Does passing 70-536 make me a MCTS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • On Microsoft's homepage, the exam 70-536 is called "TS: Microsoft .NET Framework - Application Development Foundation". Does this mean that I become a MCTS by passing this exam? Or do I _only_ become a MCP?

  • Rubel is correct, my transcript doesn't show "Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist" for 70-536 in Credential section.

    It does show "Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist" for other single exams such as:

    70-448 (SQL Server 2008, Business Intelligence Development and Maintenance)

    70-431 (TS: Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2005 - Implementation and Maintenance)

    70-445 (TS: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Business Intelligence– Implementation and Maintenance)

    Thanks for the correction :-)

  • MCTS is actually the replacement of MCP

    When you pass an exam, you used to get MCP even you did not complete the all credentials of an advanced certification like DBA, etc.

     

    After now when you take an other exam on the same track, you will probably get an other MCTS certification.

    And one more will grant you MCPD (or MCITP) certification.

  • Hi PCOLTAU,

    The answer to your question is no. You neither become MCTS or MCP (MCP is no longer a certification). The reason exam is called “TS” because it’s one of the two TS exams, which you need to become MCTS.

    Once you pass this exam (70-536), you get access to a site which used to be known as MCP Member Site where you can download your transcript etc. They still call it MCP Member site but I don’t want you to get confused thinking that you will be able to get a Certificate stating that you are an MCP or can use the logo, because those no longer exist.

    Not sure if you will be pleased to hear this but I hope this answer your question.

  • You will get MCTS, not MCP.

    It says on my MS Learning Transcript:

    TS: Microsoft .NET Framework - Application Development Foundation

    Hope this helps!
