9 Free Salesforce Training Resources

By Christine Marshall

Since 1999, Salesforce has pioneered the cloud computing space – now the market leader in CRM with 22.9% of the market share! As a result, Salesforce has over 150,000 customers across the globe, all of whom need technical support from Salesforce professionals.

Luckily, there are many Salesforce training resources available for free. Salesforce has been on a mission to make technology skills more accessible by removing the traditional barriers to technology careers such as cost and complicated concepts. They are always looking for new opportunities to bring talent into the ecosystem and upskill people.

On top of what Salesforce themselves provide, there are even more free Salesforce training resources produced by the global Trailblazer community. Here are some of the best from Salesforce and the community…

1. Trailhead

It’s no surprise that Trailhead takes the top spot on this list! Trailhead is Salesforce’s free training site that has over 1,100+ modules, quizzes, and hands-on activities by linking a Salesforce Org “Trailhead Playground”. 

The whole platform is designed to deliver a gamified experience, making learning engaging and the content approachable. By leveraging Trailhead, Trailblazers have reached incredible achievements.

Trailhead has been the beacon in Salesforce’s mission to upskill professionals who are new to the industry (and introduce the next generation of “Trailblazers”).

2. Salesforce Certifications Days

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

Since these sessions are quick, 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! Sign up for a Certification Day here.

    I used Salesforce as a ticket master in a previous job. It's not that hard to learn. I wanted to take the whole course a couple of years ago, but nobody at would respond to me. I'm looking at finding 100% FREE resources to learn Salesforce now, but I'm not finding any. All the sites that claim they are "free" are absolutely NOT!! I'm beginning to think this is just another scam of some kind. Finding lots of liars claiming "free", but they are not. Finding that these sites/places/people aren't what they claim. Finding that these sites/places/people cannot be botherd with responding to inquiries. These things reek of scams.

    Hi Chester, We've listed plenty of free, reputable resources on this blog post. Your first port of call for free Salesforce training should always be Trailhead - this is 100% free. Many training providers have both free and paid options.
