How It Works

To apply for this accreditation, partners should first verify that their organization has completed the prerequisite certifications (see below).

From there, the application process consists of two rounds:

Before applying, partners should verify that they have at least 3 certified users for each of the following certifications, selected from a team of no more than 5 people for each of the following certifications:

  • Marketing Hub Implementation
  • Sales Hub Implementation
  • Marketing Hub Software
  • Sales Hub Software
  • Service Hub Software
  • Platform Consulting
  • Data Integrations
  • Salesforce Integration
  • Objectives-Based Onboarding
  • HubSpot Reporting

In addition, partners should have at least one certified user for the HubSpot Trainer certification.

You can review the entire prerequisite list of certifications in the Accreditations Prerequisite Learning Path.

In this round, you’ll submit documents that demonstrate your ability to implement customized training and change management plans to large teams. This includes a training and change management plan outline and customized training materials.

Between Rounds One and Two: Your application will be reviewed by the HubSpot team to determine if you will move forward to Round Two. You will be notified by email of your application status and should also be able to check through your Submittable account.

In this round, you’ll participate in two roleplay exercises that will evaluate your ability to design and deliver training to an agency that is struggling to adopt HubSpot. You’ll make a video detailing your training and enablement plan and deliver a live training to HubSpot subject matter experts. You’ll also be asked to provide contact information for a referenceable client for whom you’ve implemented training and/or a change management plan. HubSpot will reach out to that client to solicit feedback about their experience with your organization. Please make sure to get the client’s permission.

After Round Two: Your application will be reviewed by the HubSpot team to determine if the accreditation will be awarded. You’ll be notified by email of your accreditation status and will be able to check via Submittable. 

If you’re awarded the accreditation, you’ll be notified by email. You should then receive an “offboarding” email from the Accreditations team with next steps. You’ll also receive the The HubSpot Platform Enablement Accreditation designation in the Solutions Directory.
