Intelisys Launches UCaaS Solutions Professional Certification Program, Registers 1,000th Trainee
Intelisys Cloud Services University Reaches Registration Milestone After Releasing UCaaS Certification Training Track
Petaluma, CA (June 30, 2015) – Intelisys Communications, Inc., the nation’s leading Technology Services Distributor and creator of the only Cloud university built exclusively for channel sales professionals, met two significant milestones in June 2015, beginning with the launch of the UCaaS Solutions Professional certification program.
Intelisys Cloud Services University (iCSU) registered its 1,000th channel sales professional a week after its third certification track—UCaaS Solutions Professional—became available through CloudServicesUniversity.com.
“As we expand the iCSU curriculum, we see an acceleration in the number of channel professionals who are signing up, becoming certified and gaining an edge in the market,” said Andrew Pryfogle, Senior VP Cloud Transformation for Intelisys. “The rapid climb to 1,000 course registrants demonstrates an understanding of the benefit iCSU certification provides. We are committed to continuously creating content that enables Sales Partners and the broader channel community to up-skill their knowledge and success rate when selling Cloud-based solutions.”
The UCaaS Solutions Professional certification track dives deeply into Cloud-based unified communications technologies that are driving bigger deals and rich contact center wins. It follows the release of the Cloud Computing Solutions Professional certification track in March and the Telecom Solutions Professional certification track in February.
Increasing numbers of Intelisys Sales Partners are noting the positive impact of iCSU certification on their businesses and teams, with some, like the Managed Services, Cloud & Telecom department at Presidio’s Southeast division, making iCSU certification mandatory for team members and new hires.
“Presidio is a national solutions provider focused on IT that provides business outcomes,” says Eric Sanders, VP of Managed Services, Cloud & Telecom Solutions for Presidio. “Intelisys Cloud Services University has become an integral part of our sales enablement training. Achieving Certification through iCSU is a requirement for members of my team, as it provides a solid foundation of cloud solutions and the as-a-service delivery model our clients are seeking. The content is first rate and has helped enable my team.”
As part of iCSU, the UCaaS Solutions Professional Certification Track is self-paced and currently complementary to all IT and telecom professionals, including non-Intelisys Sales Partners. Over the course of 2015, additional certification tracks will be released, including Advanced Data Networking Solutions Professional, Network & Data Security, and Advanced IT Management.
By earning an iCSU certification in one or all of the six competencies, Channel professionals will be better positioned to demonstrate an understanding of the latest Cloud technologies; instill confidence in their clients who will be more trusting with their key Cloud initiatives; achieve a greater degree of success in closing Cloud deals; and gain recognition and a distinct edge in the competitive Cloud services market. Registrants who achieve certification in all six tracks will receive the certification and title of Cloud Master.
