Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist or MCTS is a credential that proves a candidate’s skills and knowledge for a particular Microsoft product such as Windows Server, Exchange Server, Lync Server, Visual Studio or SQL Server. Although, MCTS certifications have now been phased out, those with existing MCTS certificates are valuable assets to a company as long as the company is using that technology in which the candidate is certified.
Consider taking an MCSA instead, if you wish to begin a lucrative career in IT using Microsoft technologies.
