*****************  UPDATE  *****************************

It seems I jumped the gun on posting this information.  The program does not go live until March 1, 2011.  I'm sorry about the confusion on my part, but please mark your calendars to try again on March 1st.  Thanks!!!

I just found out about a promotion that is going on that is of benefit for IT Pros out there who care about certification and thought I would pass this along.

If you pass any Microsoft Virtualization exam between March 1, 2011 and June 30, 2011, you will receive a complimentary TechNet Subscription Professional.  You must register and this is only available to the first 1000 subscribers (registrants) so hurry and get registered.

The exams that qualify are the following

  • 70-659, MCTS: Windows Server 2008 R2, Server Virtualization
  • 70-669, MCTS: Windows Server 2008 R2, Desktop Virtualization
  • 70-652, MCTS: Windows Server Virtualization, Configuring
  • 70-693, MCITP: Windows Server 2008 R2, Virtualization Administrator
