"Surface Complete for Education is a warranty offering designed to give schools and educational institutions access to accidental damage protection, claims sharing, exclusive end-user device training tailored to education, and onboarding resources," devices team explains.
"School IT departments can pool accidental damage claims up to 100% of devices purchased, independent of which device user requested a new claim," added devices team.
"This means warranties don't have to be tied to a specific device which allows for more than the traditional 2 accidental damage claims (with Complete for Business) to be made on a Surface device." And with accidental damage protection benefit, "schools will be eligible for a replacement, and the process will be seamless and easy incase of an unfortunate spill or drop."
