I think that you can go for almost any course. I’d recommend to have some background in finance for studying SAP FI or SAP CO, so perhaps you shouldn’t go for these modules unless you are willing to make an extra effort of learning at least basics of financial accounting. Apart from FI/CO, you are well-suited to choose any other SAP module. For example, you can get started with our free SAP SD course (sales & distribution).March 22, 2017 at 4:45 pm in reply to: SAP fi co without accounting skills nor experience #13513
Yes, you are right – usually people who go for SAP FI/CO training have some prior knowledge of accounting. I also understand your situation – it must be really painful to realize that you can’t go back and refund your money.
But from my point of view, your situation is not hopeless. I know many SAP FI consultants that only had a degree in information technology (and no experience in accounting) when started their careers in the SAP field. They had to learn accounting in parallel with learning SAP.
My suggestion is that you should try to do a similar thing that these people did – start learning basic financial/accounting skills in parallel with learning SAP. I don’t know where you are located but for sure you can find many free accounting courses online. For example, I recommend to try accounting courses at Coursera.
You don’t need to be an expert in accounting for being and SAP FI/CO consultant. Basic knowledge of financial accounting should be enough to get started. And with more experience with SAP FI/CO, you will also be more knowledgeable about accounting.
I hope that my answer helps and wish you good luck with FI/CO training and career!
Hi! For B.Com graduate a good option could be SAP SD (Sales and Distribution) module. You can check various paid and free SAP SD courses here: SAP SD Training.March 22, 2017 at 4:38 pm in reply to: which course should I join in SAP for earning minimum 40 k per month #13498
Usually, there is no big difference in salary of SAP consultants depending on their specialization (SAP module). So, you can choose any SAP course that is most relevant to your background.
Hi, I think that for FICO it is nice to have some background in finance and accounting. Do you know accounting? Another option is to consider SAP SD (Sales & Distribution) or SAP CRM (Customer Relationship Management) modules.
You should definitely for SAP QM module because you already have some end-user experience. It will help you a lot in the starting the career of SAP consultant!
Unfortunately, I don’t know.
It depends on where you are located. If you are not in Asia-Pacific region, then there is no requirements.
There is no such as thing as “the best SAP module”. There is a demand for each module. Some modules are more popular (e.g., FI or MM) but the competition for these modules is also stronger because there are more consultants for these modules. So, everything is balanced.
It is difficult to recommend you SAP module because you wrote that you have experience with everything (purchasing, finance, bi, etc.). In SAP, it is not possible to know all the modules at the same time.
If you know everything, they you should choose SAP module that you find interesting. It is really important that you are interested in your work as it will help you to perform better.
Yes, you can learn FI module for S4HANA. The topics are going to be mainly the same as for SAP ERP but with few simplifications and changes introduced in S4HANA.
Currently, we don’t have SAP MM video course. Only the course mentioned in the answer above. You are welcome to join the free MM course and use the access to SAP ERP system that came together with your SAP SD course for doing practical exercises.
