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:

100% of partner’s client-facing staff have successfully passed a written exam and a hands on certification exam in 3E Invoice Management, Accounts Payable and General Ledger.  This requires a 90% passing grade.  Preparation for the certification exam consists of attending a 3E Application Boot Camp training which is 120 hours of classroom instruction, with an additional 12 hours of required post Boot Camp eLearning.  Partners are required to re-certify as an annual process or in-line with major 3E enhancement releases.

100% of partner’s client-facing staff have successfully completed 32 hours of classroom instruction, in the 3E Integrated Development Environment (IDE), as well as successfully passed a written exam and a hands on certification exam.  This requires a 90% passing grade.
