Hi @JASA1976 


I did some research and the Security competency is targeted to be available for partners to attain and purchase in the partner center dashboard in FY20 Q1, which means anytime until September 30th. 

There is no particular action you need to take.

Hopefully this will appear on PC dashboard as soon as possible. (:
