Gaining a certification (or two, or three, or ten!) should be on every Salesforce professional’s to-do list. Getting certified is a great way to demonstrate your expertise and is often a requirement for landing a job in the Salesforce ecosystem. Controversially, I also think it’s quite fun… feel free to disagree – I’m a nerd after all!
It comes at a cost though; most certification exams cost $200, while others are $400. In good news, Salesforce often offers ways to get a discount on exams, you just need to know where to look! To help get you started, I’ve put together a list of every current Salesforce certification voucher I have found, as well as a few other ways you might be able to nab yourself a discount.
Certification Celebration: July 1 – September 30, 2022
If you earn your first Salesforce certification between July 1 and September 30, 2022, you’ll receive a free $200 certification voucher from Salesforce! This voucher can be used by you or you can give it to a fellow Trailblazer.
Be sure to check out the full T&C’s as this offer is only valid for qualifying individuals.
Salesforce Certification Days: $40 Discount
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. After participating in a Certification Day, you’ll receive a code for a $40 discount off any $200 exam.
Keep an eye on Trailhead Quests for details of the latest quests… there will often be at least one quest where you could win a certification voucher.
Quests change monthly, so if you’re not successful this month, you can always try again next month!
Trailblazer User Groups and Community Events
Occasionally, your local Community Group may have Salesforce certification vouchers to giveaway or offer as prizes. Please note that Community Groups are not entitled to any certification vouchers and cannot request them – so please do not ask your local Group Leaders for them! If vouchers are available, it is done at random and at Salesforce’s discretion.
The same applies to community events (Dreamin’ Events). As well as being a lot of fun and a great way to network, there are often competitions, prizes, and giveaways.
Keep checking in… we’ll add more voucher codes and ways to grab a certification voucher as we find them. Can you think of any other ways to get a Salesforce certification voucher? Let us know in the comments!
