This is a new plan I am thinking about.

I currently live in the U.S. and since January have been working for an IT recruiting company. They have headquarters in Hyderbad, India. I heard SAP training is very good there. I am going to do research on some institutes. Move there for 6 months and work for my current company while training. Of course my company is in IT recruting so after that they might facilitate in getting me placed in a SAP FI/CO position. I will also practice and give it my highest work ethic to take the SAP certification and achieve it after the training.

Do you guys think this is a feasible plan and should I follow it. I will say that I do have family in India. So if the factor that it is a new country and its not worth it...that is not at all a problem for me.

By the way you guys have been helpful in manyways, especially Craig. Thank you guys!
That would be doubtful. I wouldn't go to any of the private SAP Acadamies in HYD they will just rip you off, however, Accenture, IBM, WIPRO and Satyam all have delivery centres there that do training.

How can I approach them to get training through their companies then?? I have been applying for entry positions with this company to get my foot in and try to get some training once in.

However no luck yet!

I would be very leery of the Hyderbad training schools as well. Maybe there are good ones. I'd research that separately and make a separate posting at a couple of sites on that. We do have an educational forum here as does SDN. I'd also look for some India based forums forums and networks where you might get comments from other Indians that have gone to some of those schools.

If you are already state side, I would look at US based training.

Or horror of horrors... maybe actually train via SAP!!!

The question here is not the training, or where, but how to get a job where you can learn and become a SAP consultant. I do not think that gettting certified will help in gettting a SAP job in the current job market. You need to apply for jobs as a junior consultant or companies whre you are the user/super user of a SAP system.

The other road is with the Accenture/IBM/Infosys consultants...

Always, always, always, always be resourceful. Do your own research before asking. That's the most important lesson for me.

SDN is an awesome network of information. Use it well and you will reap its benefit. I'm using this tool Find SAPhttp://www.findsap.com to refine my search, I hope it helps you too.
