    It is not the question of Institute, but the quality of the tutor. Though all partners, if you are lucky, you may good tutor. If you do not find good tutor, then you will have to live with it.

    There are number of people struggling for getting job even after SAP Certification. Please make a cautious decision before investing huge amount. SAP market has become competitive with huge number of consultants in the market.

    Kind Regards,

    • Please note SAP Certification is not a job guarantee program. Most of the institutes claim they do the job assistance (NOT Job guarantee). Therefore, there is no guarantee that you are going to get a job. You need to show your skills, mettle to clear and convenience the interviewers and recruiters.

      Best Regards,

    Hi Atul,

    I think all your previous query's answered by the above peoples.... But i want to say for something more in addition to Ravi Sankar which he routed the present scenerio to you....!!!

    Request you to look some more points below which would always hit my mind to give better route.

    1, if I can pay 4 to 5 lakh hardly for SAP MM certified course does it worth for my future?

    :- How important is SAP certification for you.:-

    Once upon a time in SAP there was a market by knowing the TCode or SAP Enduser they were taking into Junior Consultant role. But nowadays its became very competitive in market you need to know a lot in the subject and also basic entry became by having the certification in hand.

    Anyhow if you have plan for Certification that will be better idea then go for SAP MM according to your domain expereince and regarding market openings there are lot of MM& SD Consultant with certified searching job in market but camparatevly you have domain expereince in your organisation which will be added credits to your cv.

    But still my advise would be before going to Ceritification you do the ground study about the Module and try to practise more scenerio based on the concept wise for atleast 6 months by this mean time you will understand the market situation also whether to proceed for certification or not.

    Regarding SAP MM Certification from ATOS its a good choice camparitively for the placements from others but where ever you go for training try to look out the availablity of Exp. trainer should meet your expection aswell ☺....

    And also I am concern @ the opportunity & future ..... Now its became bit tuff due to slowdown of the job market in India…which iam highlighting about present situation...

    But i would like to tell some Do and Dont's here...

    1, Don't ever resign from your existing job for studies. Today the world is very competitive so train your self to sail on multiple boats simultaneously.

    2. Don't put all your investments nor into borrowings for investing into further studies your current earnings should be the source of investment into it.

    3. Do keep 51% reserve for your fate and do your best for rest of 49% as even after putting your best efforts there is no assurance of success as your luck always runs faster than you.

    After completion of your certification its not really sure about you will get job within a month or within quarter year. Its all about the opportunity in market aswell as your Complete knowledge in subject Plus your fate + YOUR PATIENCE.....

    So All the best ☺☺!!!

    Thanks

    NayeeM...

    Hi Atul,

    I have attended the training for SAP Basis in ATOS, bangalore, i would say why sap has given them the partner for sap training. They don't have qualified trainers which is very important and significant, bze materials were given by SAP no problem in that. After my first two of training, i was forced to put on request to change the trainer, as he was fake and dont have real time experience and they have arranged a part time trainer for me .... i dont have other option except to accept that... so it went like this for me. Whereas for other models i see some regular tutor's so before joining please meet the tutor and have a discussion so you can find whether he can able deliver as you were 2 years exp i hope you can judge him.

    regards

    karthik

    I can connect you with few of ATOS past graduates and you may directly discuss the reviews..

    on other hand I myself graduated form Genovate, HYD (SD module) - highly recommended! pretty satisfied with the quality of education, services, facilities + professionalism.

    Hello Atul,

    You have 2 years of supply chain domain experience which is good enough to understand the business process cater to manufacturing industy.

    I would recommend you to go for E- Learning if you are currently working. SAP MM Certification is always advisable and recommended for the candidates who are serious for ERP Consulting career.

    ATOS is a good brand to be associated to. Let me know if you want any clarity on E- Learning.

    I found E- Learning mode which is very interesting, innovative way to clear the certification exam with out leaving your job and it also save your money too.

    Best Wishes,

    Anshul Mishra

    Dear Atul,

    After a lot of deliberations I decided to pursue SAP Certification from JKT Kolkata. I opted for the elearning mode to pursue certification.

    Having completed the same in one go I was quite optimistic about getting a job. However I found that the IT companies were reluctant to hire a fresher like me armed only with certification and no real time exposure.

    However I remained persistent and joined a small organization where I gained hands on project experience for a year and now I hold 2 offers in my hand. One from a leading manufacturing firm and another from a CMM 5 IT organization.

    Therefore the bottomline is that certification is only useful when you have at least some real time hands on project experience.

    Also for the record be it ATOS or Genovate or JKT, you can only expect to get a placement if you are persistent and gain at least some real time project experience pre or post certification.

    Best of luck for your future endeavors.

    Hope my feedback would help you to make a wise career choice.

    Regards,

    AyanM

    HI

    you can absolutely get certified from ATOS, Delhi. They are very helpful till the time you transfer the money. They might have given you assurances that they have an average package of 4.5 lakhs per year and the minimum package of 3.5 lakh per year, Ms Kathamrita Banik, is even ready to give you placement guarantee, and after you join the course she is no where to be seen, then if you contact the placement officer Mr Deepak Mishra, he will say these counselors have no idea what they are committing, then he will go on with his favourite quotation, saying " I have forwarded your profile to <taking huge MNCs name, every MNC you have ever heard of, and some local companies as well>

    and will let you know regarding the interviews" and if you follow up with them he would reply "Profiles have been sent, waiting for the companies to respond" and if you follow up even more, Mr Shashank Kohli, their head, will say "i will go through your profile and make it my top priority", or will say "i an moving on and currently serving the notice period"

    so in short,i have been certified since 5months now no luck, hence they have amazing placements, best of luck.

    All institutes are almost same. But, keep in mind once you finish the certification, the help provided by institutes are most important. Also, the quality of the trainer is of major importance. Make sure that you get a good trainer.

    Still there are companies like Capgemini, IBM, Fujitsu who hires fresher with domain. But, do not dream of a huge package at the beginning.

    Rest assured, you will do well if you are through with the subject.

    Good Luck!

    Lakhya

    Dear Atul,

    If you are already on JOB and looking at SAP certification as an additional qualification, I would suggest you to go for Online training rather than going for class room training.

    You will have option to go through your cause for more than 2-3 times and you will be able to move at your own pace.

    In case if you find difficulty there is a very good option of arranging an ADOBE session with subject matter expert (SAP SME) and they will clear all your doubts.

    In my personal openoin online training is batter option than that of Class room training.

    and if you are going for online training it doesn't make much difference with whomsoever you may go.

    Regards

    Chirag

    Hi Atul

    As suggested by many experts, its not matter of institute, its matter of tutor it makes difference, kindly think twice before joining for class room training, i have seen people worried about the their faculty at the time of their class room training,

    if you have any friend reference who completed the class room training and he satisfied with the faculty then you can join, otherwise as many experts suggested,

    Please join only online training which is always suggestible interms of money, as well as you can continue your job also attend the classes more than once, so that you can easily understand,

    Some institutes will allow for some class (ex Genovate Hyderabad, i was allowed for some classes in class room training if you face any difficulty for certain topics)

    all the best,

    thanks,

    Srinu.
