Salesforce is, next to being the number one CRM system, very progressive in their way of training their users and system administrators. Already in 2014 they launched a series of online tutorials that coach beginner and intermediate users called Trailhead. But is it really possible to become a Salesforce expert just by self-study with Trailhead or is a classroom training still required/desirable?
The answer is quite unambiguous and individual dependent.
So, ask yourself the following question: How will-powered are you?
You may take a long time in understanding a concept that, in reality, would take less time when explained by a professional. A training given by highly qualified professionals will provide you the best understanding of the subject.
You may feel lonely at times while self-studying as you do not get to interact with other like-minded students.
You may need to wait for answers after asking a question on the subject or do not get any response at all.
Trailhead provides you so called “happy flow” exercises which in real-life situations isn’t often the case. Learning from (your) mistakes and overcome difficult issues is still the best way to remember subject-matter.
On the other hand, cost is one of the most important factors making self-study a better option. Self-study allows you to study at your own pace and you don’t have to travel to another place for your class and rather study in the comfort zone of your home saving money, time and energy as well.
So, there is no right or wrong choice; it is just the requirements and needs of an individual. In the end, the main motive of these learning ways is the personal choice of the student.
If your personal choice is a combination of self-study and classroom training, look at the options given
