In North America, University Alliances has hosted Train-the-Trainer bootcamps for many years. Since the pandemic, we have been forced to change the way we have done things and host these events virtually. As much as we miss the in person contact and wonderful food, our virtual bootcamps in the Summer of 2020 were very successful. Our instructors worked very hard to create curriculum that would fit into the virtual format and keep the students (faculty members) interested. Below are the bootcamps that were offered in Summer 2020:

July 6 - 10 Introduction to SAP S/4HANA Tom Wilder
July 6 - 10 Introducción a SAP S/4HANA Aulis Tornero
July 6 - 10 SAP S/4HANA Configuration Simha Magal
July 13 - 17 SAP Analytics Nancy Jones
July 20 - 24 SAP Blockchain Services Nitin Kalé


During our Summer 2020 Virtual bootcamps, we received almost 500 registrations and had over a 90% show up rate! Nearly 70% of our participants received certificates for completing these courses and are now skilled in these SAP topics. Since the Summer 2020 bootcamps were so successful, we decided to host virtual bootcamps in December 2020/January 2021 and offer even more options for our University Alliances members. Below are the offerings for our Winter 2020-21 Virtual Bootcamps:

December 8-10 (Tues-Thurs) SAP Business Process Configuration Level 1 Simha Magal
December 15-17 (Tues-Thurs) Intro to Business Process Integration with S/4 HANA Tom Wilder
December 15-17 (Tues-Thurs) SAP Business Process Configuration Level 2 Simha Magal
December 16-18 (Wed-Fri) Intro to Blockchain Nitin Kalé
January 4-6 (Mon-Wed) Data Analysis with SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) Nancy Jones
January 4-6 (Mon-Wed) SAP Low-Code Development with Mendix Kathie Wright
January 7-8 (Thurs-Fri) Advanced Blockchain Nitin Kalé


We are wrapping up our first week of virtual bootcamps, with a successful SAP Business Process Configuration Level 1 course with Simha Magal. Each course requires a kick-off call prior to the start of the bootcamp to discuss schedules, homework and materials. We want to thank our instructors for all their hard work and preparation that has made the transition into a virtual environment smooth. We are excited about the rest of our bootcamps coming up in the next few weeks!
