Grow Your Knowledge and Elevate Your Capabilities With the Datto Academy

By Jeff Reinholtz

Each year, we are faced with new challenges — the projects facing MSPs keep growing bigger and more complex. Tackling these obstacles often means asking important questions:

  • What is driving our business?
  • How are we managing our MSP practice?
  • What do our clients expect of our abilities to successfully fill their needs?

Datto Academy is a learning site made just for our Partners — come here for essential information and training, so you can maximize your Datto devices and services.

The Datto Certification program from Datto Academy increases value for you and your team: It validates broader and deeper skills in specific areas to maintain your company’s relevance in a growing industry, so you can improve your onboarding efficiency and increase marketability. Datto Certifications set you apart from the competition, which helps you to attract new clients to your MSP practice.

Within the Certification curriculum, you will be presented with:

  • a practice assessment
  • various eLearnings
  • a final assessment.

Taking the practice assessment, eLearning courses, and any webinar sessions is recommended but not required to earn your certificate. To earn the certificate, you must complete the final assessment with a passing grade (grades will be listed within the final assessment). You can take the final assessment at any time if you feel comfortable with your level of knowledge.

Once you have passed the final assessment, congratulations! You will be “Datto Certified” in that product, at that level.
