Welcome all registrants to the digital skills initiative by SAP Learning! This discussion page will serve as a guide and Q&A forum for all candidates who are working toward their SAP Certification with and without the assistance of an instructor-led boot camp.
Once you have registered via a participating organization or applied here, here are some steps to take to make it through the process:
Step 1 – Create an SAP Account
You will need an SAP account to track your studies and take a certification exam. Watch the demo in this blog for help on how to do that. Please use the same email address that you registered with the digital skills initiative.
Also be sure to join the beginner corner as demonstrated in the demo – this is how you can reach out and ask questions below.
Step 2 – Make sure you have context
We have a long blog available attempting to explain the whole "learning SAP" process from beginning to certification. Take from it what you need to ensure getting certified in SAP is worth the effort to you.
Step 3 – Understand how and what to study
Identify what learning journey your boot camp sessions will be covering.
Please keep in mind that our instructors cannot guide you through every piece of testable content of your learning journey in the time allotted for their sessions. You must also self-study through the learning journey as well – ideally before meeting the instructor so you can attend the sessions prepared with your questions.
Be sure the completion of this learning journey is recorded under your SAP account. (You need to be registered and logged in with the same email address that you signed up with the digital skills initiative.)
Step 4 – Use the sandbox system for hands-on practice
If this is your first foray into the SAP ecosystem, it’s important that you have touched an SAP system at least a few times.
Read this blog on how to practice with SAP S/4HANA Cloud for free.
Here is a link to an exercise guide that you can use on this system.
Step 5 – Receiving your certification attempt
After your learning journey completion, you will receive a redemption code for your SAP certification attempt. It may take some time to receive this code, apologies for the delay – we are working on this as fast as we can! To expedite receipt, you can send a screenshot of your completion of firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 6 - Schedule your exam
Check out our blog on how to schedule your SAP Certification exam.
Please feel free to drop a comment below if you have any questions or comments. Best of luck with your studies!
Step 7 - Explore Career Options

Aug 2023 Bootcamp on Project managing a SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud implementation

I had the following questions.
Are the two journeys we discussed during our boot camp sufficient for passing the certification exam? I noticed that when I clicked on the "View Certification" option in the "How to Prepare" section, there was a recommendation to complete a new journey called "Project Manage an SAP S/4HANA Cloud, Public Edition Implementation," which differs from the journeys we discussed.
When will the distribution process for the certification exam commence?
Can you provide an estimate of the number of study hours required to complete the certification (Including the journey time)?
I can help with these questions:
I hope this helps!
Thank you so much for your amazing BootCamp. This helped me gain a lot of knowledge and ideas about SAP implementation. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend today's career fair. Where can I find each partner's point of contact to explore upcoming internships or full-time opportunities at their individual organizations? I recently graduated and am actively looking for SAP-related employment opportunities.
Hi @marcinizydorczy ,
We do not confirm or track attendance in the bootcamp as the bootcamp is a supplement to the learning journey itself. The learning journey remains the key to passing the exam and it is the completion of the learning journey that creates eligibility for the free certification attempt.
Thank you so much for coordinating the amazing BootCamp. Excited to attend the remaining sessions this week!
Thank you, looking forward to your response!

Hi @David_Chaviano ,
Hope you're great. As @XeloHim mentioned, I'm planning to complete the SAP Technology Consultant Professional Certificate from Coursera any time soon, but I also decided to subscribe to this bootcamp. So, in my case, will I have to attend all sessions and complete the learning journey this week (from 08/28 to 09/01) in order to claim the free exam voucher o there will be more time after the bootcamp to achieve those goals?
Many thanks in advance!
