Axis Communications’ Academy has developed into a complete, multilingual and global knowledge centre This year Axis Communications’ Academy is celebrating ten years, a training initiative that since its inception in 2005 has helped more than 50,000 partners to strengthen their network video knowledge and offerings. Axis strengthened its position in market Today, ten years later, we can state that it was the correct assessment. Network video accounts for almost 50 per cent of all new installations of video surveillance globally, and Axis has strengthened its leading position in a market. One of the keys to Axis’ success – the partner network, has grown from about 2,000 to more than 75,000 partners, in some 179 countries. Axis Communications’ Academy has had an intensive decade. During 2005, 696 people took part in classroom training, and this year, the number of participants is expected to exceed 10,000. Since the start, more than 50,000 partners have been trained in the advantages of network security solutions and in Axis’ market-leading cameras and technology in the area. In addition, almost 4,200 people had their network video knowledge validated through Axis’ global certification program, which was launched in 2011. Dedicated to boosting partners’ competence “We are strongly dedicated to boosting our partners’ competence and to providing them with the training they need to be able to sell, design, install and configure security solutions of the highest quality to their customers”, explains Charlotte Löffler Ivarsson, Manager Academy & Technical Information Management. All training is developed within the framework of Axis Communications’ Academy and carried out by Axis’ own trainers. As a result of this commitment to knowledge and learning, Axis Communications’ Academy has developed into a complete, multilingual and global knowledge centre with an offering that meets needs at every level among partners around the world. And this trend is continuing.
