Air-IT become Microsoft Gold Authorised Education Partner - Air IT support

Microsoft Gold Authorised Education Partner (AEP)

Adding further depth to our capabilities as Microsoft Gold Partner, our AEP accreditation means we can continue to provide discounts to qualifying users within the Education and certain not-for-profit markets within the UK.

To gain accreditation as an AEP, Air-IT were required to complete and pass stringent testing proving our ability to deliver the specialist advice and IT services required in the Education sector.

By becoming AEPs, partners show themselves to be committed and trained in providing discounted Microsoft academic products to the education market.

This authorisation, along with our other education partner initiatives, gives our partners recognition of their areas of expertise and our academic customers the confidence that they are buying from academic IT specialists.

About the Microsoft AEP programme

Replacing the Microsoft Authorised Education Reseller (AER) certification in 2015, the AEP programme recognises existing expertise via previously gained Microsoft Partner competencies.

Microsoft Gold Partner - Air IT support

As an existing Microsoft Gold Midmarket Solution Provider, we are pleased to also qualify as a Gold AEP which reinforces our ability to support varying IT requirements for different market types.

As the first partner in Nottingham to hold both Microsoft Gold accreditations in 2016, we are proud to continue to be a market leader reinforcing our position among the top 1% of Microsoft Partners worldwide, and setting a standard within the industry in the East midlands.

We’re extremely pleased to retain our status as a Microsoft Gold Authorised Education Partner. At Air-IT, we’re committed to providing a world-class service for our clients who come from a diverse range of market sectors including Charity, Education and not-for-profit backgrounds.

Retaining our status as an AEP not only allows us to provide significant discounts to these markets, but enables them to get the most from their IT and the very best value from their technology investments.
