Salesforce Certification Days: Free Preparation Webinars with Trailhead

By Christine Marshall

Salesforce certifications are a hot topic; it’s essential to earn at least a few to stand out from the crowd and there are lots to choose from! However, certifications are notoriously hard and require an in-depth understanding of the platform. The good news is, there’s yet another way to prepare for your exam: Salesforce Certification Days.

Read on to learn more about what Salesforce Certification Days are, how you can sign up and how to make the most of them.

What are Salesforce Certification Days?

Salesforce Certification Days are free, half day webinars, led by expert Salesforce instructors. The webinars will cover the main objectives of the exam, focusing on the highest weighted areas.

Salesforce Certification Days are available in several different regions and at different time slots.

There may not always be a session in your region so it’s important to keep an eye out for when these events become available. They are super popular and slots are limited; it’s advisable to sign up early to avoid disappointment!
On the day, you’ll join a virtual webinar using GoToWebinar, where a Salesforce instructor will share their expertise, tips, and best practices. The sessions typically last 3 – 3 ½ hours, with a short break half way, so are very fast paced. You’ll need to stay focused the whole time to make the most of it.

Since these sessions are rapid, they are best suited to people who have already done the majority of preparation for the exam. You’ll get the most benefits from the webinar if you’ve already:

  • Reviewed the exam guide
  • Completed any relevant Trailhead trails and projects
  • Used other study resources
  • Completed mock exams

Think of Certification Days as a chance to “cram” before your exam!

I recommend you book your exam as soon as you receive the discount code, while the webinar is fresh in your mind.

In addition to swotting up ready to crush your certification goals, you’ll also receive a discount code for $40 off ANY $200 exam!

How can I sign up for Salesforce Certification Days?

Head over to our new Salesforce Events page or Salesforce Certification Days on Trailhead to see what events are currently available. Click “Register” next to the Certification Day you want to join and you’ll be directed to the class registration page where you’ll enter your details.

Upon registration you’ll receive an email with your login details, as well as 3 days before your webinar.


  • The sessions are not recorded
  • Slides will not be shared
  • There is no additional study collateral e.g. handouts, guides or mock exams
  • Not all exam objectives will be covered
  • Further study/preparation using other resources is essential
  • You will not be on video
  • Keep up to date and ask question via the Certification Days Community Group


Salesforce Certification Days are a great free resource to prepare for your exam. You can expect to learn a lot in a short amount of time, with top tips and best practices that will help you successfully pass your chosen certification. Make the most of the experience by preparing well in advance.

    Its worth mentioning that you don't have to sign up in your own region. I've attended in other time zones that better fit my schedule. The description will tell you what language the course will be presented in so you can be sure to select a language you understand. The coupon code will still work regardless of region.

    Hi, In my experience the instructor gave us the code at the end of the session. Otherwise you might receive an email? If you haven't had anything you can follow up with them on the Certifications group page. Christine

    Hi, These certification days are super popular and fill up very quickly! Notifications are not sent when new slots are released. Best thing to do is follow the Trailblazer Group mentioned in the post and set your email notifications to Daily/Every Post. Best, Christine
