ServiceNow ATP Program Guide ATP Program Requirements The ATP Program Requirements are broken down into four requirement areas: Partner, General Training Program, Instructor, and Training Facility (as applicable). Putting these requirements in place ensures us that the customer will receive a quality experience from both ServiceNow and our ATPs. Some ATPs might not have a dedicated training facility. In this case, ServiceNow expects the partner candidate to provide detailed information around the facilities it may use in the case of public training. Partner Requirements ServiceNow is seeking to add ServiceNow Authorized Training Partners (ATPs) around the globe. To be considered, partner candidates must meet the following criteria: •
•
Experience with offering IT education services. ServiceNow recommends the partner employ a minimum of one half-­‐ to full-­‐time ServiceNow Certified Instructor (CI). The ATP will be required to update ServiceNow regularly with a list of its current CIs. ServiceNow encourages ATPs to hire full-­‐time instructors, but will allow ATPs to work with freelance CIs under the following conditions: • The ATP must register the contract instructor for the specific product curriculum they will be teaching. • The contract instructor can only deliver training at an ATP location for the product curriculum that he/she is certified to teach. • Have ongoing access to a training facility that supports delivery of ServiceNow Authorized curriculum. • Candidate must be willing to meet all ATP requirements defined below.

•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•

Evaluation Data This section of the document outlines how ServiceNow uses and reacts to evaluation data by students in the online course evaluation system at the end of every class. All students must be encouraged (though not required) to evaluate the class using the evaluation system. A minimum compliance of 60% of respondents compared to the number of books ordered by ATP is expected. ServiceNow will use this evaluation data in the following ways: •
•
•
•
We require instructors to maintain a 8.2 (out of 10) overall rating in the online course evaluation system and maintain this rating for a set of classes in order to move to the next level of courseware (e.g., advanced courseware in the curriculum). In the event of poor evaluations, we study the entire class, as well as groups of related classes to discover trends and weaknesses. (We do not necessarily consider a single student, or even a few students’, poor evaluations as indication of an overall problem with instruction.) We contact instructors in the event of identified patterns in order to resolve any issues that may be arising in the classroom. In the event of catastrophic evaluations, we would contact the instructor and suspend their teaching certification in order to identify and fix problems before resuming classroom instruction. In certain circumstances, it may be required that an instructor perform additional tasks in order to maintain their certification credentials. This could include but would not be limited to attending a training skills course, providing a webinar to demonstrate technical understanding, or performing a team teach with a seasoned instructor to provide tips and feedback on instruction. © 2015 ServiceNow, Inc.

ServiceNow ATP Program Guide Master Instructor Program This section of the document outlines alternatives to stand-­‐up certification resources outside of ServiceNow employees on both a regional and within a partnership level. ServiceNow Partner Master Instructor Program (PMI) The goals of the Partner Master Instructor Program are to enable our partners with many instructors to cut the costs for instructor certification through a detailed plan of self-­‐certification, with a trade-­‐off of an expanded time commitment. An ATP may have one Certified Partner Master Instructor, or one for each curriculum. The PMI will be able to put their instructors through a rigorous program for instructor certification with the appropriate communication and approval by ServiceNow. This section outlines how to become a PMI, and how to process and certify instructors within the partnership. PMI Curriculum Designations A partner instructor may become a PMI in one or more of the following curriculum paths: •
•
ITSM (System Admin, Advanced, Asset, etc.) Application Development (Scripting, App Dev, etc.) If a PMI is not proficient in one of these areas, they may team up with a subject matter expert within their organization to conduct stand-­‐up certifications. For instance, if a PMI is a ServiceNow System Administration expert but does not know Scripting in ServiceNow to a sufficient depth, they may still conduct certifications for that curriculum as long as they are teamed up with a SME during the certification. Please refer to each curriculum section for details on which courses are covered in these paths. PMI Requirements In order to become a Partner Master Instructor, please contact [email protected] for more information. Conducting PMI Certifications Once a PMI has been identified and approved by ServiceNow, they may conduct their own instructor certifications for instructor candidates who are employed by the ATP. The process for conducting instructor certifications is outlined in the PMI document. © 2015 ServiceNow, Inc. All rights reserved.

In most cases, participants are required to review a TTT video reviewing the architecture and methodology of the curriculum for the course they are certifying to teach. Certification Test: A professional exam (online or at a testing center) required as a step in the instructor certification process. Certification Path: The steps needed to become a ServiceNow Certified Instructor. Every step must be completed successfully to complete the instructor certification process. Course Evaluation System: An online evaluation form. Each student must complete an evaluation of the course at the end of a ServiceNow Authorized Training class.

ServiceNow requires each certified instructor maintain an 8.2 (out of 10) overall rating in the Course Evaluation System. Instructor Profile: The recommended level experience for candidates seeking instructor certification. Candidates should meet experience requirements in technical and training areas. The Instructor Profiles are listed as a part of the Instructor Qualification form.

Each candidate is evaluated on the following skills to determine their readiness to move forward for in the instructor certification process: •
•
•
•
Experience with the software he/she intends to teach. Training delivery experience. ITSM/ITIL experience. Recommendations will be made for next steps to each candidate based on their Instructor Qualification form. Overall Rating: The score (rating) an instructor earns at the end of a training class. Overall refers to the whole-­‐ containing the score for course book, location, and instructor portion of the evaluation form. We believe the instructor should add value to the course materials and compensate for any deficiencies in the course materials. Review Team: The individual or group of individuals managing the stand-­‐up certifications. The review team may be one or more members of ServiceNow’s Training team or a Master Instructor. Stand-­‐Up Certification: The term used to describe the final step in the Instructor Certification process. An instructor candidate delivers (presents) a unit(s) of a course to a review team.

•
•
How do I order materials? Once approved as an ATP, information for ordering printed materials from our eStore will be included in your Welcome Letter. What are the shipping times and costs? Our printing vendor has distribution facilities in Eastern Canada, UK, Australia, and Singapore. Every attempt will be made to print/ship materials from the nearest location. Materials are usually shipped out within 24 hours of the order, however may be impacted by regional holidays.

At this time, the course materials for 3 day classes is $300 per manual. The course materials for 2 day classes is $250. Other courses are in development and additional information can be found by contacting [email protected] Do I need to order materials for instructors? ServiceNow does not have an annual program fee, so the ATP is required to order the course materials from their eStore account for instructors at the normal pricing. •
Do I need to order training instances for both the Admin and Scripting courses? Do I need instances for both students and the instructors? The instances are spun up by the representative of the ATP, typically the certified instructor. ServiceNow provides the linkage from the ATP EC2 account to the master training instance through our agreement with Amazon and the EC2 program. ServiceNow has built the training instance to include the necessary data for all customer training courses into a single instance. Each student is required to have their own instance for each of our classes. •
•
What are the lead times on training instance provisions? We recommend that you provision the instances for a class at least 24 hours prior to the course, and leave them on as a benefit to the training attendees for at least 24 hours after the course ends. How do I ensure my instructors are working with the correct instructor materials, to help them prepare for each course? ServiceNow has a shared folder for instructors to access the PowerPoint slides and Instructor Guide for each of our courses. There is also a series of webinars from past train-­‐the-­‐trainer updates discussing the course architecture, flow, labs and other useful information to help you prepare to deliver the course. © 2015 ServiceNow, Inc.

How do our customers access the survey at the end of the course? We would like to ensure they do this prior to leaving on the last day of each course. ServiceNow uses Metrics That Matter through our agreement with Knowledge Advisors. Both the instructor and ServiceNow receive the results of that survey mechanism. How will we be made aware updates to course materials and will reassessment and authorization be necessary for each release? The training team will notify the personnel noted on the application form and all instructors who are current in their certification of new releases and necessary updates to the certification exams as appropriate. We expect that instructors will recertify on a maintenance exam annually or possibly bi-­‐annually in the future. Is there a formal release schedule for training materials? Our materials are primarily mapped to product releases although early stage revisions and modifications to the materials are likely to happen more frequently to classes that are less mature and we feel could continue to be improved based on customer and partner instructor feedback. I would like to be able to market new training releases and their content to our customers ahead of time? How can I get access to this type of information regularly? We will announce through our own channels as well as the standard ServiceNow marketing channel product and curriculum releases so that you can adequately communicate and market to your customer base and prospects. © 2015 ServiceNow, Inc.
