I blogged about the changes to the Action Pack a while back, but there was still a little confusion around the subject, so here's the lowdown:

What is the Action Pack?

The Action Pack is our quarterly toolkit of software and sales and marketing materials, which was created to help you, our Partners, stay competitive, meet your sales goals and grow your business.

How do you get it?

To enhance the value of the Action Pack, from March 1st, all Partners renewing their subscription must take a course and pass an assessment to renew.  Partners must take one specific Microsoft online course from the required Partner Learning Centre course list and complete its associated assessment with a minimum score of 70 per cent. To continue receiving the Action Pack, Partners must pass an assessment every two years. Courses are all 100% subsidised and take no more than 60 minutes. The assessments will take no more than 30 minutes to complete.
