SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland, Jan. 17, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, is pleased to announce the availability of the 2023 Acronis #CyberFit Academy Certification program. The program will provide updated training for Acronis partners to improve their success and overall increase profitability. Partners who take training, on average, utilize twice as many Acronis products and require 30% fewer support requests, which in turn increases revenue and reduces support costs, while also increasing customer satisfaction.

The latest Acronis #CyberFit Academy curriculum features 22 new certification courses, including five recertification courses which reduce annual technical certifications from over 20 hours to less than three hours. The goal of the program is to recertify existing partners and onboard new partners. When certified, partners exceed revenue goals with 104% more profit and 10% additional workloads achieved per technician.
