SAP University Alliances Americas Virtual Boot Camps 2020/2021

This winter SAP University Alliances Americas Virtual Boot Camps were offered to our SAP University Alliances Americas faculty members in both North America and Latin America during 2 weeks in December 2020 and the first week of January 2021.  

Based on overwhelming demand for virtual training on SAP courses during the Summer 2020 and after executing virtual trainings successfully our faculty instructors created curriculum that would fit into the virtual format and keep the students (faculty members) interested. Over 430 faculty members registered to attend multiple offerings during our three weeks of virtual trainings.

The boot camps were conducted in a hybrid mode. Each instructor had asynchronous, synchronous, as well as hands-on components throughout the course. For a more complete overview of the trainings can be found on our SAP North America Virtual Training website.

Each instructor conducted a kick-off call prior to the start of the boot camp to discuss schedules, homework and materials. We want to thank our instructors for all their hard work and preparation that has made the transition into a virtual environment smooth. 

During our Winter 2020 – 2021 virtual boot camps, the 430 registrants had over a 60-85% show up rate for the courses which was lower than our show up rate for our summer offerings. Zoom fatigue is indeed setting in! We issued approximately 350  of our participants certificates for completing these courses and are now skilled in these SAP topics. 

We are now actively planning our schedule of virtual boot camps for July 2021 and will open registration in March so look for our announcement soon
