Online Umbraco training - 1 free seat a year
Keep your Umbraco skills up to date and earn certification points without worrying about the cost.
You decide which online course you, or your colleague, needs to go on. Maybe you'll give it to an experienced developer who needs to build further on his skill-set? Maybe you have someone who's completely new to Umbraco who needs to get taught the Umbraco Fundamentals (a course worth $1,415)?
It's completely up to you who you choose to sign up for this once a year free online course - but do remember to take advantage of this feature!
It will not only keep your skills sharpened by knowing exactly what the newest best practises in Umbraco are, it will also help you earn more certification points, ensuring you maintain the required certification points of minimum 400 points.
Access to Umbraco TV - 5 free subscriptions
Expand your Umbraco skill-set at your own pace, at your own desk - or on the train!
When you sign-up for the Certified Partnership you also get free access to 5 TV subscriptions (worth $1,559/year).
With each subscription you get access to the entire TV collection filled with useful step-by-step Umbraco video tutorials made by Umbraco HQ. This way you can ensure that you, or a new team member of yours, knows how to take advantage of all the fantastic Umbraco features.
Umbraco Uno support for all of your projects
After our Uno onboarding and training you’re not left alone - quite the opposite. You will get a direct contact to our Uno specialists who will be there to help support you during development. Does your client want something you’re not sure how to build or is something not working like it should on a project?
As a Registered Partner we’ll make sure to help you deliver the best websites possible to your clients - every time.
Umbraco Cloud Partner discounts
As both a friendly incentive and an appreciation for using Umbraco Cloud, we offer our Certified Partners the best advantages of Umbraco Cloud Partner Discounts.
As an Umbraco Certified Partner the discount is applied automatically when you create new Umbraco Cloud projects through your official Partner Account.
One-to-one Umbraco Cloud Counseling with an Umbraco HQ specialist
Maybe you're already on Umbraco Cloud - maybe you're not too sure if it's relevant for you?
As an Umbraco Certified Partner we offer you the best guidance on your new Umbraco Cloud project. We’ll arrange a personal web-meeting with an Umbraco Cloud specialist to ensure you get the most out of Umbraco Cloud. Hit our Umbraco HQ specialist with any project specific questions or concerns and he'll be able to give you the best possible guidance.
Be updated with all things Umbraco on Partner News Channels
As a Certified Partner, you will automatically receive our Partner newsletter or simply Partner News. Unlike our regular newsletter, uNews, this newsletter has our partners in focus and as the title reveals, contains more partner relevant information. It will also include commercial content to help assist you in explaining the benefits of Umbraco to your clients, and will give you the latest information on products, marketing material and offers.
That's not all. You will be invited to watch the Partners Newscast. Previously only available to the Umbraco Gold Partners, now Certified Partners are also able to watch along when Anders Trans Sørensen, the head of Umbraco partner team, invites Umbraco HQ members to talk about the upcoming plans for the Umbraco core, Umbraco Cloud and the Umbraco partner programs. This newscast is a great opportunity to make sure you’re up to date and get the most out of everything we offer you as a partner.
Direct contact to an Umbraco Partner Manager - including account management
To help you get the most out of Umbraco, you’ll get direct contact to one of our Umbraco Partner Managers. They are there to help you if you need more information about your partnership or our products and services.
They’ll also help you with sales materials and pitches, as well as any help we can give you to better scale your business with Umbraco.
Exclusive Partner Discounts
