Atlona has announced a milestone in its online training programme with its 100th dealer completing and receiving certification in the programme’s 100-level curriculum. The certification program, which was launched in September of last year, was only available to the company’s direct-buying dealers.  Atlona also announced that in addition to opening its 200-level courses, it is also making both course levels available to all its dealers, whether they buy direct or through distribution. “Reaching 100 certified dealers in such a short time is significant because it’s representative of our customers’ high level of enthusiasm and commitment,” says Ken Eagle, the company’s director of training and sales engineering. “The level of participation has exceeded our expectations, and we’re excited to see the reception to our 200-level programme.” The Atlona Academy is a free programme for domestic and international dealers and partners to increase their knowledge of Atlona products, learn to implement new products, design systems, and strengthen their business. The Academy’s three levels of the program are made of lessons that contain tutorials and exams. After each exam is passed, the dealer moves on to the following lesson. The 100-level courses within the first tier of the programme focus on foundational technologies. Upon completion of the first tier curriculum, dealers and partners earn their certification and title of Technology Specialist. They then move on to the 200-level curriculum, which focuses on each of Atlona’s product groups and advanced troubleshooting. Dealers and partners who complete the second tier of the programme receive Certified Technologist recognition. Availability of the final tier of the Academy, the 300-level courses, has yet to be announced. www.atlona.com
