I have 3 years of SQL experience using SQL server 2005 and 2008 R2. I was wanting to know if there is a list of certification sites to get certified in SQL Server 2005 or 2008R2. I mainly write queries. I do not deal with Database Administration or anything higher that that, just writing queries. I know that Microsoft has a certification and Brainbench also. I looked at Comptia but i did not see a certification for any sql. I looked at
sql-ex.ru but i do not feel comfortable giving them information since it is in another country.
Have you looked at this site from Microsoft? I believe the there are only two paths as of now SQL 2012 and 2008 with the 2008 version being dropped soon. You would be much better off going towards the 2012 cert as that is the future where 2005 is now several versions old.
