Confusion over applying for App Dev Competency (KPIs)

I am in the process of sorting out our company's exams and certifications to meet the Silver App Dev competency. I have a few questions:


- Do you have to pay the fee before applying or only once you have met the exams/certifications requirements?

- In the partner center portal it states that for Silver competency you have to achieve 200 KPIs in training in the current year - but the link to find out more doesn't work. Is this now invalid? On the Microsoft website it doesn't say anything about KPIs, just that you have to pass exams and pay the fee.

- Is there someone/a team at Microsoft that manages queries? I can't seem to find anyone to help answer ongoing questions.


Many thanks 🙂

Hi @Nataliegray ,


Thank you for your feedback.

As the competencies are being updated, is likely that some pages are no longer available. Thank you for flagging this, we will have a team look at the broken link.

Regarding your query is best to reach out to Frontline Support: https://partner.microsoft.com/support .
