up, you’ll tackle the Admin Intermediate and Admin Advanced Trails, where you’ll explore building processes, data security, and more, until you’ve reached all-star status. Then, before heading down the Developer Trails, you’ll tackle a quick Declarative Lookup Rollup Summary, which will show you why and when to use DLRS in Salesforce. Then, finally, you’ll take the Developer Beginner Trail, then the Intermediate Trail, all the way to the Developing AppExchange App Trail, where you’ll roll up your sleeves, develop, package, and test your first AppExchange app.
The training is led by Jimmy Tanzil, a Salesforce Certified Application Architect, Developer, and Admin with over two decades of experience in the IT field. While Salesforce can be a bit confusing for the novice user, his instructor rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars, in-depth knowledge of the application, and many positive student reviews should give you the confidence you need to succeed. And like Tanzil says time and again, a little practice goes a long way.
Regularly, this training costs $299, but you can sign up for just $25 and go from Salesforce zero to a certified hero.
