  • Hi Vikas,

     

    This link will tell it all: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-vstudio.aspx#tab1

    You can choose the programming language during the exam. When the exam starts you'll be asked if you want C# or VB

    When looking at the site you'll find out that there is a distinction between windows applications and web certifications. Your choice.

  • Following the link that Vikas provided you will also see that you can focus your certification efforts on various versions of the .NET Framework - the .NET Framework 4 exams have just been release (some are still coming in the near future).

    You will start by working towards a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist certification (MCTS) and then you can take further exams to earn a Microsoft Certified Professional Developer certification (MCPD).

    Good luck!

  • Hello Vikas,

    I see that your questions are answered in advanced.

    But I want to add my reply too.

    Actually you are looking for .NET framework developer certifications. Here is a poster showing Microsoft Visual Studio Certification Paths

    You will see that there are ASP.NET Developer certification path, Windows Developer path and Enterprise Developer path.

    So you can focus on the first two certification paths.

    The language VB.NET or C# is not related with the certification, you can choose one of them when the exam starts.

    I wish you success in your exams.
