Blaze your trail working remotely
With more of us working remotely from home, some of us now have newfound time to dedicate to training and upskilling. A great way of doing this is through Trailhead – the Salesforce learning platform. The platform not only covers the basics of their product but also offers educational content in terms of leadership, career development, well-being, collaboration and much more. We’d like to share with you how to get yourself and your team started on your Trailhead journey and also direct you to some topics we think might help whilst you work from home.
What is Trailhead?
Trailhead is a learning platform that combines bite-sized content with a gamified learning experience. With Trailhead you can learn new skills and earn points that will unlock badges and levels to work your way up the Trailhead ranks and eventually reach ‘Ranger’ status.
Trailhead can be accessed from any device through your account. You don’t have to be a Salesforce Customer to sign up and the platform is free to use and is designed around what users should learn, including soft skills. You can even learn using their handy app ‘Trailhead GO’. Salesforce constantly publishes updates, so there is always something new to learn along your personalised journey.
