TelePresence Video Master Satellite Authorized Technology Provider Requirements

 

To achieve a TelePresence Video Master Satellite ATP certification, partners must fulfill each of the following defined job roles:

Note: Role sharing guidelines for ATPs are unique and specific for each ATP program. These guidelines sit outside of the role sharing guidelines used for specializations and certifications, allowing a partner to utilize roles that have already been assigned in one or more specialization or certification programs.

Role sharing allows a single individual to fulfill similar roles based upon the ATP and the role. The TelePresence Video Master Satellite ATP Program allows role sharing, in that one individual may fulfill the two required job roles of Account Manager and System Engineer. However, the Field Engineer must be a unique individual. Persons filling roles must be employees and reside in the same Cisco theater where the ATP Partner is fulfilling the program requirements.

Because technology continues to evolve, Cisco ATP requirements are subject to change. Please refer to this site often to help ensure that you meet all current program requirements.
