    Hi all,

    I'm a bit new here on these forums, and I'm sure that you guys can help me
    with some questions I have about the dotnet certifications.
    At the moment I have an MCTS in
    ..Net Framework 2.0: Windows Applications and
    ..Net Framework 2.0: Web Applications (just got it 2 days ago)

    Now I thought that there was a next step, like MCAD, certified application
    developer, but it seems that this type is for the 1.1 framework.
    I would want to evolve to a higher level of course, but I can't really find
    if that is possible. I've done the following exams:

    528 TS: Microsoft® .NET Framework 2.0 - Web-based Client
    536 TS: Microsoft® .NET Framework 2.0 - Application Development
    526 TS: Microsoft® .NET Framework 2.0 - Windows®-based Client

    Are there any higher level dotnet exams, or good architect exams?
    Can anybody put me on the way?

  2. The "next step" in the .NET Framework v2.0 realm is the MCPD (Microsoft
    Certified Professional Developer).

    Having completed the -536, -526, and -528, you have three different pathways
    to go:

    MCPD: Windows Developer by taking exam -548

    MCPD: Web Developer by taking exam -547

    MCPD: Enterprise Applications Developer by taking exams -529 and -549
