“I do believe certifications hold added value. It’s not just the certification that matters. The journey that gets you to that point is also important, and it shows you have willingness to learn”.
Powerful words indeed — excerpted from a recent blog posted to the SAP Community Network by technical consultant and SAP Mentor Tom Cenens, in which he outlined what it takes to achieve SAP HANA certification.
SAP Education has been hard at work in 2012 to expand and improve its global certification program, and it’s folks like Tom who are among those best placed to share their views on the subject. And Tom will do exactly that in an expert networking session, during which he will further expand on his experiences detailed in his blog: Preparing for HANA: How to Achieve SAP Certified Technology Associate Certification. In Tom’s session, you can learn about the SAP HANA courses on offer, which alternative paths are available, learn how you can set up your own hands-on environment, and get tips and tricks to prepare for certification in SAP HANA.
Beyond the red-hot topic of SAP HANA certification, there’s a wider world of certifications available from SAP Education. Explaining it all will be Sue Martin, global director of SAP Education’s certification program. In her session, Sue will provide an update on the latest certifications and share SAP’s roadmap for Certification in 2013. And with most roads at SAP invariably leading back to SAP HANA, Sue will also take the opportunity to officially launch the new SAP HANA Professional Exam.
Here are the details for these two Expert Networking Sessions on Certification:
