Thanks for your interest in becoming a Salesforce Fundamentals educator! This page will provide you with all of the details you need to start teaching. We're so excited to have you apply for the Educator Badge and Program! Please note this application is for educators at universities, colleges and workforce development organizations, not Community Educators.

This course is designed as a great primer for Salesforce skills and makes a pathway for any of the other tracks: whether that’s becoming a marketer or an admin, developer or sales manager. This course requires no previous knowledge or experience of Salesforce. This makes the course great for students early in their business, technology, or creative major. Basically, it’s the foundation students need to pursue any career in the Salesforce ecosystem!

The course teaches students the following:

  • Business value of each Salesforce application
  • Basics of the security and data access model
  • Fundamentals of user management
  • Phases of a Salesforce implementation
  • Business process automation
  • Reporting requirements and considerations

Once you've completed the path to teaching, you'll become an approved educator for Salesforce Fundamentals with the Trailhead for Students program. Keep in mind, this is different than our professional Certified Instructor program – but will provide you with additional resources for teaching Salesforce Fundamentals to students. Once approved, you'll receive the following additional materials:

  • Salesforce Fundamentals Trailhead badge
  • Instructor Slides + Facilitator Guide
  • Exercise Guide
