The Microsoft Certified Database Administrator (MCDBA) certification provides proof of your ability to design, implement and manage SQL Server 2000 databases. Although this certification was retired on 30 September 2012, if you achieved the MCDBA certification before that date, it will still appear on your transcript as a legacy certification.
We recommend the following SQL Server certifications—choose one that reflects your job role, career goals and version of SQL Server:
Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE): Data Platform — for database professionals who build enterprise-scale data solutions on-premises or in cloud environments
Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE): Business Intelligence — for database professionals who develop and deploy business intelligence solutions and reports
