Salesforce week 6

Again study, study, study… Since last week I completed 2 certifications which takes me to 4 of the 5 I need. The last is Certified Salesforce Service Cloud Consultant which is looking pretty tricky but I have to find some material on the exam. Did my second round of volunteering – felt good. Closing off the year having volunteered 13 hours. Okay I think. Looking into how I can help for a Salesforce project in Africa. Interesting.

From here on it’s xmas, then new years and it’s time to think about other stuff than Salesforce for a while. See you on the other side…

What did I learn

  • Take the exam – go for it!
  • Sales Cloud certification was trickier than I thought it would be

Status after this week

Trailhead points: 57600

Trailhead badges: 59

Certifications: 4 (Salesforce Certified Administrator, Salesforce Certified Platform App Builder, Salesforce Certified Advanced Administrator, Salesforce Certified Sales Cloud Consultant)

  1. Hi Mikkel,

    Enjoying the series.  I’ve been hovering around the edges of Salesforce for a year or so since my company was bought out by another company, so I’ve enjoyed reading about a few ex-domino types moving towards Salesforce.

    For somebody considering coming across, would you say that doing the admin certs before the development ones gives you a better grounding and helps you get up to speed faster?   I don’t think I’m going to have the time to ramp up as quickly as you have (congrats!) and I’m finding that I don’t have quite the capacity for studiousness (if that’s a word) that I once had when I picked up a PCLP in a matter of months back in the day, so I need to chose wisely.


  2. Hey — yeah I would definitely recommend doing the Certified Salesforce Administrator certification first as it provides a very good foundation and explains a lot about the platform as such. It goes into objects, fields, security etc. which is really a prerequisite for doing any appdev on the platform. Good luck!
