This recently refreshed course is free and can be completed in a few hours. Some extra materials are only available under their $20 per month Pro membership, but both the Free and Pro options are an incredible value.
After completing these courses, you’ll have covered the basics. You’ll probably be able to understand existing scripts, do some light modifications on them, and create your own simple scripts.
I learned a lot within this course, and it’s my intention to watch it again now and then.
As for the price, its full official price is $175 on Udemy (and it’s worth it). But if it’s too expensive for you, the platform has very frequent site wide sales, with up to 95% of their catalog. Just by registering to the site, you’ll trigger a sale on every course. If a course still is too expensive for you, search for online coupons, or wish list it and wait for a couple of months.
For the Service Portals: Learn and Understand AngularJS
I recommend the “Learn and Understand AngularJS” course. It’s an amazing seven hour video course. The $175 price is the same as the previous course, but you can apply the same tips to obtain it on the cheap. I obtained most of my courses for $10 a piece.
Certify yourself as a ServiceNow Application Developer
Your final goal could be to get officially certified as an “ServiceNow Application Developer“. The 90 minute exam costs $150 and consist of 60 multiple‑choice questions. To prepare for the exam, download the exam blueprint and review what will be covered.
To my knowledge, they are two available training paths for the exam. The most expensive path is to register for both the “Scripting in ServiceNow” and “Application Creation in ServiceNow” classes. Both are three days on-site events, each costing $2,095.
If you are an autodidact, and you probably are if you’re still reading this article, you can also return to the Developer web site in the Learning Path section and follow the “ServiceNow Application Developer” free text-based course.
There are tons of great learning materials available on the web, in the libraries and in classrooms. The learning path stated above was ideal for me, but depending on your learning habits, you may need to use other resources.
