Salesforce Training For Everybody: A 501Grants Overview

By | CRM & Salesforce

salesforce trainingAt 501Partners, we are committed to providing a full range of Salesforce solutions for nonprofits. We know that you want to learn the powerhouse that is Salesforce so that your organization can fully maximize its potential. Of course, sometimes budget constraints interfere with these goals. That’s where 501Grants comes in. Let’s not let budget constraints hold your NPO back from Salesforce success. Since many nonprofits simply do not have the budget to utilize our Senior Consultants, 501Grants uses one of our Consultant in Training Program participants to lead your project. With eight weeks of intensive training under their belts, our Consultant in Training will guide your nonprofit through implementation and consulting. Our CiT’s certainly know their stuff, but they will always be backed by one of our Senior Consultants as they engage in Discovery, provide a Project Roadmap, and execute implementation. Participants in the 501Grants Program will receive 40% off of our prevailing rates.

Is live hands-on training passé?

Given the huge amounts of video and webinar training available on the Internet, having a live instructor in a classroom is the exception to the norm. So when is it worth the time to leave work and sit in a classroom all day?

501Partners recently ran a Salesforce for Nonprofits Boot Camp session for fourteen nonprofit professionals. They came from a spectrum of agencies with a breadth of uses for the Salesforce platform. They took time to attend because integrating Salesforce into their organization is a vitally important decision. It’s also a process that requires an understanding of how the underlying structure of Salesforce creates a powerful engine to manage virtually all of their data across its entire life cycle.

TrainingSo, it’s worthwhile to invest time in classroom training when:

  • The subject matter addresses a wide spectrum of topics and processes
  • The subject matter allows a variety of approaches
  • The cost of pursuing incorrect approaches has far reaching implications
  • Understanding the complexities involved can be accelerated in a sandbox environment.
  • A concentrated, focused time frame creates more learning than disparate, short videos and webinars

While a classroom environment can’t be leveraged efficiently from the producer’s standpoint, the fact that people responded to the offer shows an ongoing demand for this type of learning. 501Partners will continue to offer the Boot Camp while refining the balance between our on-line learning resources and hands-on classroom teaching.
