As you probably know by now, back on August 5th we launched the “Second shot” promotion through Microsoft Learning that allowed you to take a certification exam and if you fail, you get a second chance to take it for free. This promotion has been received with open arms by our Partners and the amount of positive feedback about it has been great.

So what are we going to do now? Well, we’re going to sweeten the deal even more! Here’s how:

From October 15th until December 31, 2008, not only will we be offering the “Second shot” promotion for anyone who happens to fail their exam on the first try but we will also be offering a promotion for those who pass their exam on the first time. That’s right! Whether you pass or fail on the first try, you will receive a benefit from the newly expanded “Second shot” promotion.

If you fail on your first try, you get to take the exam again at no additional cost

If you pass on your first try, you can now use the Second Shot offer to enjoy 25% off a different exam

Here are the steps you need to follow to take advantage of this offer for yourself and those within your company:

  • Register for Second Shot offer and sit for the exam by December 31, 2008!
  • If you fail the exam you will receive a free retake exam that can be utilized until June 30, 2009
  • If you Pass, you will get 25% off a second exam.  You have until February 28, 2009 to utilize the discounted exam.   

Note: If you pass the first exam but fail your 25% off second exam, you will not get a free retake on your second exam.
