Special offer from SMB Nation East – Become a Small Business Specialist In a Weekend

Have you been looking to become a Microsoft Small Business Specialist; however, have not taken the time to take one of the required MCP Exams to qualify?  Maybe you’ve been saying, “I’ll get to it…”  Well, here’s your chance to do it all plus more in a weekend and at a discounted price.


SMB Nation East (EASY!) is back on May 4-5, 2007 in Islandia, NY (CA Campus) with new content and a new direction. This is a turn-key educational opportunity with on-site certification testing and expert instruction to complete ALL of the steps at one time in one place to become a Small Business Specialist! No distractions and or nonsense. There is also ample SMB community CONTENT including managed services, advanced security and Web 2.0 for everyone to enjoy. Throw in social networking with peers to discuss business and technical best practices, an evening reception and you’ve got an incredibly valuable regional professional event.


Note that there is a special emphasis on the new 70-631 Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS) certification exam which is a new Small Business Specialist entry point AND there is another deep dive WSS content session (taught by SBS and WSS author Jonathan Hassell). The 70-282 SMB network infrastructure exam cram is taught by popular SMB authors Harry Brelsford and Beatrice Mulzer. The sales and marketing assessment is taught by the “go to” Microsoft Gold Partner Arlin Sorensen. And you simply won’t want to miss Tcat’s famed certification success lecture with memorization tricks and anxiety reduction tips!


You can attend for as little as $99 USD down and enjoy the early bird price of $295 USD that INCLUDES your examination voucher! Get more information and register at Save 10 percent off your registration with the code WSTPA.


Plus, additional sessions like this are also coming to Chicago and San Francisco in June.
