A number of changes to the Microsoft Partner Network Learning Competency have gone into effect, including changes to the enrolment and KPI reporting periods and competency and KPI requirements. These include:

  • For anniversary dates between January and March 2011, Learning Partners must meet KPI targets between January 2010 and December 2010.
  • For anniversary dates between April and June 2011, Learning Partners must meet KPI targets between April 2010 and March 2011.
  • Learning Partners must meet KPI requirements per their enrolment period. KPIs are measured for four rolling quarters prior to your enrolment date.
  • Gold Certified partners must meet all new Gold Competency Microsoft Partner Network requirements to qualify as Gold Competency partners in the new network.

Also, as a reminder, the date for 2010 rebate closure is December 31, 2010. All 2010 rebate requests must be submitted no later than March 31, 2011. There will be no extensions or exceptions to this date.
