Microsoft Certified Database Administrator or MCDBA

The Microsoft Certified Database Administrator (MCDBA) certification program credential is meant for database administrators, who will implement and administer Microsoft SQL Server databases. The certification is appropriate for individuals who derive physical database designs, develop logical data models, create physical databases, create data services by using Transact-SQL, manage and maintain databases, configure and manage security, monitor and optimize databases, and install and configure SQL Server. This certification program requires passing three core examinations and one elective examination. According to Microsoft, people who operate SQL Server 2005 should apply for other certifications such as the M.C.I.T.P. - Microsoft Certified I.T. Professional or M.C.T.S. - Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist, rather than applying for the M.C.D.B.A. - Microsoft Certified Database Administrator. The complete M.C.D.B.A. certification course lasts about 250 hours.
