How Does It Work?
Make your purchases through AdvizeX, an authorized Carahsoft reseller
NYSERNet has an established relationship with AdvizeX and can put you in contact with a representative familiar with the terms of the program.

The more credits you purchase, the greater your savings
Discounts for training and professional services are taken off of the list price for training and PSO credits, which is $100/credit. Be sure to review the terms associated with PSO and training credits, which can be found here: http://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/services/consserv-pso-credits-datasheet.pdf
