Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS)

A Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist certification proves your skills on a particular Microsoft technology, such as the Windows operating system, Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SQL Server, or Microsoft Visual Studio. MCTS certifications are no longer in development. However, your MCTS certification will remain valuable as long as companies are using the technology on which it certifies. Please check the retired certifications and retired exams pages for specific retirement dates.

To prove your expertise in building solutions to bring your business into the cloud, consider earning the new Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA) certification.
