Become a Channel Partner
Linux Professional Institute’s Channel Partner Program was created for organizations with their own communities and partner groups. A channel partner is a company or incorporated organization which helps LPI to find and, optionally, maintain other partners for the AAP/ATP/Hiring/Sponsor/etc programs as part of their regular business activities.
In a sense, the Channel Partner Program borrows its concept from the IT market traditional distribution channel business, with value added distributors and resellers, where the Channel Partner can be compared to a Value Added Distributor, which can sign up many resellers to a technology vendor (normally a software or solution provider). The main difference here is that instead of signing up resellers, LPI Channel Partners simply sign up — and, optionally, service — other partner types on behalf of LPI.
