Through its award-winning Jenne University, Jenne is offering two easy ways Business Partners can attain or renew their ACIS-SMEC certification: First, through its partnership with Avaya exclusive testing center Pearson VUE, Jenne is offering the required ACIS exam on the last day of its five-day Avaya IP Office Professional Certification Implementation Workshop — which is designed for new reseller customers or customers requiring additional personnel to be trained. Second, for resellers who already attended the mandatory five-day course but need to renew certification, Jenne is offering a two-day ACIS Fast Track course, with the opportunity to take the required exam on the second day.
“We are committed to helping our resellers remain competitive with leading communication solutions from Avaya,” commented Jim Karaffa, director training and technical services, Jenne. “Our new Avaya course offerings, including the testing capabilities we are able to offer through our relationship with Pearson VUE, are unique in distribution.
