    Is there any certification for VB 6.0 ? If not,what are the other
    certifications one can go for ? Will 70-536 certification be useful in this
    case , considering I am a beginner in and and a VB 6.0
    developer with 2 years of experience ?

    Thanks in advance.

  3. Have you tried looking on the Microsoft Learning website?

    Short answer: There are no available certifications for products that many
    versions old.

    Same site. Same answers.

    70-536 is required for any developer certification; it's rather pointless
    whether you think it will be "useful" or not, but to answer the question
    anyway, I guess that depends on whether you intend to market yourself as a
    VB6 programmer for the rest of your life, or you intend to learn the .NET
    Framework API/Library at some point. The 70-536 will be indispensable in the
    process of learning anything about .NET, and absolutely required -- since my
    assumption is that you are interested in certification -- you just don't
    know what's available (or how to find it).

    Hi Lawrence,

    Thanks for your reply.I do know where to look for certifications.But I did
    not find any certifications for VB 6.0 and just wanted to make sure regarding
    the same.I do understand that 70 - 536 is a certification for .Net framework
    foundation.I basically wanted to know if this certification is in the right
    direction , considering that currently I am on VB 6.0 and do intend to move
    to .Net,since VB 6.0 has become outdated.
