If you’re interested in earning the Desktop competency to showcase your organisation’s Windows and Office deployment skills - the MPN UK team are offering free certification and training for two of your Microsoft Certified Professionals in February.

Learning Competency Partner - QA will be running 2x 2 hour virtual training boot camp sessions via LiveMeeting.  The boot camp covers everything you need to know to prepare for the 70-681 TS: Deploying Windows 7 and Office 2010 exam.  Partners that attend the training will then be given vouchers to take the exam free of charge from their local Microsoft test centre.

By having two MCPs successfully pass exam 70-681 your organisation will have met the technical requirements for the competency – you would then just need to meet the customer reference requirement, pass the online sales and licensing assessments, and pay the competency fee – more information about the Desktop Competency and full requirements and benefits can be found here.

 

The Exam cram will take place on 10th Feb 2012 and the exam itself can be taken at your convenience in Feb and March – at a time you agree with your testing centre.

Please note – the exam vouchers will only be made available to Partners that attend the training session in its’ entirety
