ERP certifications essentially mean getting certified from recognized bodies such as, SAP and Oracle, etc.

1) Getting certified lets the world know that you are qualified for the job at hand. Be it your employers or recruiters or colleagues or a potential client, having a certificate is an indicator that you are professionally trained in an ERP system implementation and can successfully execute it.

Most recruiters on job search networks, such as LinkedIn, weigh candidates’ profiles depending on the certifications and filter among thousands of applications basing on this criterion alone.

2) Being certified can be a testimonial to your ability to learn and implement a system. A certified candidate is perceived to have decent grasping and application skills, as these are prerequisites to getting certified.

So the employer will know that you can hone and upgrade your skills as and when required.

3) The nature of ERP implementations is dynamic and there will be new updates or releases often. Even if you are a practicing ERP consultant, you need to upgrade and upskill yourself to the existing functionalities of the system to stay in the competition and deliver better results. 

4) An ERP certification training process ensures that the candidate is exposed to all components, features and functionalities in the particular module and can execute the particular business process with precision.

Thus an ERP certification helps open doors for you in the global market or improves your current position with your current or a new employer. 

5) Receiving training as a part of certification gives you both theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience to all modules and functions of a business process.

This helps you to efficiently apply the ERP implementations to a wider range within the company, which ensures a guaranteed enhancement in performance. Seamless implementation of an ERP system can have a direct positive impact on the company’s revenues. 

These are the various value points that an ERP certification brings to your professional profile. In the current high-demand market and cut-throat competition, certification is a way to ensure you have that edge over others.

However, having a certification is only of value if you successfully learn the skill and efficiently implement it. So significant efforts are to be made in order to become the skilled ERP implementer that your certificate speaks of!
