Please be sure to take the Sales and Presales GLPs and assessments before starting the Implementation TOD?
The Sales and Pre-Sales assessments are prerequisites for this course. This training provides the basic foundation for Big Data. The implementation TOD Boot Camp does not cover the Big Data basics so the sales and pre-sales GLPs and assessments should be taken first to ensure success. It counts towards the Sales and PreSales Specialist requirements for the upcoming Big Data Specialization.
