Not Public Yet....coming soon to Learning Partner near you

Phil Webb

I had a fun chat this morning with a few hundred Microsoft Learning Partners to see how much interest there was in offering a Free Virtualization exam to all their current and former ITPro students...not only were they interested, but almost 90 Learning Partners jumped in already today on behalf of their customers.  You won't see a public announcement about this special opportunity to take exam 70-659 MCTS: Windows Server 2008 R2, Server Virtualization until after Oct 1st so keep a look out on Microsoft Virtualization Training & Certification for more details.  Forgive me for taking a little more space, but I thought I would give you the early locations in case you're interested.  If you've ever been a student at any of the following organizations, contact them next week and ask about how you can take the Virtualization Challenge for free:

    So will the training package Here -> be modified to include a free retry as per the training for 70-659 posted here ->

    The advert on this forum ( said that the voucher is worth $150 - given that it is now being offered for free to people that can afford to pay for formal training will the attendees get a different exam voucher offer eg for any exam?

    David - I would normally ask you to wait until tomorrow when the offer goes live to see the details...but that's a little when the offer goes live tomorrow you'll see that it includes not only the first take for free to test your skills, but it also includes another free opportunity if you need too, to take the same exam after improving your skills.

    Jump Start + Exam:  A full day of expert training and a full exam are worth way more than $150...I think it's a steal of a deal.  As of right now the Virtualization Jump Start is the only one being considered for this special offer.  Thanks for asking!

    Ok, my last training was from Microsoft themselves (I assuming that Microsoft itself is a "Microsoft Learning Partner") even though they are not on the list.  (The training was for MCM: Windows Server 2008, Directory (R5 in May 2009))  Given that I have already purchased the Jump Start training I will use the 2nd voucher as a second chance option. That and the Prometic MCITP Virtualization offer and I should get an additional MCITP soon.

    I still consider the advertising done for the Jump Start training to be misleading as the plans for the other offers must have been known about and thus a significant number of people will be gaining vouchers from two locations.

    Phil Webb, Could you assist me in the obtaining of the voucher for the exam from Microsoft?

    Phil Webb,  I have just taken and failed the 70-659 using the exam voucher from the Jumpstart Training Course, so if you can assist me (and if Microsoft are a Learning Partner for themselves) that would be very useful.  I need a quick responce, as I only just failed the exam and I am planning to take it as soon as possible.
