Salesforce Certification Release Cycle 2022? You might have been thinking what are these Salesforce-release notes if you are a newbie to Salesforce. Yes, it’s true. The term Salesforce-Release notes is a keyword for the people who are actively working/using on Salesforce. I guess most of the people who are reading this article might have an idea about release notes.

Now, you might have been thinking why this guy is talking too much about release notes. I like Salesforce very much! The reason is their consistency to provide more and more features to their customers without impacting business, and Salesforce has three major releases per year, and in each release or version, they offer many new features/updates for existing features.

Maintaining Certifications in Salesforce Certification Release Cycle 2022


You must complete Trailhead maintenance modules relevant to your Salesforce certification(s) in order to keep your certification(s) current. Every year, one maintenance module must be completed for all certifications. You may check your certification status on your “Trailblazer.me” profile once the release modules are available, and you will get an email with all the information you need to perform your maintenance.

Further, while these email reminders are useful, you should not rely only on them; it is your obligation to complete your maintenance modules before the given date. If you don’t finish your maintenance module(s) by the deadline, all certifications associated with that module will expire or, in certain situations, be suspended.
