Why Get MOS Certified?

What is MOS certification? MOS stands for Microsoft Office Specialist. Microsoft products are used almost universally in the workplace. Employers look for proof that job candidates have the skills their resumes proclaim they have. MOS certification provides that proof.

You can be certified in Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint and other Microsoft Office applications. Currently-enrolled students and employees test for free. Certification is a test of your proficiency in the applications. There are study guides and sample tests available to help you prepare.

Visit 3mit.com/mcc/mos for complete information about MOS certification and for help to get started.
