Take Care

Dr Sue Petratos


To all members of the SAP Academic Community in Africa


Dear all,


Greetings from a locked-down South Africa.  I trust and hope that wherever you are, you are keeping safe and shielding yourself and your loved ones as much as possible from the scourge of the current pandemic.


Since so many universities are currently closed or on lock-down, I would like to draw your attention to the corporate press release from SAP Headquarters in Germany. Of specific relevance is the paragraph referring to free access for students to SAP training material AND one certification. Below is some more information and hyperlinks on the specific offer, plus other free education resources made available to the academic community. In summary:


  • Academic students interested in preparing digitally for a career in the SAP ecosystem and studying at a member university in the SAP University Alliances programs can register for the SAP Digital Learning offering for academic students – enablement content as described in the Learning Journeys
    • SAP S/4HANA Scope and Business Processes
    • SAP S/4HANA Cloud – Finance
    • SAP Success Factors Employee Central
    • SAP HANA Modeling
    • Access to Training Systems
    • 1 exam attempt to SAP Global Certification
  • Pupils and teachers facing school closures and other disruptions access learning courses in the SAP Young Thinkers program. For German speakers, HPI Schul-Cloud is also available.
  • Anyone interested in learning about leading technologies, the latest innovations and the digital economy, choose one of our Open SAP Massive Open Online Courses.


(Should you or your student experience difficulties with any of the above, there is a help function at  https://training.sap.com/help-center)


These are also free Experience Management (Qualtrics) tools available for lecturers and teachers in the updated SAP XM Academic Community Learning Room.
