There were some questions around the 25 Partner Points associate with the Microsoft Small Business Designation when it first came out and these have come up a few times recently as well.  As a reminder points earned for becoming a Small Business Specialist are part of the “Additional Competency and Designations” category, which has a maximum of 25 points.  These points are not “Qualifying Partner Points,” and each works in a slightly different manner.
