MCSD: App Builder certification validates that you have the skills needed to build modern mobile and/or web applications and services. Earning an MCSD: App Builder certification qualifies you for a position as an application developer.
Microsoft is phasing out Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA), Solutions Expert (MCSE) and Solutions Developer (MCSD) certifications. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the retirement deadline for some credentials has been extended to January 31, 2021. Those retired prior to the pandemic are void from this change.
ONLC Bundle purchasers and others working toward an active MCSA, MCSE or MCSD certification need to pass ALL the required exams before the 2021 deadline. ONLC cannot grant extensions nor exceptions of any kind. Additionally, retired courses are not applicable for ONLC's free retake option.*
Those new to certification should consider Microsoft's Role-based certifications.
You must pass one (1) elective exam AFTER achieving one of the listed MCSA certifications in order to earn MCSD App Builder.

This MCSD certification no longer has 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 thereby demonstrating your investment in deepening and broadening your skills. Each time you pass a certification exam a new entry is added to your transcript and never expires.
Microsoft certification exams are performance-based requiring you to complete specific tasks during the exam to prove your knowledge and understanding of the technology rather than memorizing information. The best way to prepare for a Microsoft certification exam is by having hands-on experience with the technology.
ONLC Training Centers is a Microsoft Gold Learning Partner. We provide authorized Microsoft training that will help you prepare for certification exams.
