Effective November 2013, the current Small Business Specialist Community Program (SBSC) has been retired. As a form of replacement, the Small Business Competency has been made available for you to gain. Maintaining or reaching this competency makes the value of your organization more visible to your customers and can earn you a number of additional benefits from Microsoft, such as Internal-Use Rights for the latest software.
To maintain or reach the Small Business Competency, you need individuals certified on both Windows Server and Office 365. Because we know your time is valuable, we have created a special offer for each of these certifications; the Microsoft Partner Readiness Bootcamps. These bootcamps are the quickest and easiest way to have you and your people certified on Windows Server 2012 and/or Office 365.
About the Microsoft Partner Readiness Bootcamps
These bootcamps are deep technical bootcamps that take place in two phases: Phase 1 is a 2-week self-study period, which is opened with an online kick-off session to help you get started. Phase 2 is a 2-day Instructor-led exam preparation, followed by the exam itself.
