How to become a Puppet channel partner

We carefully evaluate all prospective Puppet channel partners. After you submit an application, we’ll assess your organization’s business strategy and services capabilities to determine alignment with the program goals and customer needs. If you are selected, you will be invited to meet with a channel sales representative to review program opportunities and details.

Sales and technical certification

After you’ve become a Puppet channel partner at the gold or silver level, we will help your team understand how to sell and use Puppet Enterprise through training and certifications.

  • Sales certification — Our sales certification uses a simple quiz to assess your sales team’s ability to discuss the value of Puppet Enterprise. You are required to have one or two sales certified individuals on staff.
     
  • Puppet Professional certification — Depending on your program level, you are required to have one or two Puppet Certified Professionals on staff. Puppet services are in high demand, and certification will help you add more margin to every sale.
