How does it work?

Salesforce is the number 1 CRM platform that's bringing artificial intelligence to everyone. So we thought we'd better build this course with them. Over a 6 week period, you'll learn hands-on skills in a live Salesforce environment. You will set up a whole company through Salesforce, and receive expert guidance and support from mentors at leading industry companies.

The best part? When you finish the course, you’ll have the opportunity to take the exam and become a certified Salesforce Administrator.


Who is the course for?
