Common Misconceptions regarding ERP Certification

ERP systems are the pillars of the business world. As the demand for ERP software grows each year, there is also an increased need for skilled consultants.

Getting certification in leading ERP software, such as SAP, Oracle, and Microsoft Dynamics is one way to become a competent consultant. Though getting a certification is quite promising for your career, there are certain things to be kept in mind before joining a training institute. Keep reading to know some of the commonly accepted but unreal notions about ERP certification.

1) ERP certification gives you a job placement guarantee and gets you the highest paid jobs. 

This notion is common knowledge among ERP fraternity and it also held true to an extent till some time ago. But owing to the dynamic nature of the market, an ERP certification alone cannot guarantee you a job. It depends on the efforts you put, the level of expertise you gain and the commitment you show to the field.

A certificate will definitely help, but only to open doors for job applications. It doesn’t mean you are a job-holder and will be paid high without actually delivering results. 

2) ERP certification guarantees a promotion.

If you are already a consultant with job experience and undertook an ERP course to upskill yourself, it does not automatically imply you can expect a promotion right away.
What makes you different after upskilling is how you apply the knowledge gained to improve the project and deliver efficient results. Unless this is the case, getting certified doesn’t promise a guarantee of promotion.

3) ERP certification promises a long-lasting career. 

Getting trained in ERP software may provide you entry into the field but how it plays out for you, in the long run, depends on each individual. A strong competent foundation is what lays a concrete future for you. In the ever-dynamic, ever-demanding and ever-evolving ERP market, one needs to keep themselves updated and upskilled often enough to stay on par with the competition. 

4) Certification in a single module is sufficient.

This held true until some time ago. Now-a-days, companies prefer candidates who possess the knowledge of an entire business process rather than one aspect of it.
At present, the market requires experts who are cross-functional and adaptable across various business processes rather than a single module. To meet the demands of new age-industry, one needs expertise in an entire business process, just not a single module.
