There have been a variety of different questions I have seen from Partners looking to understand what is required and how they can achieve the various levels in the Microsoft Partner Network as well as how to better understand how several of these items work. For instance, what is required to achieve the Registered Member level as a Microsoft Partner? What do I need to do to reach the Certified Partner level or the Gold Certified Partner level? What are points and how do I earn them?
To help answer these questions, I want to point you to a few resources on the Microsoft Partner Network site that can help you with answering these and many other questions as well as point you to resources surrounding many of these items.
I hope this helps answer many of the questions you may have about the Microsoft Partner Network. Please feel free to share this post with any others in your local Partner groups, your online resources, etc. to help your peers find answers to their questions regarding these topics as well.
Thank you and have a wonderful day,
