Backup and recovery company Intronis Inc. has launched Intronis University, a collection of technical and business training and certification resources for channel partners.
The program is accessible within Intronis Essentials, the company’s Web-based partner resource hub.
“Having the tools and talent to build, support, and market cloud backup and recovery services is critical,” said Intronis partner Christopher Cable, project manager of Techworks Consulting. “The Intronis University and partner certification program offer an easy-to-use, step-by-step approach to learning everything we need to know about the technology and how to best market and include it in our service offering.”
The curriculum spans two tracks:
- Technician track: Includes learning modules supported by a growing ensemble of videos, online knowledge quizzes, and content designed to teach channel partners how to effectively use Intronis solutions and support clients with the Intronis ECHOplatform.
- Business track: Consists of sales and marketing focused modules that enable partners to successfully position and promote their backup and data recovery solutions powered by Intronis.
Intronis University also features a new Certified Intronis Partner Technician (CIPT) Program, which helps technicians gain the expertise needed to be more knowledgeable, capable and credible around the value of cloud backup and recovery services, as well as the technical ins and outs of using the Intronis ECHOplatform.
The CIPT Program includes two certifications – Level One and Level Two. Upon successful completion of a set of fundamental “Core Modules,” technicians will be awarded a Level One certification. Level Two certification is awarded to technicians who complete two or more advanced Elective Modules, in addition to the Core Modules.
“Intronis University fast-tracks our channel partners to success by offering them easy access to the training resources and best practices they need to successfully support their cloud-based data protection services and win more business,” said Jasmine Lombardi, vice president of partner success at Intronis. “The aggregated training resources and new Partner Certification Program offered with Intronis University will help our channel partners more effectively use, market, sell, and support their backup and recovery solutions. It’s a valuable resource, and we’re thrilled to offer it to our channel partners.”
