Salesforce Bootcamp Part 8 - Nonprofit Cloud Success NPSP

Salesforce Bootcamp Part 8 - Nonprofit Cloud Success NPSP

Salesforce Career Success Bootcamp - Nonprofit Cloud Success Pack - Learn the Object Model and Ins and Outs of NPSP.

For this course, I recommend that you sign up for a new free Salesforce Developer Account, rather than using an existing one you have been using through the previous modules of this Bootcamp Course Series.

In this course, we will be installing the Nonprofit Success Pack into a Free Developer account, which will change the Account Model in the org - this is why I would like for you to perform the steps in this module in a fresh, new developer account.

This course is the eighth course of my Salesforce Career Success Bootcamp Series of courses - there are a total of 11 courses in this Bootcamp Series. This course builds upon the work we performed in the previous courses in this Bootcamp series. I recommend that you take these courses in sequential order.

I have previously encouraged my students to volunteer for a non-profit in order to gain Salesforce experience to add to their resume. This course is instrumental in helping you to learn key differences in the nonprofit instance of Salesforce, which differs greatly from a regular, enterprise (for-profit) instance of Salesforce.

Who is this Bootcamp Series For?

This Bootcamp Series and this course, the Nonprofit Cloud Success Pack, is intended for someone that is trying to land their first Salesforce job and has been told that they lack the appropriate level of experience. This particular course will be helpful especially to those that desire to volunteer for a non-profit in order to gain experience, but have had no exposure yet to the Nonprofit Cloud from Salesforce.

No certification or prior Salesforce experience is required. 

This Bootcamp series helps you expand and deepen your knowledge of the Salesforce platform. You will also come away with real-world applications that you can use in your own life – whether in an existing job, or helping you land you first, or next, Salesforce job.

Why I Created this Bootcamp Series of Courses

I surveyed my students to find out what the biggest challenges were that they faced in launching their own Salesforce career. The most reported obstacle to starting a Salesforce career was a lack of experience. I created this Salesforce Career Success Bootcamp Series to empower you to 'Make Your Own Experience' rather than passively waiting for someone else to bestow your first Salesforce job randomly.
