    Welcome to the forums ! :biggrin

    If you introduce yourself here first and tell us a bit about your background and IT knowledge/experience then someone may be able to advise you.

    Without knowing that it's difficult to suggest what you should do.

    In order to gain the professional developers cert (MCPD) from Microsoft, you have to pass a few MCTS exams...

    Ken is correct, you must start at the MCTS level so the answer is MCTS, you cannot get MCPD with obtaining multiple MCTS credentials first.

    Look at the MS site Ken linked too, there are also various microsoft diagrams in the back of their training kits, online and at their training centres.
