Advantages of Being Technically Certified

WatchGuardONE certifications contribute to your organization's overall WatchGuardONE status. The greater the number of Specializations your business earns and maintains, the greater your rewards. Through the WatchGuardONE program, we reward your efforts in completing competency-based sales and technical certifications in each product area. Each specialization your organization completes earns you greater recognition and margin opportunity.

A key benefit of a technically certified partner is operational efficiency. The ability of certified technicians to swiftly onboard new customers is a key driver in enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty. With a solid technical foundation, certified WatchGuard partners can resolve issues more promptly and tackle a larger number of customer accounts per person. This operational agility can significantly lower response times, increase client satisfaction, and reduce resource strain.
