Description

Salesforce is now the 7th most in-demand IT skill on job postings worldwide. Now is a great time to learn Salesforce and change your career to the cloud. 
Salesforce retired their Developer 401 Certification in September, 2015. Taking its place is the new Salesforce Platform App Builder Certification, which is considered the starting point for Beginner and Aspiring Developers on the Salesforce Platform. This course covers every core concept that you need to understand in order to pass the Platform App Builder Certification Exam.
This course is structured after the official Study Guide for this certification. We go through each section of the Study Guide and I have devoted a corresponding section of the course with each section of the Study Guide. Helpful quizzes close out each section of the course, so you can test your retention and knowledge of these core concepts as you pursue getting certified.
In this course we will:
  • Sign You Up for a Free 2-User Salesforce Account
  • Go through over 20 hours of video training content
  • Complete Quizzes after each section of the course
  • Develop an IMDb Clone app throughout the duration of this course
  • Create External Objects and External Data Sources using Salesforce Connect and Heroku
  • Work extensively in the Setup Menu for both Salesforce Classic and the new Lightning Experience

“Are you learning valuable information?” 99.6% answered YES
“Are the explanations of the concepts clear?” 99.8% answered YES
“Is the instructor knowledgeable about the topic?” 99.9% answered YES
