New to Certification. Queries!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm in 2yr Engineering in IT. I Want to do Certifications and improve my Resume. 

    I'm thinking of starting with MTA with Software Development Fundamentals as i'm interested in this field. I would love to get any advice as to how to proceed after this. 

    Also, i read that the MCSA Certification is retiring. So, what should be my step after that?

  • If you are doing an IT Engineering, then the MTA is probably too "low" for you. Your knowledge should be well above the MTA level. This is an entry-level certification which can be good if you want to get started on a certification path, but won't do much for your Resume.

    The step after MCSA is MCSE (which is not retiring any time soon). However, this is the "systems administrator" track of certification. If you are interested instead in the "software development" track (as seems to be implied by your choice of MTA), then instead of a MCSA/MCSE you will probably prefer the MCSD (Microsoft Certified Software Developer):
