This year I’ve had the pleasure of helping with the Certification Study Group that Deepa Patel (@dpcrmguru) runs in the Salesforce Community.
I first came across this study group back in 2015. I was super excited to see so many members in the community asking questions and helping each other to study for their Salesforce certifications. I already had my ADM 201, but it was nice to know this was available for so many community members.
When I made the decision to go for my ADM 211 certification, I knew just where to start! I was lucky enough to get in Tami Esling’s group. She was a wonderful session leader! She was helpful, inspiring and made a huge life long impression in my personal life.
We’ve completed 10 sessions so far! I know my members are learning so much from one another. The sessions are all run by Community members that are already certified. There are requirements to join a study group session. Trailhead badges and real world experience is necessary to keep up the the other members in the group.
Seeing members using their knowledge to assist others in the group to understand key principles that are needed to pass a certification is inspiring. In our last session I witnessed a member who had trouble with lightning explain perfectly how to use territory management to the member who explained lightning home components to him.
Sharing knowledge is power and this Certification Study Group has epic amounts!
