3 Nigerian students excel @ SAP certification

Three students of a Lagos-based New Horizons have emerged successful during an online SAP certification examination.

SAP is one of the world’s biggest Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications with certified specialist earning big digits remuneration either in salary or as consultants.

Chief executive, New Horizons, Mr. Tim Akano made this disclosure, said he was happy to announce that three of his students were successful in the on-line examination where other students from South Africa and other SAP partners failed.

A press statement made available to ITRealms Online, quoted one of the students, Mr. Ben Osasona as saying that their success at one sitting is very exciting and remarkable based on the kind of support facility, ambient environment and warm reception of the officers at New Horizons.

“I had always wanted to be a SAP consultant for as long as I can remember, and New Horizons availed me that opportunity through the eAcadamy programme,” he said.

Osasona also said that New Horizons provided him a quiet and comfortable environment for this exam and study at his own pace.

“The staffs are very friendly and family-like, and New Horizons’ dedication to get me a job placement after the program is quite commendable. Thank you, New Horizons” he said.

Another student who was successful at the examination Mr. Kelechi Ehiogu said it was a wonderful experience.

“I did SAP Financials with New Horizons Ikeja and passed very well. The course content was voluminous and demanding but New Horizons provided the right atmosphere and motivation that stirred me to success,” he said.

As said by him, the main challenge of SAP e-Academy is the fact that one has to do it by himself, because there is no physical teacher to ask questions and to direct one.

“However, I was able to conquer this through determination and hard work. The examination is based on technical and application knowledge of the SAP ERP central component. It is very detailed and lasts for three hours, but if you are thorough with the syllabus and have the determination to succeed, you can always pass. At New Horizons everything you need to start a career in SAP is available,” he said.

In his own remark Dr. Tunde Afolabi said the training was a good experience for him.
“It equally demanded time and devotion, especially considering the fact that he had to study either late into the night after work or in the wee hours of the morning before going to work,” he said.

Stressing that this was also necessitated his buying a broadband internet modem for personal study at home.

“All in all, I was able to complete the online study presentation videos on time” he said.

Dr. Afolabi attested to the fact that the support from SAP e-academy and the mentoring was satisfactory.
