How to become Salesforce Certified Professional?

Getting your first (and not only) Salesforce Certification isn’t very easy thing, but it will pay off just after you nail it! It will boost your confidence with the topic and increase your salary. Also, all time spent on preparation will give you more insight into the studied topic. It is definitely beneficial to demonstrate your knowledge by getting Salesforce Certification, as Salesforce Certification Program is well recognized by companies and established by Salesforce from the very beginning. It will look very good in your resume though!

Follow below steps to perform technical actions in order to schedule your certification exam.

1. Navigate to Salesforce Trailhead and choose your certification.

Next to each certification you will find “Schedule Now” button, which will direct you to Webassessor page.
