What is Trailhead?

Trailhead is an easy, fun way to learn Salesforce. Whether you’re an Admin, a Developer or new to Salesforce, there’s something just for you on Trailhead.

Trailhead is an online learning system that consists of a series of interactive tutorials. They have modules which consist of various learning topics. These modules are then broken up into units. Test your knowledge by completing a quiz or a challenge, and you’ll earn badges and points to celebrate your achievement.
