Does my company have Microsoft SATV’s?
If your company has a Microsoft Volume Licensing Agreement, it’s more than likely there are SATV’s available for training. To find out:
- Locate your Microsoft Licensing Agreement.
- Your IT Director or Purchasing department usually has the Licensing Agreement.
- Identify the Benefits Administrator (BA) named in the Licensing Agreement.
- The BA is the individual in your company that has the right to access SATV information.
- If the BA does not have the access information, contact your Microsoft rep or licensing reseller (LAR).
- The BA can go to Microsoft.com/Licensing/ServiceCenter to access your company’s SATV information, such as:
- # of SATV’s
- Expiration Date
- # of Used SAV’s
- # of SATV’s remaining
How does my company redeem the SATV’s for training?
- Identify the employee (student) that will utilize the SATV’s and the number of training days included in the desired class.
- You do not need to know the specific class – just the number of days.
- Activate the SATV’s by assigning the appropriate number of SATV’s (one for each day of training) to the student.
- Simply submit the student’s name and email address with the number of vouchers required on the SATV website.
- The student will receive an automated email from Microsoft containing an 8 digit code.
How do I use SATV’s to purchase training?
- You (the student) contact your preferred authorized Microsoft Learning Partner (training provider) and register for the appropriate class.
- The class must be an SATV authorized Microsoft class.
- If you’re unsure whether a class is SATV authorized, you can find out if it is here.
- When asked for payment method, you forward the email with the 8 digit code to the training provider.
- The training provider will then redeem the SATV with Microsoft.
Centriq has created a proprietary planning tool that includes all SATV eligible training classes. You can download a copy of that tool HERE. Once you’ve completed it, you can email it to a Training Advisor for assistance utilizing your company’s SATV’s for the training classes you need.
