Acronis, a Swiss-based cybersecurity company, has announced the launch of its new MSP Academy, an extension of its training initiatives to assist other categories of the service provider community.
The MSP Academy’s curriculum is crafted to offer training covering all aspects of managing an MSP business delivered in bite-sized modules ranging from three to seven minutes. Participants can take an exam to receive credentials demonstrating successful completion. The training covers various topics, from starting an MSP, running a successful MSP business, marketing an MSP business, and optimizing the efficiency and productivity of MSP technicians.
“MSP Academy offers a customized education experience, allowing learners to explore specific topics or follow a structured learning path,” said Jon McCarrick, Director of Evangelism at Acronis. “The rapidly evolving technology and business landscape requires ongoing learning, and MSP Academy is designed to support the growing needs of MSPs.”
Upcoming initiatives from Acronis include delivery of hybrid boot camps in collaboration with cloud distributors, providing an immersive learning experience to keep learners at the forefront of industry advancements, and launching new online, hybrid, and offline multilingual training options, ensuring that MSPs across the world can benefit from the program.
The company claims that Acronis partners that went through training and certification through the Academy in 2022 saw a 60% increase in revenue from Acronis product sales and a reduction in support incidents by 40%.
The academy is an educational initiative aimed to provide managed service providers (MSPs) with business and technological knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to excel and grow.
