Salesforce Administrator Certification Prep

Salesforce is a leading cloud-based customer relationship management platform with over 150,000 customers worldwide. Someone has to make certain the system meets the needs of the organization using it, whether that’s a nonprofit, a financial institution, a healthcare provider, government, or a Fortune 500 company. Salesforce Administrators do just that. And the best part about the Salesforce platform is that it’s accessible! Our course featuring independent study and an interactive class once per week prepares students to sit for the Salesforce Administrator Certification Exam. It also prepares qualified individuals to enter into an apprenticeship program with BIT and our partners.
