**All links in the post are only accessible by Red Hat Partners**
The Red Hat Online Partner Enablement Network (OPEN) program, provides a variety of role specific training content for sales, sales engineers, and delivery specialists to build skills and earn accreditations that validate those skills. But how can you level up your training game? By taking advantage of “cheat codes” for Red Hat Partner Training.
Cheat Code #1: Inventory
Your inventory is your one stop shop for training resources. Fill it up with expertly curated assets to set yourself up for success from the start. A great place to start building out your inventory is with Partner OneStops, the one-stop-shops to access all available information on a specific Red Hat product. Another option to bolster your inventory is Red Hat OPEN training system channels, like the “What's New for Partners” channel that has the most recent product updates and launches, or the “Enterprise Kubernetes for All Workloads” channel to help build your OpenShift practice.
Keeping your inventory stocked with the latest and greatest resources from Red Hat is the key to staying ahead of the game as both industry and technology continue to evolve at a fast pace.
Cheat Code #2: Power-ups
Having the baseline knowledge on Red Hat products and solutions is one thing, but if you want to elevate your skills and conquer the biggest bosses, we’ve got the sales and technical power ups that will take you to the next level.
The variety of sales power-ups we offer will meet the needs of our partner sellers; regardless of whether you’re new to selling Red Hat, or an experienced pro.
