Microsoft Corp. recently announced a 30 percent discount off the price of all its certification exams in South and Central America.

In most countries, the promotion is already underway -- candidates can register for discount exams now using promotional codes found here on Microsoft's secure MCP site. For those in Columbia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela, the promotion opens March 15.

The discount code can be used at both Prometric and Pearson Vue testing centers. There appears to be no limit on the number of exams it can be applied to; however, in most counties, the exams must be taken by April 15. Candidates in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela must take their discounted exams by June 15.

For more information on this promotion, use the link above.

Señores de Microsoft:
Soy el Director de un Programa de Informatica y Sistemas en la Universidad Mayor de San Simon. Como se hace evidente nos dedicamos a trabajar en las areas de ciencias de la computacion y matematicas. Trabajamos en apoyo de actividades de alumnos de pregrado y postgrado, por lo cual considero que estamos fuertemente insertos en la educacion de ciencias de la computacion en el medio.

Ademas considerando que se trata de una unidad de educacion de ciencias de la computacion en un pais tercer mundista y conocedores de que su prestigiosa institucion otorga apoyo a instituciones como la nuestra, estariamos seriamente interesados en establecer contacto con ustedes y pensar en posibles forma de trabajo conjunta para el desarrollo de esta cienica en nuestro pais.
Al respecto deseo comentarles que contamos con infraestructura apropiada para este tipo de iniciativa. Porque tenemos un edificio propio con instalacion apropiada para implementar una red de computadoras, algunos muebles para acomodar equipos. Y poder arrancar en este trabajo.
Estos son algunos de los comentarios que les puedo realizar, si ustedes nos tomasen en cuenta inmediatamente me gustaria poder establecer relaciones y pensar en actividades que podriamos realizar con su empresa.
Atte.
Lic. Henrry Villarroel

Ernesto is right. Honestly many companies down here (in Ecuador) barely have enough computers to survive...yet alone servers....or want ot pay for advanced and expensive software (like MS SMS server or Exchange).

Honestly, fuck Microsoft, fuck their exams, and fuck their certifications.

Me parece una muy buena idea de parte de Microsoft para que muchas personas puedan acceder a los examenes de certificacion a un precio menor, ahora solo depende de uno que pueda prepararse para no desaprovechar esta oportunidad y obtener como minimo un MCP.

Gracias.

Be aware that the wages in South America are very low, but despite of It we don't see any new IT companies in our countrys... so i guess that there aren't enough MCPs to promote Microsoft products.... simple marketing.....

"Will they offer a discount to people in the USA any time soon? You know, their fellow citizens who buy their products, many of whom once worked for them, and made the company wealthy?"

What a stupid comment.

Discount to US citizens? Are you kidding? Pony up full price, your discounts will come when the Linux certifications start to take off - Am I wrong?
