  • OOAD is a software engineering technique not specific to Microsoft technologies i.e. it's not something that requires a Microsoft technology to implement.  Furthermore, UML is managed by the Object Management Group (OMG) and recognised by International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as an industry standard for modelling software-intensive systems.  Given this, any certifications should be implemented and governed by those institutions, not Microsoft. 

    I also can't see any benefit in Microsoft providing certifications in OOAD/UML given that there are already a number of certifications/qualifications already available on the market.

  • So Mr. Wharty. 

    Could you better suggest for this standard?
