Acronis launches MSP Academy for vendor-neutral training
Educational platform addresses key challenges of MSPs
Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, has launched MSP Academy, an educational initiative to equip managed service providers (MSPs) with business and technological knowledge, sales and marketing tools necessary for them to grow.
Acronis set up the MSP Academy following partner requests to expand the training portfolio of the Acronis Academy beyond product training,
Acronis partners that underwent 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 MSP Academy covers various topics, from starting an MSP, running a successful MSP business, marketing an MSP business, and optimising the efficiency and productivity of MSP technicians.
Jon McCarrick, Director of Evangelism at Acronis, said: “MSP Academy offers a customised education experience, allowing learners to explore specific topics or follow a structured learning path.
“The rapidly evolving technology and business landscape requires ongoing learning, and MSP Academy is designed to support the growing needs of MSPs.”
MSP Academy’s curriculum offers training covering all aspects of managing an MSP business. With content structured to cater to the fast-paced changes of technology, bite-sized modules ranging from three to seven minutes are available to deliver impactful insights.
Participants can take an exam to receive a Credly badge to share with peers and customers, showing their qualifications and commitment to continuous learning by earning a degree from the MSP Academy.
Upcoming initiatives from Acronis include delivering 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 programme.
