It’s been a while since we’ve covered the Small Business competency, and now’s the time as we have some really great news to share.
First up, the offer to earn the Silver Small Business competency for only US$999 has been extended! You can participate through June 30, 2013. Get details here.
I’m also happy to announce that we now have free exam codes for Exam 74-324 Administering Office 365 for Small Businesses. What this means is you could take the exam – a requirement for attaining the Small Business competency – for free from Prometric! The code is MPNO365  MPNO365PD (Updated January 21) – enter this at the Prometric website. Note that this code is valid for the first 2,000 partners through June 30, 2013 – whichever comes first – so act quickly! For complete rules, see below. Thank you for your amazing interest in the voucher promotion – all 2,000 free codes have been allocated to partners now.  If you registered to take an exam, please be sure to complete it before 6/30/13 when the code expires.  If you need to reschedule or cancel an exam, proper notice is required and fees may apply.  Please see the Prometric website for terms and conditions.
Finally, as the Small Business competency and Office 365 go hand in hand, I’m sure you’ll also be interested to know about the upcoming Office 365 Ignite Plus training session, January 22-24th. This exclusive premier partner pre-launch event is designed for sales professionals and technical consultants and will be held at the Microsoft Corporate campus in Redmond, USA. Attend to hear about the new technical capabilities of this release as well as business opportunities. Ignite Plus will feature presentations, demonstrations, and ample time for discussion with experts from the Microsoft Office Division and the Microsoft Partner Network.
