Office Technology Skills - MOS (NDP.OFSK.MOS)


This short-term certificate is tailored to fit the needs of a student with no previous office experience or a student who wants to upgrade skills and apply for certification in the use of Microsoft Office business applications. In order to receive MOS certification, students must pay a fee to take an exam at a Microsoft approved location.  Emphasis is placed not only on current office technology needs but also on effective job-search techniques. Many of the courses meet requirements for other Office Technology degrees and certificates.
