Become a Channel Partner
The Linux Professional Institute (LPI) Channel Partner program was created for organizations with their own communities and partner groups. A channel partner is a company or incorporated organization that helps LPI find, and optionally, maintain, other partners for LPI’s programs — Approved Academic Partner (AAP), Approved Training Partner (ATP), Hiring Partner, etc. — as part of the company’s regular business activities.

In this analogy, 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.
