Academy to provide customers and resellers with classroom-based and online training
The UK & Ireland SAP User Group has launched an SAP Business One Academy to address the shortage of people with the skills needed to implement, manage and use SAP Business One.
The academy will provide customers and SAP resellers with classroom-based and online training to help achieve SAP Business One Associate Certification.
The plan with the new academy programme is to run two to three modules in 2020, training 50-70 people. The academy will deliver specific subject disciplines, such as customer relationship management (CRM), basic finance, logistics, administration and setup through to expert-level training.
“If you are a small 10-15-employee business, having someone away two to three days at a time is a big loss and often there will be aspects of training that aren’t relevant to that person’s job role. We have worked really closely with SAP to ensure that users are provided with a short and affordable course, which delivers the training they need,” explained Craig Dale, Chief Executive at the User Group
“Our members have frequently highlighted that there is a shortage of appropriate SAP Business One training for customers. User organisations require people with end-user or expert-level skillsets, while VARs (value added resellers) require SAP consultants to be certified and knowledgeable to implement the software for their customers.”
“We are delighted to be working closely with the SAP User Group on the launch and development of the SAP Business One Academy. We will work collaboratively to ensure our Business One customers have an improved understanding of the software they are using, and the power it can bring to their business,” said Matt Sinclair, Head of Business One and Business ByDesign, SAP UK & Ireland
The user group will host its first SAP Business One Academy basic finance module on Tuesday 11 February.
