Administrator - Certification Goal


Please be informed that Focus On Force has recently updated this Certification Course to reflect a more modern, stylish and accessible UI.

As you may have observed, we have cleaned up the Main Lesson Page to only show the Main Objectives, Mindmap (also available in Topic pages), and Feedback -- allowing you to have a more clutter-free workspace. We have created separate Topic Pages for each detailed objective which you can access at the left hand side of the page. Upon clicking, you will be presented with the Detailed Objectives under the Section that you have chosen. Additionally, we have put "Topic Progress" indicators which could guide you better on your progress.

For mobile users:
On the Main Course Page, you will see the Lesson Table wherein Percentages and Sections are listed. On the upper right hand side of the table, you will see options to "Expand All" and "Collapse All". If you click on "Expand All", it will give you the option to pick which objective you would like to access.

  3. Robert Nedrow III

    Hello – I can’t seem to find the option to join a study group for the Admin, even though I have purchased the Admin study materials and practice exams. How do I find and join a study group? All I see are past recorded videos for them. Thanks!

    1. FOF Moderator Focus Team

      Hi Rob! Thanks for your inquiry. The last Study Group session for Admin was held on December 21st 2021. Charly was able to cover topics from the Study Guides and all past 18 recordings can be accessed from here (see inside the “Admin Study Group Videos” toggle): .

      Everyone will be advised if and when there will be a new run of sessions come 2022. Happy Holidays.

  5. Hermon Tesfayesus

    I passed my SF exam first try last week! Would not have been possible without the practice exams and the study guides were honestly perfectly thorough. Exam questions are very on par if not harder than I thought of actual exam. Topic exams really helpful as well. I’d also recommend to anyone to use the practice exams frequently to find their own vulnerabilities. That was very helpful to me

    1. FOF Moderator Focus Team

      Hermon, thank you for making us a part of your preparation efforts. We’re glad to know that you have passed the certification. What a way to end the year! CONGRATULATIONS!
