Channel Partner Certification Requirements
Identiv has two separate certification programs. One for each of their Access Control software product lines, which are Velocity and ICPAM.
The Velocity Certification Program:
In addition to agreeing to their Channel Partner Agreement, Hirsch Velocity Channel Partners are required to complete the following courses:
- Velocity Hardware Course
- Velocity Operator Course
- Velocity Administrator Course
- Velocity Installation Course (this course is optional)
All of these courses are available online. Alternatively a student could take the Four-Day Instructor-Led Course, which covers the material in The Hardware, Operator, and Administrator Courses.
Courses are only current if they were based on a version that is currently supported. So for example, if Velocity 3.5 is the oldest currently supported version and training for that product began September 2012 then every course prior to September 2012 is expired.
Additional courses, such as the Basic Cryptography Course and the Identification Card Course, are optional.
If a dealer took the Hardware Course ($300) prior to March 19th, 2014 then they can take the Mx Controller Course ($150), which covers the differences in the new controller, to make their certification current.
If a student wanted to take all the courses online then the total cost would be $1,200.
The ICPAM Certification Program:
To become certified in the ICPAM product, you must complete either the Online ICPAM Course (LCC -070) or the Instructor Led ICPAM Course (STR - I). The Online Course is $500, is an On-Demand course so you may take it at any time and fit it into your schedule. The Instructor Led Course has the advantage of providing hands-on instruction and a classroom / lab environment and costs $2000.
