As part of the next major step in the evolution of the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN), Microsoft today launched 23 new MPN competencies and two new subscriptions. You are invited to view an on demand video released today with Julie Bennani, general manager of the Microsoft Partner Network, and Pam Salzer, senior director of worldwide partner marketing at Microsoft, discussing WPC, new MPN competencies and subscriptions.

In this video, Julie and Pam also discuss a couple of special offers for our partners. The offers include Second Shot, which provides partners with free exam retakes and online training resources until June 30, and for partners attending WPC, we announced a 5-for-1 Exam Pass. This pass allows partners to take up to five exams for the price of one between WPC and 10/10/2010, and each partner is eligible to purchase up to four of these passes. Partners can save up to $2,000 through this offer.
