Hi Cdnnri, I too have heard of these US professionals offering almost free SAP training and then you have to work with them on contract basis. Well, I am in the same boat as you are. I believe it's foolish to plunge into these desi institutes. But, if you find something like the above where someone will train you and then offer employment on a contract basis, then there's nothing like it. There are two reasons for it. One, you're getting almost free training, and then employment in the field. Second, you will get an experience in SAP. After an year, if you work hard throughout the year, your marketing will broaden automatically cuz. of experience.

Do you know any US Soft. professional, who is offering a sort of free training then asking to work with them on a contract basis. I am currently looking for one. If you know someone then can you please share the information with me? Thanks a lot bro. If you want to get in touch with me, here's my email id:



I am currently working at eBay Inc. here in Vancouver in their IT support centre. I am looking to relocate to Toronto in March. So, if any of you guys here know about someone who's offering the SAP training and then contractual work, then I am in with open arms...

See ya guys, and a good luck..

Preet...

SAP MM and PP
Hi Friends,

There are plenty of opportunities in SAP ERP.
With Engineering background coupled with 4 to 8 years of industrial experience, chances of taking up a job with ERP training is very very high.

After training, 3 to 6 months of self exploration is essential to succeed as functional consultant of SAP.

No training institute could readily make you job ready & fit. Self exploration after training with dedication is a requirement to excell in these high end jobs.

Let us not discourage people who are willing to take that much risk of spending few 1000 CAD for a career.

Cheers

My six cents
According to me even as an ERP Asset Maintenance / Materials Mgmt super user ERP knowledge is just gravy and the more important thing is functional knowledge with education.

In my case I have NON SAP ERP experience due to which I get calls for SAP implementations in Canada but dont make the cut since there are so many people with SAP experience in Canada itself.Employers in Canada are so picky that they just want experience in the same products only.

Due to this I have decided to move onto BI / Data warehousing field and will make a career move in the US next year.

ERP Market in Canada.
Hi friends,

I have gone through most of CDs comments here. I am relatively new to Canada( Came here 2 months back), so I can't make comment on Canadian ERP market expecially for SAP. But I can say that ERP market is not as I expected. Like any other job in Canada, employers prefer canadian experience for getting job. So I feel it takes long way to get settle in ERP job in Canada, but it is not impossible.

Regarding most of the institutes in Toronto who are offering courses, I agree with our friend that most of the people are joining ERP courses without having domain experience or process knowledge and most of the people are taking courses for bundle of modules( say SD+MM+ FICO+BW). it is mostly due to the ill advise given by institutes who want explot the students.

Re: ERP Market in Canada.
Hello,
Based on my own experience, the comments posted below are inaccurate. No employer in Canada NEED to have Canadian experience. If that were the case, outsourcing would not have happened. Forget about these negative comments. If you have self-confidence backed up by good implementation experience in India, you can contact me for a guaranteed consideration with no frills attached. One thing for sure, don't fall for guaranteed job placement advertisements. Thanks

With so many advise and offer for help I now have a completely different outlook .
I was searching for reliable good institutes in Toronto who can provide free training but so far I didn't came across any . Whereas US has ample institues offering free training accomadation and lunch . I had been unable to verify authencity of such claims ( 100 % job e.t.c. ) so far but once I do I will share it will my fellow desis .
If somebody wants to explore more pls visit sulekha.com for opportunities ..
Together we can acheive and grow ...
