Hello Everyone,

Let’s face it; working with small businesses is a tough job.  Nothing is worse than getting a call from your clients saying that their computers are down.  Did you know that when your client's systems go down, it could cost them up to $12,500 a day?

This is a question that I frequently get asked by partners around the globe.  Well, there is one really, really important reason why you want to get your own PartnerNet account.   In order to receive credit for completing any of the Symantec Assessment or Authorization exams, you need to log in with your OWN PartnerNet account.  These are the exams that lead to the various accreditations (SSE, SSE+, STS, ASC).

If you sign up to take the exam and complete it, using anyone else's credentials, they will get credit, NOT you.  This can cause a lot of problems, especially if that person has already completed the exam.  In that case, your company will not get the credit for an additional person completing the exam.  The completions are automated and feed directly into the CertTracker application on the back end.  We do not do any manual data entry or cross checking if that person already completed the exam. ...
