Welcome all registrants to the digital skills initiative by SAP Learning! This discussion page will serve as a guide and Q&A forum for all candidates who will be joining us for our May 2024 SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud bootcamp

David_Chaviano_0-1684767804335.png

Once you have received your acceptance email, here are some steps you should be sure to take:

Step 1 – Create an SAP Account

You will need an SAP account to track your studies and take a certification exam. Watch the demo in this blog for help on how to do that. Please use the same email address that you registered with the digital skills initiative / bootcamp.

Also be sure to join the beginner corner as demonstrated in the demo – this is how you can reach out and ask questions below.

Step 2 – Make sure you have context

We have a long blog available attempting to explain the whole "learning SAP" process from beginning to certification. Take from it what you need to ensure getting certified in SAP is worth the effort to you.

Step 3 - Download Zoom Workplace to attend the bootcamp

Go to the Zoom download page to make sure you have the latest version of Zoom installed so you do not need to struggle with software installation 5 minutes before the start of the bootcamp.

Step 4 – Understand  what to study

Identify what learning journeys your bootcamp sessions will be covering:

1. Exploring SAP Cloud ERP

2. Implementing SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition 


Please keep in mind that you should also self-study through the learning journey (or at least skim it) as well – ideally before meeting the instructor so you can attend the sessions prepared with some questions.

Be sure the completion of this learning journey is recorded under your SAP account. (You need to be registered and logged in with the same email address that you signed up with the digital skills initiative.)

Step 5 – Receiving your certification attempt

After your learning journey completion, you will receive a redemption code for your SAP certification attempt. It may take some time to receive this code, apologies for the delay – we are working on this as fast as we can! To expedite receipt, you can send a screenshot of your completion of digitalskills@sap.com

  • Please log into the SAP Training Shop  with the same email address that you registered with the digital skills initiative and place this product into your shopping basket.
  • From there, follow this guide on how to use this campaign code to “pay” for your certification attempt.

    Please redeem the code ASAP when you receive it. You can schedule the actual exam up to six month after redemption.

Step 6 - Schedule your exam

Check out our blog on how to schedule your SAP Certification exam.

Please feel free to drop a comment below if you have any questions or comments. Best of luck with your studies!

Hi @Jen305 ,

You can find instructions for the self-study part of the program here.

The bootcamp cohort is filling up fast - I'd like to send you a private message to talk about this, but I cannot seem to message you. Can you double check your settings to ensure you can receive private/direct messaging?

Hi David, can you email the information to the Cohort to Jjoseph@alumni.seu.edu. I don't know why you are not able to email me on here but I would like to start with this cohort. I have access to the self pace work. I started last night.

Hi David_Chaviano  I encounter difficulties to simply joining the "beginner" or "welcome corner" groups. I get an "Access denied" message page  when I click on the "join group" button. However I have completed my registration as indicated in videos. 

Please how could I solve this?

Many thanks. Stephane

Hi @David_Chaviano ,

My name is Ryan and I am currently an ERP consultant of a local ERP products of a VN consultant firm. I am pursuing to become of SAP consultant in next year, I think this opportunity would be an amazing way to start me on a new career as an SAP solution designer.


I believe this digital skills initiative is an excellent opportunity to give back and assist others in taking the first step toward transforming their lives. While I am committed to staying motivated in my own learning, I find it even more crucial to pledge to pass on my knowledge and experience, helping to educate others when the opportunity arises.

Thank you for this wonderful opportunity.
