The exams may be retaken no sooner than 30 days after the last exam date.

To become a member of the ESQ CC program and to take advantage of all its benefits the applicant must successfully pass either the Distinguished ESQ Consultant or ESQ Masters certification.

Expedited Certification

You can obtain a ESQ Consultant Certification(ESQ CC) without taking any exams. You must be certified with another LPM/ PMS. To qualify, you must convert a client from an existing product and stay involved throughout the sales and data migration process. You must be on hand during the initial sales call and on thru to setup and data migration. When the client is up and running in HoudiniESQ you will earn a ESQ CC and commission (see schedule below). The ESQ DCC or ESQ MCC may be taken at anytime.

Benefits

As a independent ESQ consultant you can expect direct access to our engineers and internal support staff, additional training, tools, your own 5 seat copy of HoudiniESQ (Not For Resale), access to the ESQ CC website, and commission.

Sales Quota

The ESQ CC program does not require ESQ consultants to meet any sales quota. We view you as an extension of our professional services team not a sales force.

Fees

The ESQ CC program is free.

Support

Direct access to support personal and our engineers via email, telephone and the ESQ CC website.

Custom hot fixes and patches to address your client issues or bugs.

Important: You may only obtain free support for areas that are covered in your certification. For example if you hold a Consultant certification you are not entitled to free HoudiniEM2 support since you must be a certified Master to use HoudiniEM2. You may however purchase a incident support ticket at any time.
