Certifications provide independent validation of your skills that can contribute toward career growth and professional advancement. It also provides a level of trust and assurance in your ability to successfully support your customers.
Lenovo understands the importance of these professional goals and is proud to offer sales and technical sales certification exams and preparation training to our community of business partners.
We offer two types of Data Center certification exams:
This exam is intended for those with at least 1 year experience supporting Lenovo servers, storage and networking products.
This exam is intended for the Lenovo business partner seller with at least 1 year experience selling server, storage and networking products (at least 6 months selling Lenovo products).
Preparation is the key to certification success. We created study guides and organized a series of Lenovo training courses into roadmaps to help you prepare for the exams, which can be accessed in the LPN Partner Portal.
Review the study guides for your exam to get an overall view of the target audience and scope of the certification exam.
Preparation training course can be accessed in the Partner Portal. Once you log in, click the Training tab, then the Training Home link in the top navigation. From there you can find the study guides and training roadmaps under the Roadmaps tab or view the courses by system category under the DCG University tab.
Lenovo certification exams are hosted by Kryterion, our test delivery partner. Exams must be taken in a proctored setting, either at one of Kryterion's 800 testing center or by using the online proctoring method.
The online method requires a quiet environment free of other people and distractions, a computer with a web browser, stable internet connection, and a web camera. Lenovo allows the use of internal (built-in) and external (cable-connected) web cameras for OLP testing.
Certification and practice exams are scheduled through Webassessor, hosted by Kryterion. To schedule a certification or practice exam you must first create an account on Webassessor. Follow the steps listed on the home page to create an account.
