Not against Education but IMO Certification is NOT necessary anymore


Probably against the Spirit of this Forum section but I can categorically state that in over 15 years as a SAP indpendent consultant who'se worked on a myriad of projects and been all over the World I have NEVER EVER been asked for any SAP certification whatsoever.

Don't get me wrong -I'm all in favour of Good Education but in the practical workplace it probably doesn't matter unless you work for one of those poorly paying PERMANENT Burocreatic Government or large organisation jobs where notational qualifications matter more than real "Know How".

In the REAL world of Independent consulting it really doesn't matter whether you gain SAP certification or not. Only if you are possibly TEACHING some very high level courses at say a University level * it could matter* and I only say COULD matter.

In practice if you can demonstrate reasonable knowledge you'll always find a SAP position.
