Why did Riverbed evolve its learning curriculum?
Traditionally vendors have introduced training content to educate their customers and partners on their specific products. In certain technology areas, there have been vendors that have taken that to the next level and educated the industry on their area of expertise. The introduction of the RCPE Learning Paths represents Riverbed stepping into the white space around digital performance and asserting itself as the only credible place for the industry to learn and build a career as a digital performance professional.
What has changed?
RCPE is a total replacement and up-level from the previous Riverbed training portfolio. With the new learning paths, students start at a common foundation (RCPE-Foundation) to get a firm understanding of the fundamentals and underlying customer challenges around digital performance. From there, students have the option to specialize across 5 solution areas starting with the RCPE-Associate level accreditations which are delivered free-of-charge to Rise partners on Riverbed’s Partner Learning Portal. For engineers who want to further build out their expertise, we have introduced the RCPE-Professional level certifications. These are fee-based instructor led courses and certifications, and partners can use the generous dividend pay-outs from Riverbed Rise to help subsidize and fund.
In addition to partners being able to fund training with the dividends earned under Riverbed Rise, learning achievement is also rewarded with dividends. So this is a great way for partners to earn extra rebate dollars, business investment fund dollars, or even get them across the finish line towards attaining their partner level under the program.
Who qualifies for RCPE training and how can I get started?
This is an exciting time in our industry. Networks are getting faster, data is growing exponentially, and people are more connected than ever before through an increasing number of devices.
