|Student Certification Academy Delta Training For Certified Professors||This workshop is exclusive to full-time faculty/staff at University Alliances member schools who have successfully passed and received the TERP10 certification from SAP, and plan to teach a Student Certification Academy on campus in 2012. The intent of the workshop is to provide information on the upcoming changes to the TERP10 certification course and exam as well as addressing issues that are designed at improving pass rates for SAP University Alliances students. The four day workshop involves discussions and hands-on exercises from the new version of the TERP10 certification course. The presenters also share their best practices as well as provide supplemental materials that have proven successful. Attendees are expected to complete a brief survey upon registering for the workshop to help narrow the focus of the material presented. There is significant emphasis on techniques aimed at improving pass rates and the initial feedback from this survey is important in customizing content towards this objective.||
