If you are developing .NET Framework 2.0 applications that use Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 or creating Web applications that use ASP.NET 2.0, the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) credentials highlights your job role, featuring your specific area of expertise. Now you can easily distinguish yourself as an expert in Windows development, Web application development, or distributed applications development. There are three MCTS certification paths:
You will have the skills necessary to build interactive, data-driven Web applications that use ASP.NET 2.0 for both intranet and Internet uses.
You will have the skills necessary to build rich client applications that target the Windows Forms platform using the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.
You will have the skills necessary to develop, implement, and deploy XML Web services, .NET Framework remoting, Enterprise Services, and Message Queuing technology.
You may be entitled to heavily-discounted training via Microsoft's Software Assurance Training Voucher (SATV) scheme. If your business has bought Microsoft software, check to see if it came bundled with free training vouchers! Vouchers can be exchanged against training for all Microsoft technologies.
