The Microsoft Certified Database Administrator (MCDBA) certification, which validates one's knowledge and skills in SQL Server 2000 databases, has been retired since 2012. Those who earned this certification prior to 2012 will still hold the credentials, but it will be categorized as a Legacy certification by Microsoft. Microsoft recommends choosing from two currently offered SQL Server certifications: Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) Data Management and Analytics, and Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) Business Applications. MCSE Data Management Analytics certifies that one has the advanced skills in SQL administration necessary to manage data centers, whether in-person or through the cloud. MCSE Business Applications certifies expert level knowledge in Microsoft Dynamics 365 technology, as well as additional business knowledge in areas such as operations, customization and configuration, retail, and talent. Because they are expert level, each of these certifications require prerequisite courses and certifications. Microsoft does offer online and instructor led training options for both certifications.
