Hi - does anyone know of any tests that Marketo has similar to SF's Trailheads or if there are any recommendations for vendors that have a testing ability to measure someone's knowledge in Marketo?
Thanks I'm looking for something more general knowledge testing for campaign managers, not sure it makes sense for them all to get certifications bc they're not in it 100% of the time...
I still think the Marketo Educational resources will help with self-guided learning, a prerequisite to ensure your users have the knowledge they need to be active in your instance. You could have a super user (or whoever is primarily responsible for your Marketo instance) create a questionnaire to measure competency.
Joe Reitz gave a good presentation at Marketo Summit which offers advice on training for all knowledge levels, as well as additional training resources. You can review the deck here: AWSome Sauce: 10 Marketo Life Lessons From An Enterprise Org
How does this compare to Marketo's own instructor-led training? (Core Concepts, etc...what used to be called Foundations)
I believe it's as good or better, to be honest. Six Bricks is the brainchild of LeadMD, a premier partner with Marketo. I only really got to see the offerings in beta, but last time I did, they were working on a Marketo simulator to use for testing purposes. It was pretty slick.
When I was preparing for my MCE I took some posts that are still on the Community and formatted them into a small quiz Marketo Practice Exam - Google Sheets
You can find the original questions by searching the community for them.
