Where to begin / What it involves:
SAP stands for Systems, Applications and Products in Data Processing, and is a leading Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software package from a German company named SAP AG.
Completing a SAP overview course is suitable for students with little or no SAP experience. There are two entry level courses. You should choose carefully between them to see which one is more suited to your needs. Both courses are three days in duration.
1) SAP 01 – SAP Overview:
This is the functional overview course for students who intend on becoming application consultants.
2) SAPTEC – mySAP Technology Solution Fundamentals:
This is the technical overview course for those who plan on becoming technical consultants, programmers or system managers/administrators.
Once you have completed the SAP01 or SAPTEC, you can progress to the SAP Certification program although the above courses are not a prerequisite for SAP Certification.
