MCAD Requirements and Training Resources

Now is the time to validate your Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 and Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 developer skills with the Microsoft Certified Application Developer (MCAD) for Microsoft .NET credential. MCAD candidates are required to pass two core exams and one elective exam in an area of specialization. See the table that follows for a complete list of exams and related training resources.

If you are not currently building .NET applications, we recommend getting started with fundamental Microsoft Visual Studio .NET development skills.

NEW You may now choose to apply the new Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist exams for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 as electives for your MCSD credential.

Candidates using Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 and Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 should consider pursuing the new Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) and Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD) credentials. They provide developers who are creating .NET Framework 2.0 applications that use Visual Studio 2005 with a simpler and more targeted framework to showcase their technical skills and their ability to develop rich solutions that meet business needs.

 

How to Earn Your MCAD

Core Exams (Two Exams Required)

To fulfill the core certification requirements, pass one exam that is focused on either Web Application Development or Windows Application Development in the language of your choice. Then pass one Web Services and Server Components exam.
