On June 30, 2017 I passed my first attempt at the Salesforce Certified Administrator exam.
To verify this please go to certification.salesforce.com/verification.
I am pursuing my second certification now called “Salesforce Certified Platform App Builder” or SF Certification 401, formerly known as Developer 401. I am scheduled to take this exam on September 12th.
After that I plan on pursuing an additional 3 certifcations. They are:
- Salesforce Certified Advanced Administrator (October 2017)
- Sales Cloud Certified Consultant (December 2017)
- Marketing Cloud Certified Consultant (February 2018)
I found Salesforce to be a very natural extension of Zoho. The two cloud apps have a lot in common. For example, the security model is virtually identical, with the exception that Salesforce has more features (such as permission sets) which allow a greater degree of granularity within the security matrix, as well as making administration easier.
