Ever want to show off your ShareFile knowledge to the world? Citrix is pleased to announce the release of the ShareFile certification!
Customers and partners who are interested in learning about ShareFile and validating their knowledge are in for a sweet deal; we’re packaging an eLearning course and the certification exam together in an affordable bundle. This path is a low-cost, high-value way to get enabled with ShareFile skills and to validate those skills with a certification.
We’re sure you have questions about the eLearning and the certification, so let’s get to it:
What is the ShareFile certification?
The ShareFile certification consists of a six-module eLearning course and a 36-question exam. The course and exam will cover topics like ShareFile architecture, StorageZones, and integrating ShareFile into a XenApp/XenDesktop environment.
How much does the ShareFile certification cost?
The eLearning and certification are packaged together for $500 USD. However, existing Citrix partners get a 50% discount through the end of 2017. Partners can log into the eLearning site with their Citrix partner credentials and the discount will automatically be applied.
Where do I buy and take the ShareFile eLearning and certification?
The bundled eLearning course and the exam are available through elearning.citrix.com.
I’m a Citrix partner. How does this impact incentive programs like Citrix Advisor Rewards (CAR) and Net New Partner Sourced (NNPS) for ShareFile standalone transactions?
Citrix partners may currently apply their virtualization or mobility certifications to qualify for incentives on ShareFile standalone transactions. Beginning January 1, 2018, those certifications will no longer be applicable for ShareFile standalone transactions. Instead, partners must get ShareFile certified by December 31, 2017, to continue to qualify for CAR and NNPS in 2018 and beyond. Partners with one or more members of their staff certified on ShareFile will continue to qualify for NNPS and CAR incentives.
How does this impact incentive programs like CAR and NNPS when selling Workspace Suite?
The new ShareFile certification does not impact CAR and NNPS when selling Workspace Suite. Partners may continue to use their existing certifications to qualify for incentives on Workspace Suite transactions.
How does this impact specialist bonuses?
There is no impact to specialist bonuses. Partners must maintain a mobility specialization to qualify for specialist bonuses on ShareFile standalone deals.
How long is the certification valid?
The ShareFile certification is valid for three years.
What does this mean for partners who are new to Citrix?
Organizations interested in partnering with Citrix to focus on selling ShareFile now have a clearer path to qualify for incentives. This new certification will enable and validate the skills needed to be a successful ShareFile seller.
