Microsoft Office Specialist Access certification

The new Access certification exam uses practical, performance-based scenarios to evaluate their real-world capabilities with project and standards-based outcome testing.

Certified candidates will demonstrate their ability to use principle Access features to independently create custom, browser-based database applications. Tasks will include creating and managing a database, building tables, creating queries, creating forms and reports.

The exam is more relevant than past exams, featuring comprehensive, project-based testing. This means candidates are responsible for demonstrating the ability to complete a realistic Microsoft Office Specialist Access project.
