Licensing Training for Breadth Partners

The Microsoft Licensing Sales Specialist (MLSS) accreditation is made up of seven modules.   Each module has a test that you must take which has 25 questions and you have 30 minutes to complete.  In order to pass the module you require an 80% pass mark.  Although you have 30 minutes to complete on average they will only take around 15-20 to allow for reading the questions fully.

There are 5 core modules:

Microsoft Product Fundamentals
Fundamentals of Licensing

Product Licensing: Windows and Office
Product Licensing: Server Applications
Selling Software Assurance

For the remaining two modules you have the choice of focussing on either Small & Medium Businesses or Large Organisations.  The Small and Medium businesses focus on the different versions of Open licensing.  The Large Organisation modules focus on Select and Enterprise -
