We all learn at different levels; whether it’s a different pace, time, or modality, the common denominator is always to improve and grow together to achieve individual and mutual goals.
For the first time, Citrix is offering annual subscription-based offerings which allow you to select the training you need — when you need it — all wrapped in a single, easy-to-consume bundle. The offerings focus on key trainings and resources for our partners to develop the right skills, achieve the required certification(s) and/ or specialization(s) and retain partner status based on current standing, level and need.
The purpose on these bundles tracks back to the launch of the Citrix Services Delivery Program. We recognize the key to driving successful engagements and satisfied customers is exceptional delivery in services; so we want to make it easy for you to ramp up your services portfolio, become a Certified Services Partner and have access to the latest and greatest content to keep your training up to date.
These bundles also align directly with those partners already investing in Citrix Certifications, excelling in services, and the Citrix Specialist program.
Customer Satisfaction Score
With these bundles, partners will gain access to the Service Delivery Kits and be able to leverage the new consulting manager tool for your projects. Through this tool, you can capture and share your Net Promoter Score (NPS) with your customers. Citrix will be listing these customer satisfaction ratings on Partner Locator as a way to promote those partners excelling in services.
Citrix Virtual Bench
In addition, partners who become a Certified Services Delivery Partner will now be eligible to join the Citrix Virtual Bench. This will provide your company with opportunities for white-label business through Citrix Consulting. As a requirement to be eligible, each resource must take and pass the Professional Services eLearning course* and 1Y0-500 exam. *Included in the Premium eLearning Subscription
