Each time I pass a Salesforce certification, I try to share some tips, lessons learned, new perspectives, and what I did to help others who might be considering the same path.
I’ve got an opinion about #Salesforce certifications!
A few of them actually.
I compiled all the blog posts and LinkedIn posts I’ve written after passing a certification.
After passing my Advanced Admin cert, I made the recommendation to plan on studying 50-100 hours on top of everything to pass the first admin cert.
For my 6th certification, Deployment Lifecycle and Deployment Designer, I studied for about an hour in total and suggested that experience is better preparation than studying.
Now I’m looking to take the Platform Developer 1 cert next. There will definitely be studying.
That will be my 7th cert when I get it, and one of my best friends and colleagues, Ben Fuller is still on #1. Half of what I know about Salesforce, I learned from him though, including a lot of what was tested in my last certification around best practices for deployments.
Here’s the point: there are many different paths in a Salesforce career. I encourage everyone in the Salesforce Ohana to keep learning, keep growing, and pass it forward in whatever way is right for you.
