SAP student profileAre you thinking about improving and furthering your SAP skills, getting certified in SAP and advancing in your career? Have you wondered about what it would be like to learn SAP, but don’t know if it’s right for you? If so, why wouldn’t it be?

Modern elearning isn’t about taking endless, repetitive classes that you may never use. If you’ve already earned a degree or two, you might be dreading the idea of “taking classes” again. But in 2018, learning a new skill isn’t like that at all. You don’t have to set foot in a classroom.

Learning SAP online with Michael Management can help you update your skills faster, easier, and at your own pace. The average time our students need to complete one of our SAP certification courses is about 10 days. What will you do in those same ten days that will upgrade your skills and boost your SAP career?


Our SAP Student Profile

The truth is, our “typical” SAP learners come from all over the world and have as many different backgrounds as they have jobs. But they all have one thing in common: they want to improve their SAP skills and advance their careers.

Our student body:

  • Comes from more than 80 countries
  • Signs up for an average of 24 hours of SAP training per year, or 3.9 courses yearly.
  • Takes an average of 10.5 days to complete a certification-level training course
  • Needs just 75 minutes to successfully complete a final exam

Of all our 15,000+ students, 99% of them say that the SAP training they received from us has greatly improved their SAP skills. And 97% of them say they would recommend us to their colleagues.

Students who train with us have job titles ranging from administrative assistant to IT manager to CIOs, and work for medium- to large-size companies large as well as government entities. SAP is the “universal language” they all work with and want to know better.


Our Exclusive SAP Skill Level System

Our SAP training awards you points when you complete lessons (1 point) and pass final exams (3 points.) As you progress, you’ll increase your skill points along with your SAP skill level. Starting as a Rookie with no points, the progression looks like this:

  • 10 points—Associate
  • 25 points—Senior Associate
  • 50 points—Professional
  • 100 points—Specialist
  • 200 points—Expert
  • 500 points—Guru

The various SAP skill levels of all our students is distributed like this:

  • 35% are Rookies
  • 21% are Associates
  • 21% are Senior Associates
  • 16% are Professionals
  • 6% are Specialists
  • 1% are Experts
  • <1% are Gurus

That’s right, only about 1% of all 15,000+ students reach the Expert level and only a small number of students make it to the coveted Guru level.


Why You Should Take SAP Training For Your Career

In our most recent SAP training survey, we asked 865 professionals about why they were interested in SAP training and certification:

  • 21% wanted better job security
  • 21% wanted an increased salary potential
  • 22% were interested in promotion potential
  • 30% were interested in new SAP job potential

We also discovered that 4 out of 10 SAP professionals felt like they didn’t have enough training to do their jobs properly. That’s a lot of people using SAP that really don’t know what they’re doing.

We’ve taught SAP to over 15,000 students and helped them advance their SAP careers with new opportunities. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced user, we offer training in the most basic SAP skills to the new specialization you’re interested in learning.
