Help/Guidance required for SuccessFactors Training/Certification

Hi All,

I'm Planning to take up SuccessFactors Training and Certification at my own cost(as independent participant). Is there anyone who has undergone SuccessFactors training & certification as independent participants? Please let me know as I have few queries to be clarified.

Thanks & regards,

    There are LOTS of blogs and threads about this here. It has been discussed fairly in-depth, but I think you will find that Former Member is probably the most approachable one with EXACTLY the background you have in common. He is/was an independent that took SF on all by his on....and that launched 1000+ blogs and post to follow (haha). I am sure he will chime in here as I just lit up the Batman spotlight. 🤪

    That said, I would ask you....what is your end (or "near" end) goal with this? I an independent taking the training for certification, are you doing so merely to better position yourself with a consulting company/SF partner to be hired on (ie. they would not have to pay to train/cert you up)? That position....I could see....but it is a lot of money out of your own pocket versus joining a consulting company and letting them send you through it. But on the other side....are you doing so in hopes of landing independent SF work? That position/goal is a whole other path to travel that is riddled with obstacles and trials all along the way....and likely near impossible at this time. In a nutshell, the SF (SaaS) space is just not "independent friendly" at the moment.

    So I I question back to you before all your questions.....why as an independent do you want to take the SF certification?

    Dear Hari,

    Good Day!

    My name is Rizwan,8 years of SAP HCM experience .

    I work mostly on Talent Management Areas.

    I would like to do my Success Factors certification.I dont work with SF partner company.I work for a CMM level 3 company called Kaar Technologies, a middle east SAP projects specialised company.

    I have selected country as Germany and opted for the Subscription to Cloud Solution CER0006,paid the transaction amount 500ponds, but still it is in progress and didn't get any confirmation yet. do members working outside partner companies allowed to take SF certification?

      Hi Rizwan,

      Yes, even individual participants can do certification. I took it as Independent participant. If there are any issues, reach out to your local\region specific SAP Education team they should be able to help you. I'm not sure about this issue.
