We at Schmooze have been asked about providing a reseller program for FreePBX and our FreePBX Commercial modules for as long as we have offered them. We are now happy to announce the creation of the Schmooze Certified Reseller program.
Since FreePBX primarily competes against legacy PBX products, when creating this new Reseller program we wanted to ensure that Certified Resellers would have the required training and knowledge to build and be the first line of support for Certified FreePBX systems for their clients. This meant changing our Reseller Program to now require Classroom Training and Certification Testing for companies wanting to be Schmooze resellers. New Schmooze Resellers will need to complete classroom training & certification within 120 days of signing up to be a reseller. Existing PBXact resellers will be notified of the new Certification Requirements for their particular situation.
Upcoming Classes are being offered May 21-24, 2013 in Huntsville, Alabama at the Digium Headquarters, and in Phoenix, Arizona in July or August.
