and I mean that in a way that says... damn!

Apparently Microsoft made a recent(?) change to the MCT program that allows you to get your MCT if you have the MCAD cert. (As opposed to needing what they referred to as premiere certs, such as MCSD, MCDBA & MCSE). Please understand, I'm not knocking the MCAD cert, in fact I had one before I got my MCSD(.NET) and MCT.

However, I think it devalues the MCT cert a bit (no offense Robin, you know I love ya...) by making it more accessible. It was always my understanding that the MCT cert was for those who had worked they way to the top (not just to the middle and then hopped off).

Am I just being grumpy? Perhaps, although I don't see it that way. I know Microsoft has a new system in place which limits what you can teach based on your competencies, which I agree with, but it still seems like a way to milk more $$ out of the program (and $400 per year is a little steep to begin with) by opening it to more folks and then limiting what those extra folks can actually teach.

shame on you Bill... ;) Posted on Monday, May 23, 2005 5:32 PM General Interest | Back to top
