Cluster Learning, a specialist channel-focused global learning and services provider, today announced that the company has been awarded a new business focused training certification from Cisco Systems, Inc. The company is now a global Cisco Authorized Business Learning Partner (BLP) and is thus recognised as qualified to provide Cisco channel partners with training that enables them to be more effective in selling business-relevant technology solutions.
The Cisco Business Learning Partner accreditation is a formal recognition of the investment that Cluster Learning has made to help Cisco and its partners to achieve their respective business objectives. Cluster Learning offers a broad range of Cisco sales training courses that enable partners to understand the business relevance of technologies. These sales themes include Business Relevance; Selling Cisco Architectures; Smart Business Architecture; Cisco Certification Courses and Introduction to Cisco technology courses.
Under this initiative, Cluster Learning will work closely with Cisco to further build on the success and track record of its Partner Enablement and Channel Effectiveness training.
“We are pleased to add Cluster Learning’s extensive portfolio of Partner Enablement and Channel Effectiveness training to our Business Learning Partner program,” said Andres Sintes, Senior Director of the Worldwide Learning Partner Channel at Cisco. “We are leveraging their track record and experience in working with the Cisco channel to help us all achieve our goals in Cisco’s new financial year.”
In addition to offering Cisco Channel training, Cluster Learning works with Cisco channel partners to boost their profitability from their Cisco relationship by offering audit, mentoring and coaching services to channel sales, pre-sales and business managers.
“Cluster Learning is very proud to be part of Cisco’s Business Learning Partner Program, as we are committed to helping Cisco resellers find and close new market opportunities at higher margins,” said Matthew Hathorn, CEO of Cluster Learning. “Gaining this new Learning Partner accreditation formally recognises the value that we have been adding to the Channel for many years.”
