It’s fair to say that the addition of Partner Learning Camp (PLC) and Accredited Professional (AP) Exams has been a great addition to the repertoire of Salesforce’s programs that allow individuals and organisations to skill up on various clouds/ offerings. I have been a huge proponent of PLC & AP from the early days – if you have not read the Part 1 and Part 2 of my ‘Demystifying PLC & AP’ blog posts, please read those to get a better context.
Now that PLC & AP have been around for a while, I felt it will be good to do a State of the Union reflection of the good, the bad and the ugly pieces of this puzzle. And while I continue to support PLC and APs strongly, I will be completely unbiased and fair (as always) in my assessment, so here we go!
Please see Part 1 post if you want an introduction to what is Partner Learning Camp and what are Accredited Professional exams. In this post, I will focus a bit more on what’s changed in the world of PLC and APs and of course, the ongoing “Salesforce Days” campaign.
As in the earlier post, I will ONLY mention things which are publicly accessible to maintain and respect confidentiality as applicable. And of course, this post is written in my personal capacity and does not represent the views of my employer or any of my other affiliations.
First up, Salesforce Days – a whole new world of learning opportunities (and who doesn’t love swag!)
To say that the last few months in the Salesforce Partner ecosystem have been really exciting, would be an understatement of sorts. I believe that in general, Salesforce has done a phenomenal job on enablement and training over the years and recently, it has just stepped up the game even further with Partner Learning Camp (PLC) and the launch of new Salesforce Accredited Professional (AP) exams.
While there’s a good amount of information published around PLC and APs, I get a lot of questions from people on Linkedin & Twitter around the same – so here’s an attempt to explain these from a fellow Salesforce Partner Community member perspective.
Read on if you are eager to know more. I’ll obviously be respecting confidentiality and sharing whatever is publicly available information.
