SaaS Conferencing and EIM Resale ATP Partner Investment

The following is an estimate of time and out-of-pocket expenses required to achieve certification for the Software as a Service (SaaS) Conferencing and Enterprise Instant Messaging (EIM) Resale ATP program. Training is available through the Partner Education Connection portal (PEC). As a Cisco partner, you benefit by using the PEC, generally saving a significant amount of money you would otherwise invest in travel, training fees, and out-of-office time. These are estimates, in U.S. dollars, for comparison purposes.

Cisco ATP programs represent an investment of time and resources. We highly recommend that you consult with your Cisco partner account manager prior to accepting an invitation to help ensure that there are adequate opportunities in your geography and market.
