Veeam Technical Sales Professional

Since March 13 I am certified as a Veeam Technical Sales Professional or VMTSP! Veeam offers since March 1 2011 two certifications for their partners as part of the new partner program:
a sales tracks (VMSP) and a technical track (VMTSP). Both are offered for free on the Veeam University section of the ProPartner portal which is available for all Veeam Partners.

To qualify for Veeam Silver ProPartner your organization needs to have 1 sales person holding the Veeam Sales Professional certification.
To qualify for Veeam  Gold ProPartner your organization needs to have 2 sales persons holding the Veeam Sales Professional certification as well as two pre-sales or technical consultants having the Veeam Technical Sales Professional (VMTSP)certification.

The VMTSP has 11 modules which cover Veeam Backup & Replication, Veeam Monitor and Veeam Reporter. The modules are presented using Adobe Presenter and learn about architecture, features and benefits, usage examples, deployment  and troubleshooting.   The length of each module varies. The longest one is 48 minutes and the shortest is around 10 minutes.
If you want to go through all the slides of each and every module of the VMTSP-track you will need around 6 hours. A few  modules end with a quiz. To certify you will need to pass 80% of the questions. There are 5 questions in each quiz and you can repeat the quiz as many times as you need. The questions are very easy to answer.

I really liked the modules! They give a clear, good overview of the features of B&R, Monitor and Reporter. Going through the modules is a must for every sales, pre sales  and technical consultant of any Veeam Partner. It will certainly help you in selling, designing, building and supporting the Veeam products and your clients!

The reward for your time is a nice certificate and logo’s as can be seen on the righthand side of this window ;-). Also you can enjoy other benefits as can be seen in the sales program.
