      Hi Doris,

      indeed, i wasn't aware of these learning offerings and $160.50 for 20 hours of live instruction doesn't seem too expensive. however, not being able to press the 'Proceed to checkout' button in one's browser seems because "The items in your basket are not ready for checkout" seems like a selling oppportunity lost.

      thank you, gm

      Hi Doris,

      Can you confirm if all the courses mentioned here are available as part learning hub professional edition?

      The learning hub content doesnt specify on what courses are available, may be this detail can help people looking to invest in the learning hub.

      Thank you

      Dear Pradeep,

      I gave a hint in the headline of each chapter which parts are entirely available and where we are still in preparation. In those cases where we have a course available, it means that the course is potentially offered in the 'SAP training and certification webshop' and - with a little time difference - you will also find the corresponding eLearning on SAP Learning Hub. Also, all EKT Learning Maps listed bove are available on SAP Learning Hub - yes, in the professional edition.

      All available links (e.g. to the webshop course or the eLearning on SAP Learning Hub) can be easily accessed in the Learning Journeys. These also show available courses (in black letters) versus courses that are still in preparation (in grey letters). The learning journeys are continousely updated. This is the link to all learning journeys: https://training.sap.com/learning

      Please look for titles that start with "SAP S/4HANA Finance - ".

       

      Does this answer your question?

      Best regards, Doris.

      Question:

      I am planning to do the certification: SAP Certified Application Associate – SAP S/4HANA for Financial Accounting Associates (SAP S/4HANA 1511) (C_TS4FI_1511) but I truly wanted to do the 1610 version.

      Do you know when the 1610 version will be available or/ delta exam if I was to finalise the 1511.

      Hello Joseph, we are planning to offer the 1610 version until end of May. Please note that this plan could still change. But since the courses that are needed for this certification are already updated to 1610, I am optimistic that we won't have a long delay here. Good luck! Best regards, Doris.

      Dear Doris,

       

      I'm looking at the available training offerings to transition to S/4 Finance. I'm a 10+ year experienced Finance consultant in ECC6.0.  If I understand correctly,  the best approach for me would be to take the journey based on these courses:

      • S4F01/E – Financial Accounting in SAP S/4HANA
      • S4F02/E – Management Accounting in SAP S/4HANA
      • S4F03/E – Migration to SAP S/4HANAFor details,

      and certification would be:

      • SAP Certified Application Professional – Financials in SAP S/4HANA for SAP ERP Finance Experts (P_S4FIN_1610)

      Is this correct?

       

      Also, I'm a lil' lost on the various options that SAP offers for training. I'm looking for a training option that I can take from my location without having to go to a classroom.. would all that be available through the Learning Hub??

       

      Thank you

      Leo

      Hello Leo,

      this is correct. This is the relevant learning journey for you: https://help.sap.com/doc/221f8f84afef43d29ad37ef2af0c4adf/HP_2.0/en-US/5003541c7a261014b28ada3ecd70a29d.html

      Please ensure that - if you want to take the certification that you mention for release SAP S/4HANA 1610 - that you attend the three courses that you mention in this version. On SAP Learning Hub, you can indeed find each of these courses as ebook (which is the course material) and eLearnings. Principally the exam can be taken with the eLearnings only, and we had participants who managed to pass the exam this way. But please note that the chance to pass it is higher when you also do the exercises (e.g. via Liveaccess) and thereby get some practice - and the best way to get prepared is to take the classroom training. I hope this helps.

       

      Best regards, Doris.

      Hi Doris

       

      can you tell me what is (if any) the difference between the S4F01E and  TS4F01, fist is also avialable in E course. Is the material identical?

      My understanding is, that "T" course is the first step for the certification, but can I take the S4F01E plus S4F02E and S4F03E to get  certification P_S4FIN? DO I have to take the "T" courses to get to the P_S4FIN certification?

      thanks

      Hello Peter,

      S4F01 is one course, it is not part of an academy. The prefix "T" represents an academy which consists of several courses. Example: The FInancial Accounting academy consists of four courses that can be either booked separately (S4F12 + S4F13 + S4F15 + S4F17) or alternatevely as an academy. The academy consists of two parts: TS4F01 (=S4F12 + S4F13) and TS4F02 (=S4F15 + S4F17). The academy is split in two parts because not many people want to do full-time learning for four weeks in one time interval.

      The S4F01 is part of the upskilling Learning Journey - it is addressed to consultants who are already familiar with Finance implementations (SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP) for many years (>5). S4F01 + S4F02 + S4F03 lead to a professional certification (P_S4FIN). These are not offered in one academy (globally) - eventually check local offers, please.

      Does this answer your question? All the best, Doris.
