Overview

If you are developing .NET Framework 2.0 applications that use Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 the Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD) Windows Application credential highlights your job role, featuring your specific area of expertise. Now you can easily distinguish yourself as an expert in Windows development.

As a Professional Developer in Windows Development you will have the skills necessary to build rich client applications that target the Windows Forms platform using the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.

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
  • Helps students grasp complex technical concepts more easily by identifying and catering to individual student learning styles through a mixed visual, auditory and kinaesthetic-tactual delivery system
  • Enhances retention by employing accelerated learning techniques focused on committing information to long-term memory

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online .NET 2 Windows courses
  2. You'll be .NET 2 Windows certified in just 9 days. With us, you’ll be .NET 2 Windows trained in record time
  3. Our .NET 2 Windows course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass .NET 2 Windows first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn .NET 2 Windows faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying .NET 2 Windows with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010.
