MCTS NET Framework 2.0 Distributed Applications

The Technology Specialist certifications enable professionals to target specific technologies and distinguish themselves by demonstrating in-depth knowledge and expertise in their specialized technologies. Developers holding the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: .NET Framework 2.0 Distributed Applications (MCTS: .NET Framework 2.0 Distributed Applications) certification have demonstrated breadth and depth of skills and knowledge of Web services, .NET Framework remoting, Enterprise Services, and Message Queuing technology.


Candidates for this certification must pass two exams: one that focuses on .NET Framework 2.0 foundational skills and one that focuses on developing distributed applications. If you plan to upgrade from an MCAD or MCSD on .NET certification to a Microsoft Certified Professional Developer certification, you do not need to obtain an MCTS certification first. You will earn the applicable MCTS certifications when you pass the upgrade exam(s) for MCPD: Windows Applications Developer, MCPD: Web Applications Developer, or MCPD: Enterprise Applications Developer.


Technology Specialists typically pursue careers as Web developers, Windows developers, or enterprise software developers. They may also be database developers and systems administrators who do not work with the .NET Framework 2.0 daily but who want to show their breadth of technology experience.
