For companies in the Microsoft Partner Network, Microsoft Certified Professionals are critical to their ability to maintain credibility with and demonstrate technical expertise to customers. Specific Microsoft Certifications are required to earn MPN gold and silver competencies, but even Microsoft partners that choose not to attain a competency benefit from having technical professionals who are certified on the latest Microsoft product and technology releases.
Your next Microsoft Certification exam could be your winning entry to our US Partner Certification Sweepstakes. Whether you are working towards your first Microsoft Certification, or adding another certification notch to your belt, we’d like to sweeten the deal. Individuals who are associated to a Microsoft Partner Network member organization and who pass a qualifying Microsoft Certification exam between February 3 and April 27 earn an entry* into our sweepstakes:
The first drawing will be for qualifying exams passed during the week of February 3. You will receive an automatic drawing entry for each exam you pass, if you are associated to a member organization in the Microsoft Partner Network. Winners will receive an email from Microsoft US Partner Training, and we announce them on our blog each month.
