What does the programme offer?


The Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) is a globally recognised qualification. Having a Microsoft Office Specialist certification on your CV demonstrates that you have gained the necessary expertise to competently use Microsoft applications, giving you a competitive advantage when job hunting as well as in the workplace. It will significantly increase your confidence, skills and employability. It will serve to objectively validate your IT skills and assist in your advancement in your chosen career.

This program is supported by a tutor, who will be on hand during the sessions to guide you through the material to become exam ready.

Your course comes with official Microsoft exam vouchers. This means all exam fees are fully paid. Exams can be taken with us during the sessions.

GMetrix Practice Tests and Simulator

As soon as you enrol, you will be given access to your video based course material and a GMetrix system. The GMetrix system has two functions. The first is to allow you to practice your skills you will learn through the video based course material. The second function is to prepare you for the MOS exams via the exam simulator. This is the closest experience to the real exams. The GMetrix system is to be used in conjunction with the video based course material.

Upon passing the exams, you will receive five Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) 2016 certifications in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Access.
