        Your organization must have one product or application that has passed one of the following application tests:
        • Silver Competency Test for Windows 8
        • Silver Competency Test for Windows Server 2012
        • Silver Competency Test for Windows Server 2012 R2
        • Silver Competency Test for Windows Phone 8

        Qualifying gold application tests are also valid toward earning the Silver Application Development competency.

        Qualifying applications include developed and marketed, packaged software solutions based on Microsoft technologies. Custom-written applications not meant for resale do not qualify.

        Use Microsoft Platform Ready to find more details about application tests.
    2. 2. Complete your organization’s profile
      • Your Microsoft Partner Network account administrator must provide pertinent information about your organization.
    3. 3. Provide customer evidence
      • Your organization must have three customer references that feature how, within the previous 12 months, you have provided solutions based on the products and technologies associated with this competency. After a reference has been approved by your customer and by Microsoft, it can be used toward earning or renewing a competency for up to two years. Review a sample customer reference email that can be used for customer references for this competency.
    4. 4. Pay the silver competency fee
      • To complete your enrollment in the competency, you must pay the silver competency fee. The fee is due one time per year—no matter how many competencies your organization earns. The fee varies by location. According to the URL that you are currently visiting, your fee would be [%silverprice%] [%currency%], not including applicable local taxes and fees. This fee will also be presented to you during the enrollment process. Your actual fee will be based on the physical location of your company.
