Office Specialist Certification

The Microsoft Office Specialist Certification is one of the most widely recognized certifications in the country. This timed and proctored assessment evaluates a student’s ability to create a rich document, spreadsheet, database, etc. in a timed environment. Students will be provided access to the Office program of their choice (currently students can choose from Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, or Outlook) and a list of instructions. In addition to the step by step instructions, students are provided with a picture of the finished product. Participants that are able to create the requested document within the time frame earn the credential.

MOS testing is free to CCV students and offered only to CCV students. To schedule an assessment, call CCV-Rutland at 802-786-6996.

*Students can sit for more than one exam however, retakes of the same exam are not free. In other words retaking the Excel assessment after an unsuccessful attempt will not be at no cost.
