Each month in the U.S. partner newsletter, Julie Golding delivers a message for Microsoft Partner Network organizations who hold one or more Microsoft competencies, offering information and recommendations to help those companies take advantage of their membership benefits and differentiate their businesses in the marketplace by showcasing their expertise.
Over the next few months, many of our partners who have one or more Microsoft competencies will need to renew their membership in the Microsoft Partner Network. At that time, your company will need to meet the most current competency requirements. With many competency changes coming in November (detailed in the August 2012 Competency Roadmap), the new Microsoft Competency Exam Pack offer is here at the perfect time.
Purchase an exam pack at up to 40% savings, plus get a free retake for each exam. After purchasing a pack, you can hand out exam passes to individuals within your organization that need to get certified. Whether you're looking to meet new competency requirements or to showcase your organization’s skills, this is a great way to get started.
This limited-time offer is through Prometric, and details are published on their web site. These packs are valid for a select list of exams, so be sure to review the online list of qualifying exams.
