Trailhead is a free and fun way to learn in-demand skills in Salesforce.
Are you looking to learn more and expand your knowledge about Salesforce, but not exactly sure where to start? Salesforce’s Trailhead is the perfect place to get started. Salesforce created Trailhead as a fun and easy way to learn Salesforce.
Trailhead has thousands of paths (trails) that help you learn and level up your Salesforce career and skills. Whether you are just starting your Salesforce career or are an expert, continuing your education is always a great choice. Trailhead is always launching new trails for you to learn and earn badges and elevate your skills.
Let’s break down the different ways you can learn with Salesforce’s Trailhead.
Trailhead is comprised of Trails and Trailmixes which is where you can learn in-demand skills. Modules and Projects are where you can choose your own adventure in your learning and the Trailhead Academy is where you can accelerate your learning from Salesforce experts. You’ll also see the term Trailblazer once you start learning. Trailblazers are people who blaze their own trail with learning Salesforce. Ready to get started learning? You can sign up for your own Trailhead account here.
- Trails are guided learning paths through modules and projects that help you cover the most ground in the shortest amount of time. Consider them your personal game plan for exploring new skills.
- Trailmixes are custom learning paths you create from your favorite trails, modules, projects, and super badges. Share them to guide your fellow Trailblazers!
- Modules introduce you to specific topics in bite-sized units. Learn what a feature is, when it’s helpful, and how to use it. Then test yourself with interactive challenges.
- Projects give you hands-on practice with Salesforce technologies via step-by-step instructions. You’ll gain new skills — and confidence — faster than you thought possible.
Trailhead Academy helps to accelerate your learning across your organization with access to Salesforce experts
Not only is Trailhead a free platform for learning, but you can also earn resume-worthy credentials.
Start blazing your path and earning superbadges and certifications. Superbadges let you take the skills you’ve learned and apply them to complex, real-world business problems. And with Super Sets, you can prove your expertise in specific roles and take the next step towards getting certified. At SOLVD we suggest you start with your Admin Super Set, then your App Builder Super Set. Both of these are going to help you learn the skills needed to have a successful Salesforce career.
One of the greatest things about Trailhead is once you are feeling really confident blazing your trail, learning, and leveling up the skills you can get certified through Salesforce. Being certified through Salesforce is going to help grow your resume and highlight your skills. When you obtain certification through Salesforce you’re demonstrating to yourself, your employer, and the future clients that you have the skills. No matter your role; admin, marketer, developer, or consultant there are Salesforce certifications that will help you level up. A certification is an official acceptance from Salesforce that says I know my stuff. Earning a Salesforce certification requires a lot of hard work and dedication. You can only receive the certification once you are tested on the expertise and pass the exam. Wear that badge with honor once you get it!
Go At Your Own Pace
Learning new things can sometimes be overwhelming, one of the greatest things about Trailhead is that you can blaze your trail at your own pace. You’ve signed up, started earning badges and earning credentials, you can customize the type of information you want to learn through Trailmixes. Take your time, look at what you want to learn, favorite them, and create your own learning curriculum.
