  • There aren't any currently. I don't think there will be from Microsoft either. MS focuses on certifications that show technical proficiency primarily and Expression gets into too much of the gray area of UI design. So far, no sign of any tests related to these tools from Microsoft. I'm not sure though if there are third-party certifications that make use of these tools as part of their web design proficiency certifications though.

    I'm not one for getting certified; however, in my HTML/XHTML learning adventure, I've used w3schools extensively for research, and have noted that they have all kinds of certs. I don't know what they contain, since I have nowhere near the experience necessary to even think about getting certified.

    Granted, these certs are more for coding, rather than the whole of Expression Studio, but you may find them useful.

    Go to: <www.w3schools.com> if you're interested.

  • I doubt there is, or should be, a certication in EW itself.  It's just the tool, and understanding the technology is what matters.  No one cares if you use EW, Dreamweaver, NotePad, etc..  It's the result that matters, and you could get the same result (with different levels of ease) in all of them.  And, on the other side, you could be expert in EW, and create poor websites.
