Microsoft Professional Program in Data Science

Careers in some of the most in-demand technical fields require a new set of skills. We created the Microsoft Professional Program to provide training on these core functional and technical skills, combining highly rated online instruction with hands-on labs, concluding in a final capstone project. The first program focuses on data science, in recognition of the significant demand for people with these skills.

Opportunities for data scientists—one of today’s hottest jobs—are rapidly growing in response to the exponential amounts of data being captured and analyzed. Companies hire data scientists to find insights and to solve meaningful business problems. Get the real-world knowledge and hands-on experience that can help you succeed in one of these new jobs.

Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer

MCSD: App Builder

This certification validates that you have the skills needed to build modern mobile and/or web applications and services.

Q. What is the difference between the new MCSD: App Builder specialty and the other MCSD specialties?

A. The new MCSD certification is aligned to Centers of Excellence, used by the Microsoft Partner Network to identify technical competencies that are widely recognisable by both Microsoft partners and customers. This credential does not have a recertification requirement. Instead, the achievement date signifies how you keep up with changes to the technology. Every year, you have the opportunity to re-earn the certification by passing an exam from the list of electives, demonstrating your investment in broadening or deepening your skills in the Center of Excellence. Each time you earn the certification, a new certification entry is added to your transcript. This process replaces the existing recertification requirement of taking a specific recertification exam every two years to prevent your certification from becoming inactive.

Q. What happens to the MCSD certifications that I earned prior to September 2016?

A. All MCSD certifications released prior to September 2016 will be retired on March 31, 2017.
All active MCSD certifications remain active on your transcript until retirement of the corresponding technologies, at which point the certifications are moved to the Legacy section of your transcript.

Q. Is there an upgrade path for me if I have previously earned an MCSD certification?

A. To recognise your efforts in keeping your existing MCSD certification up-to-date, all individuals with active MCSD certifications from the following list will earn the MCSD: App Builder certification for 2016, without the need to take additional exams:

  • MCSD: Universal Windows Platform
  • MCSD: Web Applications
  • MCSD: SharePoint Applications

Q. Is there an upgrade path for me if I was working toward an existing MCSD certification but have not yet earned it?

A. All individuals who have passed a qualifying elective exam since 01 January 2016, will be granted the corresponding MCSD: App Builder certification for 2016, without the need to take additional exams, if they have met all exam requirements.

Q. What is the recertification requirement for all MCSD specialties other than MCSD: App Builder?

A. To recertify your MCSD certification, you must pass the applicable recertification exam once every two years.
Recertification exams cover material from the exams taken to originally earn the credential, with particular emphasis on the most recent product and process changes.
