The charts below show estimates of time and personal expenses required to achieve certification for the Substation Automation Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) Program. Training is available through the Partner Education Connection (PEC) portal. 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.
These estimates are given in U.S. dollars for comparison purposes. Your organization's investment may vary, depending on geographic factors and the career certifications that individuals may have.
Cisco ATP programs represent an investment of time and resources. We highly recommend that you consult with your Cisco Program Account Manager (PAM) before accepting an invitation, to help ensure that there are adequate opportunities in your geography and market.
Note: If you are reinvited to the Cisco Substation Automation ATP program, you may only incur costs associated with updated courses.
