Microsoft Office Certifications


Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification is the premier credential chosen by individuals seeking to validate their skills and advance their careers.

With three certification levels, the MOS credential allows individuals to validate their skills and progress toward their career goals.

With the new MOS 2013 exams, testing candidates are presented with a project that they must complete. Rather than being a series of required tasks, individuals now must complete a project that delivers a better indicator of real world Office 2013 use. As such, individuals are measured on their performance at a deeper skill level.

At the Core and Expert level, individuals get certified in specific Microsoft Office applications. At the Master level, individuals must successfully complete 4 certification exams – 3 required and 1 elective.
