In your job search, you must have bumped on job descriptions that contained a mysterious acronym as part of the skill set required for a position. You’ve probably heard family members or friends mention it while talking about their work. And that’s not surprising. SAP is the most used ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software on the market. That’s why BeCode is launching two training paths to learn how to use it. But what exactly is SAP and how can it help you get a job?
SAP stands for “System Analysis Program Development”. Don’t worry, it’s not as complex as it sounds. In a company, all departments work with a data set that they use for their specific tasks within the organization. Sales, inventory, finance, or human resources all need to access certain information easily. Yet, often, it is necessary to access data collected by another department. To do so, you can walk into your sales colleague’s office, pick up your phone or, in the corona context, have a boring Zoom call about it. But SAP offers a simpler, time-saving solution for your questions. It helps companies better manage complex business processes by giving employees of different departments easy access to real-time insights across the enterprise.
Being the market leader, countless organizations, from SMEs or startups to global companies, use one or several of its software in order to accelerate workflows, improve operational efficiency, raise productivity, enhance customer experiences – and ultimately increase profits. Do you see where we are going with this? Yes, correct, SAP skills can help you get a job.
As of January 2021, BeCode will be offering free SAP trainings to become
either an end-user or a consultant. After following these learning paths, participants will be able to take the SAP certification test, which will enable them to get the much sought after SAP certification. Whether you have a background in HR, sales, production or finance, these trainings are a solid opportunity for you to boost your profile on the job market as there are more than 6.000 vacancies for SAP-trained profiles.
To follow the course, you don’t need to be a dark web wizard or an IT magician. You just need to know how to use a computer and to have a basic understanding of logistical business processes.
If you follow the end user training, you will be introduced to the world of SAP in 4 weeks and will learn how to manage data and be part of migration projects. You will be able to use SAP as part of your job.
If you opt for the 10-weeks consultant training, you will become comfortable with forecasting and planning, procurement processes and many other specific skills that will enable you to manage projects with SAP.
