I wanted to share the Flow of SAP Training & Certification - Associate level in case of Fresh Graduates
For Associate Certification no prior SAP Experience is required in case of Fresh Graduates.
Note: This can be followed only when your College or University is not registered in SAP University Alliance.
Here is the Flow :
Fresh Graduate (Technical / Functional)
Enters into SAP Training with local centers cost is feasible around Rs.20k to Rs.30 or even Rs.35k.
Learns Basic Configuration/Programming/Customizing under the guidance of SAP Trainer (Expert of SAP Industry).
After completing your training, make a small investment in buying SAP IDES System. You need to practice for another 45 days.
You need to create your company & company code in your SAP IDES System End – to End Configuration Solution in IDES.
While doing step-by-step customizing, you need to copy screenshots in MS Word along with SAP Menu Paths, complete one full Configuration cycle of particular SAP module and then take print out.
After taking print out of your configuration notes, just visit Education Partners Centers, tell them you are interested in SAP Consulting Career. Show your Configuration notes and tell them that you have taken training at local center under the guidance of SAP Industry Expert - SAP Trainer.
Education Partners will definitely allow you, if you are willing to join hands with them.
After Certification, Placement will happen through Education Partners - openings are based on Business requirement @ Partner Companies, you need to wait with patience and during your wait you need to do Demo project in your SAP IDES by referring SAP Material given by Authorized Centers.
This flow suits for Fresh Graduates and Students. As a Fresh Graduate I too followed the same flow, it took more time for me because my university/ college is not registered in SAP University Alliance. I faced difficulty in convincing Education Partners here in Bangalore. Now route is clear for Fresh Graduates. Education Partners are allowing Fresh Graduates limited seats only. My Education Partner is also encouraging College Graduates. I hope this flow will help every beginner of SAP especially Students & Graduates who are looking to excel in SAP Career.
I wanted to tell one thing to every one here - Do you know why I mention Trainee? Because I Practice in my SAP IDES daily and I am perfect in Configuration Flow of FICO with out any errors.
Thanks & Regards
