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 that 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 online webinars guided by expert Salesforce instructors. The webinars are designed to help you prepare for your Salesforce certification and 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, where a Salesforce instructor will share their expertise, tips, and best practices. The sessions typically last five hours, with a short break halfway through, so they 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 practice exams
Think of Certification Days as a chance to ‘cram’ before your exam!
