MOS 2016: better than ever

We made the new MOS a much more powerful instrument for assessing student skills and preparing students for real-world application.

Each exam helps catalyze your success

MOS certification gives students a commanding competitive edge in today’s academic and professional environments.

From single projects to multiple projects

By migrating from a single, large project for the certification exam to multiple, smaller projects, we’ve made the newest MOS a much more powerful instrument for assessing student skills.

Students and teachers will now be able to devote more time to practicing and mastering on the specific skills tested in each smaller project. Students can complete a smaller project, continue their studies, and complete the next project.

This improvement allows students to focus their studies and enhance the learning process. It also allows the exams to test skills more broadly and deeply.

Achieve higher levels of certification

There are three levels of certification: Specialist, Expert, and Master. Each certification level propels a student further on the path to greater achievements and advancement. Students can certify at all three levels and should try to obtain the highest level possible. The market demands, and caters to, those who possess the most education and skills.

  • SPECIALIST: Become certified as a specialist in one of Microsoft’s premiere office technologies.
  • EXPERT: Get a higher credential for two of the job market’s most in-demand technologies: Word and Excel.
  • MASTER: Reach the highest level by passing PowerPoint, Access or Outlook, and the two Expert exams.

MOS digital badges

Digital badges are web-enabled versions of a credential, certification or learning outcome. Representing your credential as a badge gives you the ability to share your skills online in a way that is simple, trusted and can be easily verified in real time.

Placing 3rd in the MOS competition in Park City, Utah, was a tremendous experience for me. I learned so much from these courses and certification exams that I never could have from college alone. These certifications and the competition have become huge resume boosters for my future as I have since been hired by Microsoft.
