Confused about what to do to re-enrol in the new Microsoft Core Infrastructure competencies?

Use the transition tool to be sure you have met the right requirements before your renewal date.

Remember beginning October 2010, you must pass new assessments and certifications to retain your Microsoft competency or attain a new one.

Competency Planning Tools:

Microsoft competencies make it possible for you to promote your Core Infrastructure capabilities to customers, through the use of tailored logos and through a wide range of customer-facing directories. By attaining a silver competency or a gold competency, you can access a range of benefits, resources, and tools that can help you drive profitability for your organization.

Take advantage of exam offers and savings.

What Is the Business Opportunity?

Whether you design, sell, deploy, or consult on Windows Server, System Centre or Forefront solutions, Microsoft competencies can help to expand your role as a trusted advisor, increase your business value, and grow revenue. A June 2009 IDC report* shows that partners with more than two core infrastructure competencies sign deals that are 68 percent larger than average and enjoy 28 percent higher revenue per employee, in addition to longer engagements and faster revenue growth.
