CCCCD Continuing Education Offers MCAD Classes

December 17 , 2002 - This spring, Collin County Community College District's Continuing Education Department is offering a series of Web application developer courses that prepare students for the Microsoft Certified Application Developer (MCAD) credential. This industry recognized standard is for professional developers who build Internet applications using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET and XML Web services. The first core course in this series of classes, "Programming ADO.NET," begins Jan. 4 at CCCCD's Courtyard Center, 4800 Preston Park Blvd. in Plano.

Other classes then follow on a monthly basis: "Developing MS ASP.NET Web Applications Using Visual Studio.NET," "Programming with Microsoft Visual Basic.NET," "Developing and Deploying MS BizTalk Server 2000 Solutions," and "Administering a MS SQL Server 2000 Database."

Last year, CCCCD partnered with Microsoft to begin offering advanced technology training through the Microsoft IT Academy Program. At that time, CCCCD was one of 18 institutions of higher education in the nation offering this specialized training. The program, totaling some thirty classes, prepares individuals to take exams in a number of Microsoft certifications: MCSA, MCSE, MCDBA and MCAD.
