Red Hat OPEN accreditation

Capabilities that inspire confidence

Partner Accreditations

Red Hat offers 2 types of accreditation for our partners:

Individual accreditation

For employees of Red Hat partners, successful completion of a defined accreditation path within the Red Hat Online Partner Enablement Network (OPEN) training system results in an individual accreditation.

There are 3 individual accreditation roles:

  • Red Hat Sales Specialist
  • Red Hat Delivery Specialist
  • Red Hat Sales Engineer Specialist

Company accreditation

To earn a partner company accreditation, a certain combination of partner employees must be accredited as sales, sales engineers, and delivery specialists. In addition, the partner company must provide Red Hat with other materials, including customer references.

There are 3 company accreditation roles:

  • Red Hat Datacenter Infrastructure Partner
  • Red Hat Middleware Solutions Partner
  • Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure Partner

The Red Hat OPEN program really does provide a wealth of comprehensive information, expertise, training courses, and all courses, as well as labs, are available online.
