About Hiapo

The training program will be a combination of soft and technical skills that will prepare students to adapt to a dynamic workforce. The program will focus on the Salesforce Administrator platform where students will learn the fundamentals through weekly sprints that emphasize design and implementation, agile methodologies to foster communication and accountability, and end-of-week demonstrations to highlight the student’s mastery of concepts.

Salesforce Administrator Certificate

Computer-software companies outstrip all others in their use of Salesforce, leading the charge by 300% more than the next highest industry. At last count, there were more than 14,000 computer software companies using the software, and more than 4,700 IT companies doing the same — and that number is only growing. Salesforce isn’t the only CRM program available, but it holds a huge 19.6 percent market share, with Oracle coming in second at 7.1%, and SAP third with 6.5%.
