As part of SAP’s strategy to close the SAP skills gap in the ICT market and foster co-development with university students, a new online training offering will be made available specifically tailored to the needs of university students. Based on SAP e-Academy, the integrated certification online training offering from SAP Education, the new university focused offering will provide a strong value proposition to universities and students to become more employable through early in-study completion of SAP Certifications. The offering will cover core SAP certification tracks in SAP’s major market categories of Business Applications, Database & Technology, Analytics, and Mobility.
As with standard SAP e-Academies, this university-specific offering consists of an extensive suite of e-learning courses mapped to the knowledge requirements of the respective SAP Certification along with other supporting learning elements such as simulations, demonstrations, and exercises. Students are able to access a training server for a specified period in order to practice their acquired knowledge in an SAP solution training environment. If students have content-related questions along the learning path, they can receive remote, asynchronous tutor support from SAP Education.
This new training offering is the product of a joint initiative between SAP Education and SAP University Alliances which aims to increase the placement of SAP Certification curricula within the university sector through the provision of high-value, electronic learning content ultimately leading to SAP Certifications.
The concept is being announced during SAPPHIRE NOW Orlando 2013 and rolled out globally from Q3 2013 onwards.To find out more details around this announcement please join Martin Gollogly and myself in the free webinar scheduled for May 21st at 5pm Central European Time/11am Eastern StandardTime.
