Open SAP

This is already a well known platform and this is what Open SAP has to say.

It provides, free courses, accreditation if you complete the courses while they are live are provided free of cost as well. You can see the current and upcoming courses and take up the earlier courses as self-paced courses as per your convinience.

Some of the courses that I would recommend for ABAP developers are as below.

  1. ABAP Development for SAP HANA
  2. Software Development on SAP HANA (Update Q1/2019)
  3. Introduction to ABAP in the Cloud
  4. Developing and Extending SAP Fiori Elements Apps
  5. Building Apps with the ABAP RESTful Application Programming Model

SAP Certification and SAP Learning Hub

SAP Certification and Learning Hub are not free resources.

List of Valid Certifications covers certification in all areas but I recommend below certifications for developers.

  1. C_TAW12_750 – SAP Certified Development Associate – ABAP with SAP NetWeaver 7.50
  2. E_HANAAW_18 – SAP Certified Development Specialist – ABAP for SAP HANA 2.0
  3. C_S4HDEV1909 – SAP Certified Development Associate – Programming in SAP S/4HANA, for SAP NetWeaver ABAP Programmer
  4. C_FIORDEV_22 – SAP Certified Development Associate – SAP Fiori Application Developer
  5. C_CPE_14 – SAP Certified Development Associate – SAP BTP Extension Developer
  6. C_CPI_14 – SAP Certified Development Associate – SAP Integration Suite
  7. C_LCNC_02 – SAP Certified Citizen Developer Associate – SAP Build Low-code/No-code Applications and Automations

Always check the content of the certification, review the topic areas and go for the certification only if these are not covered in any of the earlier certifications that you have done.

SAP Learning Hub is subscription based and it is a personal choice to use it based on one’s learning budget. SAP also provides SAP Learning Classes which are in-person or virtual instructor lead sessions. However, my personal opinion is that these are overpriced courses and there are other value for money options available.
