Hi All,

I’ll kick off the discussion and second post on the beginner corner! I’d first like to welcome everyone and let you know that the beginner corner is a great place to get connected with peers and SAP experts on all matters regarding your SAP learning journey.

Welcome to the Student Corner.jpg

We recommend you start learning with the Introducing End-to-End Business Processes for the Intelligent Enterprise learning journey to gain a baseline understanding of what we do and how. This will provide the context behind everything else that you will learn in the future.

Below is a short demo on how you can create an SAP Account and start interacting with us in the beginner corner:

If you have any other questions or comments, the beginner corner is here for you. No question is too simple or complex – we look forward to hearing from you.

Happy learning!

-David

Good day am Hennie, I am new on the platform. How many units should one complete to qualify for certification and which units? 

Lovely to meet you David and fellow students,

My name is Ali Siddiqui and I am currently planning to learn all about SAP  as I work my way through my Supply Chain Management certification from George Brown College's Continuing Education program here in Canada.

If anyone has any advice regarding any SAP programs/modules that are Supply Chain Management relevant I am all ears! 

Once again glad to you all and hope everyone achieves their goals.

Cheers,

Ali Siddiqui

Hi @former_member10843 ,

Thanks for the question! I can offer the SAP Integrated Business Planning for Supply Chain learning journey which is available for free to students via the SAP Learning Hub, edition for SAP Next-Gen .

Check out my blog on how to get started with learning hub here.

I hope this helps!

Regards,

David

Hi @former_member10784, when clicking on a Learning journey, you will see different units that prepare you for your certification exam. The amount of units depends on the topic you are interested in, but I would recommend checking our all available content in the units, after doing that you are for sure prepared for the certification!

Hi @former_member10843, I recommend checking out this website: https://www.sap.com/canada/products/supply-chain-management/products.html. You can find an overview about SAP solutions for Supply Chain Management there.

You can then find learning resources for these solutions at https://learning.sap.com/learning-journey, but since not all available learning content is yet linked here at SAP Learning, so you maybe also want to have a look at other websites, e.g. https://open.sap.com/courses.

All the best for you too!

Hi @David_Chaviano  & SAP

Thanks for the tip on where to start and thanks to SAP for opening up all this free learning.

I am making my way through the Introducing End-to-End BP course and it's like a mini MBA course.

Hi everyone,

I wish we have a Discord Server, where we can get 1 to 1 guidance and talk verbally on call with SAP experts from all over the world and better understand about SAP. This will not only get more new audience from Discord Platform but also help existing SAP users easily access SAP community.

Hi, I am very new to SAP and I need to take a  certificate for SAP Commerce Cloud Business User.

Currently I have started learning it in Learning Hub.

Just wondering - aside from each event or webinar provided from SAP itself, are there any activities in SAP learner side - like study session - like 'SAP online study session' or any communities of studying together?

@sap_makinur - Your best bet will be to understand exactly what solutions your employer is running and pursue certifications around that solution. Each solution should have something a security specialist should understand.

 @former_member121249  - Thanks for the suggestion! The challenge is that the spectrum of SAP related questions that can arise is wide. The chances that someone with a specific question and the appropriate expert is online at the same time is slim. 

We try to schedule discussion events on the community calendar: https://groups.community.sap.com/t5/sap-community/eb-p/community-events

Hi, does completing this learning journey give us a certification attempt only eligible for a Cloud S/4HANA consultant certification or does it provide a broad certification attempt which could be used for other SAP certification products such as SAP project management or Supply chain. Thanks.

Hi @former_member21585 , thanks for the question, technically you can complete any learning journey and receive an attempt that can be applied to any exam you want. This is assuming you are signed up for the digital skills initiative though.

Please bear with us as we issue certifications. It may take a couple weeks to get it!

Hi @mgupta49 ,

Thanks for reaching out! Most of the learning journeys for your area of expertise are paid offerings.

If you want a free learning track, I can recommend Explore Integrated Business Processes in SAP S/4HANA.

It will span all lines of business of SAP S/4HANA, but will also give you a general sense of the financial operations as well.


I hope this helps. Good luck with your studies!

Regards,

David
