If you are creating Web applications that use ASP.NET 2.0, the Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD) Web Applications credential highlights your job role, featuring your specific area of expertise. Now you can easily distinguish yourself as an expert in Web application development.

As a Professional Developer in Web Applications 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.

Our nine day (9) Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD) Accelerated Course:

  • Allows you to achieve your certifications in a fraction of the time of 'traditional training' while delivering industry-leading exam passing percentages

  • Enhances retention by employing accelerated learning techniques focused on committing information to long-term memory
