Pass Your Next Certification Exam between February 3 and April 27 and Enter to Win a Surface Pro 2

CertificationSweepstakesFor 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:

  • Weekly drawings for two $500 Microsoft Store gift cards
  • Monthly drawings for two Surface Pro 2 tablets

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.

Prepare for your exam

Associate to your company’s MPN profile

Follow the instructions for Simplified Association to connect your Microsoft account (previously Windows Live ID) to your company’s Microsoft Partner Network membership profile.


*NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Sweepstakes ends April 27. Open only to authorized representatives of companies enrolled in the Microsoft Partner Network with a valid MPN ID who are legal residents of the US, age 18 and older. For details, including free alternate method of entry, see Official rules.

    Suppose we won, who would be contacting us? I don't want to be scammed…

  25. Pete says:

    I have received an e-mail, but i have no way to confirm if real or fake, as it is not from "Microsoft US Partner Training" but everything else seems ok. Is there some way outside of the e-mail to confirm I won?

  26. Ajay Nadakuditi says:

    70-346 and 70-347 which were recently published (considered as replacements for 70-321 and 70-323) are qualified for this offer? I took the beta exam for 70-346 (71-346) on Feb 14, 2014 and passed. My ID is already associated with my company's MPN profile.
