MCTS welcome kits arrive

MCTS: Windows Mobile 5.0 Application Development logo

Last week I received a package from Microsoft Singapore. It was my charter member certificate for the MCTS: Windows Mobile 5.0 Application Development certification. I sat the beta exam for this about 12 months ago, so it was good to finally receive the certificate, even if it was only a token piece of paper (the real value in certification lies elsewhere).

The interesting thing is that yesterday I also received a mass email sent out by Lutz Ziob, General Manager for Microsoft Learning. Due to the delays in shipping (some) welcome kits over the last few months Microsoft decided to provide each affected MCP with a free exam voucher.

I’ll probably use my free voucher to sit the 70-500: Windows Mobile Designing, Implementing, and Managing exam later this year, or should I hold out for the Windows Mobile 6 and/or Windows Embedded CE exams? I wonder how long it will be before these become available?

I was surprised when I looked on the MCP website that there are only 107 MCTS: Windows Mobile 5.0 Application Development certification holders as of October 2nd 2007.
