TelePresence Video Master Authorized Technology Provider Program Investment

The charts below show estimates of time and personal expenses* required to achieve authorization for the TelePresence Video Master Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) Program. Training is available through the Partner Education Connection (PEC) portal or Instructor-Led Training (ILT), where available. As a Cisco partner, you benefit by using the PEC portal, generally saving significantly on the costs of travel, training, and out-of-office time.

Cisco ATP Programs represent an investment of time and resources. We highly recommend that you consult with your Cisco Partner Account Manager (PAM) before accepting an invitation, to help ensure that there are adequate opportunities in your location.

Note: If you are reinvited to the Cisco TelePresence Video Master ATP Program, you may only incur costs associated with updated courses.

* Times and costs are estimated in U.S. dollars, for comparison purposes only. Your organization's investment may vary, depending on geographic factors and career certifications individuals you may have.
