Press Release: Intertech Achieves Silver Competencies in Microsoft Partner Network

Eagan, MN - April 27, 2011 - Intertech (, Instructors Who Consult and Consultants Who Teach

Intertech recently gained Microsoft Silver Certifications on Learning, Software Development, and Web Development. These certifications enable Intertech to showcase a deep understand of Microsoft’s products and Intertech's commitment to continual education and advancement.

Achieving Microsoft Silver Competencies is no small task. First, employees must establish themselves as Microsoft Certified Professionals by passing a certification exam. The exam is two to three hours in length and typically consists of upwards of 70 questions.

After employees have solidified themselves as Microsoft Certified Professionals, the company must submit at least 3 customer references, participate in an annual customer satisfaction survey, and successfully complete technical assessments and exams.

It also validates the value of their training or consulting experience. "We are pleased to have gained three of Microsoft's Silver Certifications.

These certifications highlight our continual expertise in the market, and our commitment to exceptional customer satisfaction," stated Ryan McCabe, V.P. of Consulting at Intertech.

In addition to consulting, Intertech also delivers training.
