Adobe Solutions Network
Currently, there are three partner membership programs within the Adobe Partner Connection:
The Solution Partner Program is designed for companies that provide solution-based sales, system integration, services, or extended products based on Adobe technology. Three levels of membership - Bronze, Silver, or Gold provide access to valuable technical, sales and enablement resources, including software, communications, marketing and support. Partners must apply and meet requirement criteria before being accepted into the program.
The Training Provider Program is designed for individuals, businesses and academic institutions that provide training for Adobe products. Partners must meet requirement criteria to be granted membership as an Adobe Authorized Training Center (AATC) or Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI). Benefits include pre-release software, educational materials, promotional opportunities and communication to help support Adobe customers.
The Print Service Provider Program is designed for cross-media, design and commercial printing companies with electronic prepress capabilities, color prepress houses, service providers, digital printers, photo labs and sign shops with digital output capabilities, who deliver a complete printing solution for customers who use Adobe software.
Membership is available at the Basic and Authorized levels worldwide, and an additional Premium level in North America. As of February 4, 2010, Adobe has discontinued the Print Service Provider Program.
