Last week I was invited to present to a CIO Forum organised by the SAP Australian User Group. The puprose of the presentation was to discuss possible solutions to the SAP skill shortage in Australia. I discussed the different SAP skill sets which university students acquire. I put forward the idea that SAP TERP10 certification could be used a requirement for graduates seeking employment in the SAP field. Unfortunately none of the CIO’s had heard of TERP10 but I knew this would be the case. I came prepared by providing copies of the sample TERP10 exam and put forward the challenge that they should give the exam to some of their SAP business analysts and see how they go. A link to the exam can be found below.
TERP10 is a difficult course for students and only a few universities in the SAP University Alliances Progarm (UAP) have the ability or motivation to offer the training. At Victoria University we conduct the the training and make it available to students who are studying at a UAP university. The pass rate is usually about 70%.
Kenneth Schieffer provided a good blog about TERP10 and its content.
We need more companies to understand about the knowledge students gain through TERP10. So here is the challenge; download the sample exam and see how you go.
