    Hi all, my friends doing a msdst exam, but I have never heard of it. Is it like the MCDST or better? Is it even a real qualification?

    I've looked on google but it just relates me back to the mcdst.

    Thanks

    Never heard of it either. Likely to be the MCDST, but why not ask your friend?
