Welcome to the Complete Salesforce Certified Platform Developer I Course!
I have designed and built this course to be 100% aligned with the official exam Study Guide of the latest Salesforce Certified Platform Developer I release, and I will be updating it on each subsequent release if necessary. Currently, this course fully covers the latest Winter 20 release, and I am updating the course to cover the latest Spring 20 release.
The official Exam Outline has many Sections; each Section has many topics within it and has its own number of questions weighting (in percentage) out of a total of 60 questions. These are the different sections with the number of questions weighting:
Each topic mentioned in the Study Guide under each Section above is covered in this course, and each topic has at least a video lecture that is divided into a presentation, and a demo on the Salesforce environment. Some topics have up to 5 lectures, like the SOQL, SOSL and DML topic that is under Section 3!
I am sharing all the slides in PDF so that you could download them and read them offline, and I am also sharing a lot of reference links in each lecture. These references include links to Trailhead modules, links to the sources I have used to build the slides, links to official Salesforce documentation related to the topic, and links to official Salesforce guides and eBooks.
This course also contains more than 100 quiz questions, none of them are from dumps. I HATE dumps, I have never used them in my IT certifications, and I don't want you to pass this exam based on a bunch of questions from dumps! The questions in this exam are 100% dump free, and they are all designed based on the course content and on real-life scenarios.
Finally, I have been there, I spent hours and hours preparing for this exam, I dissected each and every topic of the Study Guide, and took tons of notes, just like I did when preparing for my other certifications. I guarantee that after completing this course, and after practicing on the Salesforce environment, you will pass this exam, and you will become Salesforce Platform Developer I Certified!
