Distinguish Your Brand and Build Client Confidence

The Thomson Reuters Elite Partner Program helps 3E and ProLaw Implementation partners excel by offering comprehensive certification programs. By successfully completing the mandatory training and certification exams, certified 3E and ProLaw Implementation partners demonstrate the highest level of knowledge and expertise, demonstrate their commitment to our mutual clients and show willingness to collaborate at the deepest levels. At this time, certification programs are only available for 3E and ProLaw.

3E Certification

Implementation partners achieve 3E certification at the company level. Partner companies become certified when 100% of client-facing resources have completed comprehensive training and testing.

The levels of 3E certification are:

  • Certified 3E Application Implementation Partner
  • Certified 3E IDE/Technical Implementation Partner

Requirements for 3E Certification:

  • An Implementation Partner Agreement
  • A minimum of three full-time employees
  • Valid client references
  • Proof of solvency and insurance
  • Skills in an area that complements Thomson Reuters Elite's need
  • Successful completion of partner training and testing in applicable area(s) within timeframe designated in partner agreements. Fees apply.

Opt-Out Testing

Individuals that have a strong 3E skill set may be eligible to register for certification testing without attending training courses. Policies and fees for opt-out testing should be reviewed with a Thomson Reuters Elite Partner Program representative prior to registration.

Recertification

Recertification is required as defined by Elite and will be limited to an annual process or in-line with major enhancement releases. The goal of recertification is to ensure resources maintain product knowledge. Additional charges will be assessed with recertification and may require additional training and/or testing.

 

ProLaw Certification

Implementation Partners whose partnership includes ProLaw must become certified. There are three levels of ProLaw certification: Technical Provider (cloud), Application Services, and Technical Services. Implementation partners may pursue any level of certification, but Application Services Certification is a pre-requisite for Technical Services Certification. Implementation partners achieve ProLaw certification at the company level. Partner companies become certified when 100% of ProLaw client-facing resources have achieved comprehensive certification.

  • Technical Provider Certification requires successful completion of 16-20 hours of training and Product Overview Class.
  • Application Services Certification requires successful completion of 70 hours of one office training, ProLaw Online Education or Product Overview Class, and ProLaw Process Management (PPM) training.  Additionally, trainees must score at least 90% on a certification exam on each portion.
  • Technical Services Certification requires successful completion of the Application Services Certification (above), plus 56 hours of Technical Implementation Training and a score of at least 90% on the corresponding certification exam.
