Learn about the Microsoft Office Specialist Certification, the benefits of becoming certified, and the three levels of certification.
- [Narrator] Let's review the three different levels of MOS certifications that you can obtain. First the Microsoft Office Specialist, or MOS, is an individual who has demonstrated expertise by passing a certification exam in one or more Office programs such as these listed here. Moving on to the second level is our Microsoft Office Specialist Expert. Now this is an individual who has taken their knowledge of Office to the next level demonstrating their mastering of more advanced features based on Word and Excel. The MOS Expert exams for Word and Excel consist of one exam for each program.
To obtain the Expert level you need only pass the Word Expert exam or the Excel Expert exam. Our final level is the Microsoft Office Specialist Master. A MOS Master is an individual who has demonstrated their expertise in Word and Excel by passing both MOS Expert exams. The MOS Master must also pass the PowerPoint exam and one of the elective exams listed here. This course is all about preparing you for the Word 2016 Microsoft Office Specialist Expert exam.
