    • Microsoft Certifications are broadly grouped in series that map to job roles. If you are new to technology, you might want to start by exploring our specialist certifications. Seasoned IT professionals and developers should consider advanced Professional or Master series certifications. Specialist Series The Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) series credential demonstrates in-depth knowledge of a key Microsoft product or technology, validating your ability to implement, build, troubleshoot, and debug a particular Microsoft technology, such as Windows Server, Microsoft .NET Framework, or Microsoft SQL Server. Choose from more than 30 certifications, with more being added as new technologies are introduced. Earning an MCTS certification typically requires that you successfully pass one to three exams and have at least one year of relevant experience. • Learn more about the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) credential Professional Series The Professional Series credential validates a comprehensive set of job-related skills, such as project management, system design, operations management, and planning. Demonstrate your focus on a single job role, thereby providing a reliable indicator of on-the-job performance. Typically, a Professional Series certification requires that you pass one to three exams and have one or more technology certifications. Choose from two Professional Series certifications, which are based on job roles: • Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) • Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD) Master Series Earning a Microsoft Certified Master (MCM) certification shows that you can successfully design and implement solutions that solve highly complex business challenges. The courses are taught by experts from Microsoft and Microsoft partner organizations that offer exclusive, advanced technical training. MCM certifications involve expert-level classroom training, labs that incorporate real-world customer scenarios, and both computer- and lab-based exams. Choose from certifications that focus on specific technologies, such as Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, Windows Server 2008 – Directory, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. • Explore Microsoft Certified Master certifications Architect Series A Microsoft Certified Architect (MCA) is considered an industry expert in IT architecture, with five or more years of advanced experience and proven technical expertise and leadership. To obtain the MCA credential, you must demonstrate
    • competencies of business acumen and technology proficiency during a Review Board interview with a panel of industry experts. Three certification tracks are available: • MCA Technology programs • MCA Infrastructure program • MCA Solutions program Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) When you earn a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) certification, you validate your in-depth technical knowledge and skill in using the features and functionality of key technology areas in Microsoft Visual Studio and the Microsoft .NET Framework to design software applications. You can earn a single certification to show your depth of knowledge in a specific Visual Studio technology, earn multiple certifications to demonstrate your breadth of understanding across different specialties, or build on your MCTS certification to earn a Professional Series credential. Individual MCTS certifications will be retired when Microsoft discontinues mainstream support for the related technology.

You only need to pass this exam once. About this Exam This Technology Specialist (TS) exam, Exam 70-536: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework, Application Development Foundation, became available in March 2006. This exam is available in English, French, German, Japanese, and Chinese (Simplified). Exam 70-536 is designed to measure your knowledge of .NET development fundamentals and is not tied to a particular version of .NET. Since the exam is now applicable to both Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 and Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 certification tracks, we have changed the name of the exam. Formerly TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 – Application Development Foundation, Exam 70-536 is now called TS: Microsoft .NET Framework, Application Development Foundation. If you are a .NET 2.0 developer, you do not need to learn .NET 3.5 to pass Exam 70-536; conversely, if you are a .NET 3.5 developer, you do not need to review .NET 2.0 to pass the exam.
