Why Learn Salesforce?
Career opportunities in the Salesforce ecosystem are growing rapidly, and offer a low hurdle to entry-level tech jobs. Salesforce is the world's leading customer relationship management solution, used by organizations from Fortune 500 companies to government agencies and local non-profits. The role of Salesforce Administrator is a great starting point for a career in the ecosystem, and our Accelerator is a great place to learn the skills you need to get started.
What is Salesforce?
What Makes It Awesome?
At Awesome Inc, everything we do starts with our Core Values. We care about people, and making a difference in our community. That's why we want to help everyone we can to learn the life changing skills they need to pursue their definition of “awesome.” And while doing that, we've seen that the best way to learn a new skill is to join a community, and get the right help on your journey. It's so easy to waste time trying to learn something by yourself, constantly running into problems with no one to talk to, but we're here to help! With coaching from experienced guides, classmates working alongside you, and a curriculum built by Salesforce themselves, we're ready to meet you where you're at, and help you succeed.
The best learning happens not when you're just taught information, but when you connect with others who are learning alongside you. Our Salesforce Career Accelerator program is designed to both teach you key technical skills, and to foster real-world connections to the material. It does this while offering flexibility as a part-time course with both live and self-paced components. Plus, with guided curriculum, and a wealth of expert-led sessions, you'll never be lost or left behind.
Prior Awesome Inc students have come from a variety of backgrounds, including manufacturing, retail, design, food service, law, healthcare, and more. Whatever your background, this course is made for you.
