A common question for many at the beginning of their Salesforce journey is: “Which certification should I do first?” After all, there are so many to choose from!
Over the years, We’ve typically recommended Administrator. We have also caveated this. For example, the Administrator Certification is not easy. The syllabus has both breadth and reasonable depth. This is understandable given the importance of the Administrator role in an org. For new starters, it does mean that there is quite a ‘step up’ to achieve this goal.
Salesforce’s new introductory certification attempts to address this. It is not a ‘professional’ certification but provides a more straightforward first step.
