Salesforce Platform Configuration and Administration Essentials Course

Join OpFocus for 5 days of in-depth learning about Salesforce using Lightning. We have extensive experience in Salesforce system implementations, architecture and best practices, and have worked with hundreds of executives and administrators to help them get the most out of their Salesforce instances.

In this course, we will guide you through Salesforce Certified Administrator exam topics and share the best practices expected of consultants at OpFocus. This course is taught on Salesforce’s new Lightning User Interface with regular comparisons to the old Classic User Interface. An emphasis is on helping companies think through migration to Lightning and take advantage of Lightning features. Course materials are updated for each new Salesforce release.
