Check Your SBSC Status

It’s come to light recently that some partners are having their SBSC status change without realising

The reason being that the Sales and Marketing Assessment you have to complete when signing up only lasts for two years. On top of this you don’t receive any E-mails or alerts to let you know.

Microsoft are aware of this and looking into it but in the meantime just do the following to check


Logon to the Microsoft partner portal (this link is for the UK)

Click “View Your Membership Account” and then click “Membership Center”


Select “Competency Summary” from the “Requirements & Assets” menu


Scroll down until you find the Small Business Specialist Community section


You’ll notice at the bottom it’s letting me know that I need to complete the assessment so click on the “Training and Assessment” link

This takes you to the assessment page – click start to begin (make sure you allow pop-ups from the site)


The assessment is shouldn’t be too difficult to complete if you’ve already done it once before. Once you pass you should see this


You can then return to the competency summary to check to see if you are compliant once again – this doesn’t appear to update straight away though (it hadn’t when I’d posted this) so check back later
