Partners: Make the most of your trip to Las Vegas! HPE Discover


 3 hot partner activities to take advantage of at this year's HPE Discover!

Join Partner Ready Certification and Learning to refresh your skills and help fulfill certification and knowledge credit requirements

  1. Free technical training - Save up to $4,000 (USD)! From Synergy to OneView and across the Cloud, Storage and Server portfolios, we are bringing 20 of our hottest classes to HPE Discover. Once you register for the event you will then have access to view the training class scheduler. Class sizes are limited and fill very quickly, so don't delay!

    Classes range from 2 - 5 days with some classes beginning on Sunday, June 5. Classes begin at 8:30 am and end at 5:30 pm for full day classes. You should plan to arrive into Las Vegas one day ahead of when your class starts.

NEW process to view and register for technical training at HPE Discover:

    1. Technical trainings can only be viewed during the registration process or after you have completed your Discover registration as a partner or distributor.
    2. During the registration process you will receive a prompt asking if you would like to add a PRCL (Partner Ready Certification and Learning) class to your schedule. This is your opportunity to add classes.
    3. If you are already registered, log back in and look for the green button labeled "Edit PRCL". Clicking on the button will then provide the option to sign up for PRCL training classes.

The technical trainings are not included in the "Session Catalog" menu on the HPE Discover web site. The Session Catalog only includes main Discover sessions, which will be published on May 2.

  1. Free certification exams - Save up to $500 (USD)! Why not get certified while attending one of the year's hottest IT events? We are offering two proctored (HPE0) exams onsite for free and 50% off of a third exam! Covered exams include cloud, server, storage, and networking. Software exams are offered at one free proctored exam and 50% off of a second software exam.
