.NET Framework 3.5 Certifications

If there is one thing you should know about Visual Studio 2008
certifications… it is that there are three things you should know.

  1. There
    are six MCTS certifications to choose from to show off your specific
    technology skill set. Three of those six can be earned today.

  2. There
    are three MCPD certifications to choose from to show off your
    professional-skills in the area of ASP.NET, Windows, or Enterprise
    Application development (same paths we had for Visual Studio 2005*).
    None of those can be earned yet.

  3. All of the above require
    exam 70-536 as a first step. 70-536 is ‘version agnostic;’ that same
    exam applies to Visual Studio 2005 and Visual Studio 2008

  4. If you are working with .NET 2.0–we
    recommend you should work on a .NET 2.0 certification. Those are not
    going away just because the .NET 3.5 stuff is coming out, so don’t
    freak out.

Four. Four things you should know.


Microsoft just published a lot of pages that give details about all of the
above, including the upgrade paths from VS2005 that many of you have
been asking about. Start on the Visual Studio 2008 certification landing page
— follow the links to descriptions for the MCTS and MCPD certs, and
requirements for each. Let us know if something is not clear… If you want to go right to the upgrade info, see upgrade paths from Visual Studio 2005

You can download a PDF mini-poster of the certifications here.

ALL exams are live now–you can get certified today on WPF, WCF, or Workflow, You combine any one of these with Exam 70-536 TS: .NET Framework, Application Development Foundation
and you will earn a corresponding MCTS .NET Framework 3.5
certification. http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcpd/vstudio/2008/default.mspx
