The charts below show estimates of time and personal expenses* required to achieve certification for the TelePresence Video Advanced Plus Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) Program. Training (e-learning) 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 Advanced Plus 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 may have.
Training and Exam Investment by Role
Note: Although training courses are recommended to improve the probability that you pass your exams, you are required only to pass exams to achieve authorization. Therefore, your cost and time investment may be less than stated above, leading to a faster return on investment.
