SAP Training

Hi,

I am in Zurich. I am planning to attend the SAP training. Can somebody please let me know whether SAP Labs has their own training center in Zurich or not? If yes where it is in Zurich?

Thanking you in advance for your active cooperation.

With regards,
Bunty

Re: SAP Training

Try here. First hit of google.ch

Training in Zürich is in German. For French, you need to go to Lausanne. For English, the UK, US, Singapore, India, Thailand, South Africa...

Re: SAP Training

The main SAP campus is in Regensdorf which is about 15 mins on the train from Zurich Hbf.

The site is in easy walking distance from the station.

Hmm... err... well? What part of that was so confusing?

Here are some tips/suggestions - Try writing the SAP center at Zurich (yes, in English) and ask them if they offer training in English, or even better, try calling them up first thing monday morning.
Alternatively why don't you also ask the UK guys if they offer training in German. May just work you know.

Regensdorf is 20 minutes from ZH HB, and is the first station outside ZH on the S6.

Re: SAP Training

Perhaps being able to find an SAP training centre that teaches in an appropriate language is part of the entry prequalification to the training course?

Re: SAP Training

I was told by SAP coordinator that they don't provide training in English in Switzerland, however, they do have short period training (10 days) in English from time to time. At the end of the training, there is an exam, giving you a certification if you pass it successfully. The price two years ago for one of such 10 days training was 8'200 CHF +VAT 7.6%.

E-learning is always an option.

Re: SAP Training

Hi Guys,

I just dropped a mail to the SAP training center in Regensdorf- thanks for the hint. I also thought about taking part in an online SAP course. I found a homepage at http://www.e-learningcenter.com/sap.htm which looks reasonable.
I need to learn SAP in English to get a job in area of Logistics in central Switzerland. I have deep knowledge in Baan and in Movex but nobody takes care about that.
Do you know which version of SAP is mostly used here in Switzerland?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Regards,
Robert10

Re: SAP Training

Assuming you're talking R/3 (ECC), the versions in use in Switzerland vary between 4.6C and whatever the latest version is - why would it be otherwise? There may be companies using older versions, but unless they've a special deal (like the one I know using 4.6C), they're out of support.

Do you have an actual job offer, requiring you to learn SAP logistics modules in English, in central Switzerland, or is this speculative?

Hi Guys,

For Business Suite the versions to focus on are,
ERP on SAP ECC 6
SRM on SRM 7.0
CRM on CRM 7.0

For NetWeaver,
CE on 7.2
PI on 7.11
EP on 7.0 EhP 1
Solution Manager on 7.0 EhP 1

Re: SAP Training

Dear NotAllThere,
Thanks for the quick reply. I don't have a job offer now so the question is theoretical. I think that lack of SAP knowledge is one of the main reasons I'm not invited to many interviews (other is of course lack of fluent German which I continuously improve). That's why I'm about to take part in an SAP course, the sooner the better. Thanks.

I'd venture that any form of training in useless in the job market without any relevant practical experience to back it up, unless maybe cross-training from a broadly similar product like BAAN or Oracle Financials.

Re: SAP Training

No, there are no English-based SAP trainings in Switzerland (for the simple reason that it is not the main work language here). Large multinationals either organize their own trainings, or send people to London, Amsterdam, etc.

Note that in order to participate to the training, you need either a client number or a consultant number.

Finally, an SAP training without project experience will not carry much weight... it will cost you a bundle (about 2000 CHF per week training, not including travel costs and hotel; and you would need a cycle of 3 or 4 trainings).

That's covered.

Re: project experience - I was thinking the same, but I don't think it's relevant for Robert10. He seems to be after end-user training, rather than working in IT.

SAP also offers some courses in English in Zurich
