    I am thinking about certification, I have never done any certs in MS
    technology. Have got lots of experience with lots of high level language have
    been using C for a long time did a lot of OO at university (7 years ago) but
    in a bit of a dead end job now and would like to enhance my career by
    learning C# .net and associated technologies stream cert. However is
    VS2003/.net1.1 still valid or should I consider another (more up to date)
    cert? I was hoping to get it done in about a year with home study. Any advice
    welcome.
    Cheers

  2. Hi David,

    Start looking at MCTS and MCPD certs which target .NET 2.0. .NET 3.0 and
    ..NET 3.5 are not released yet.

    Thank you Simon,

    Now I look at the MCTS route, I think this is the right way to go for me.

    Cheers
