Salesforce Academy is a recruitment training program organized by Saranen in collaboration with Salesforce, ELY-keskus Uusimaa (Uusimaa Center for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment) and TE-palvelut (Labor Exchange). 

Salesforce Academy offers a unique way to build a career as a CRM expert

Salesforce Academy provides a great way for people with different backgrounds to find and start a new job through expert training that supports your new role. The 6-month program will consist of 20-25 expert-led training days providing you a wide understanding of different Salesforce platform capabilities focusing on Sales, Service and Marketing clouds. Your main focus will be on growing into your new role, at real projects in one of the program’s many partnering companies.


One key element of the training is to prepare participants to pass the highly valued Salesforce Admin certification. By carrying out the Admin certification, you’ll get a broader knowledge of customizing Salesforce, regularly configuring the platform, managing users, and looking for ways to get more out of its features and capabilities. This certification serves as a backbone of your expertise.

Companies are looking for new talents for various job opportunities

There are plenty of career opportunities in the program for different backgrounds. Professional requirements differ depending on the company and the role. You don’t necessarily have to already be an expert to apply – the point of the program is to help you grow into your new role!

  • Salesforce Admin
  • Salesforce Consultant (tech or business oriented)
  • Salesforce Developer
  • Salesforce Training Specialist
  • Marketing Cloud Specialist
  • Pardot Specialist

Companies are looking for various backgrounds – can you recognize yourself in ANY of these?

You have a desire to learn new skills and technologies


Above all, the most important criteria is to have the desire and motivation to develop your own skills and grow into an expert in CRM tasks and in Salesforce.

Background in business OR techology


You might have a technical or business background (in engineering, IT, commerce, marketing, service design, etc.) through your work experience, education, interests or other related projects.

Business development inspires you


You are interested in developing sales, customer relationship management, services or marketing processes. 

Previous CRM or ERP experience


You might already have experience of CRM or ERP platforms and you are familiar with e.g. SAP, Dynamics, Oracle.

But more than anything else, your most important asset when applying is the desire to develop into a Salesforce expert, as well as your motivation to grow your professional skills. Thus, you don’t necessarily have to be an expert at the application stage, and you don’t need previous experience in the Salesforce Ecosystem. Our objective is to find you a role that fits your background and interest the best possible.

Participant testimonials

Hakeuduin Salesforce Academyyn alanvaihtajana. Ohjelma oli minusta erinomainen kokemus; mukaan mahtui kouluttajavetoisia kurssipäiviä, itseopiskelua ja käytännön työskentelyä partneriyrityksessä. Academyn aikana suorittamani Salesforce-sertifioinnit auttoivat mittaamaan osaamiseni tasoa, ja ”sertit” ovat myös arvostettuja alan työnantajien keskuudessa.

Academyn lopussa Accenture tarjosi minulle työpaikkaa Salesforce-konsulttina ja valinta oli helppo. Ala on kaiken kaikkiaan erittäin mielenkiintoinen ja osaajista on kysyntää. Urapolkuja on monenlaisia, ja kun se omalta tuntuva juttu löytyy, on tärkeää olla myös itse aktiivinen oman kehittymisensä kanssa – kysyvä ei tieltä eksy!

-Juha Makkonen, Business & Integration Architecture Senior Analyst, Accenture

Salesforce Academy exceeded my expectations in every way. I started my dream job at Avaus and immediately got into Salesforce work together with my new colleagues. If you are interested in Salesforce, I definitely want to encourage you to apply for Salesforce Academy. While learning how to use a new software, you create an excellent network of other SF experts and immediately get to try the things you learned during training in practice.
