This curriculum is offered in these locations and formats

Women+ STL KC Part-Time In-Person Virtual
Students learn Salesforce administration and are introduced to Salesforce development with the opportunity to utilize that knowledge to obtain the Salesforce Administrator Certification. Salesforce is great for anyone interested in bridging customer service and tech through better collection and analysis of customer data. Salesforce administrators and developers can improve customer relationship management and automate marketing processes while facilitating stakeholder (such as donor or volunteer) engagement.

What You Need to Know

Students will need access to a laptop to participate in the course. While LaunchCode does not provide laptops to people who are in the process of applying, we can explore resources with our enrolled learners if they are unable to replace a laptop that stops functioning during class. (For affordable laptop and wifi access, we recommend looking into PCS FOR PEOPLE, CONNECT ALL, and the AFFORDABLE CONNECTIVITY PROGRAM). Chromebooks and tablets will not be sufficient for use in this course. If you own a PC, you must have Windows 10 or a more recent operating system. It should have at least 4 GB RAM, though 8 GB is strongly recommended. If you own a Mac, it should run the latest operating system. Please apply all system upgrades before coming to class.

Although this course is free, it is challenging and requires commitment. Outside of class, you are expected to spend 10-15 hours completing Trailhead assignments, watching videos, working on practice problems, and completing assignments. Learners will also work on their own custom Salesforce project. No previous coding experience is required for this class.

Please note the blue tags in each available course below to determine which course is offered in the format and location you wish to apply.
