What is MOS?

The Microsoft Office Specialist Program was developed as a result of a growing demand for skill certification and a workforce marketplace eager for global desktop performance standards.

  • Employers want to know that temporary or new hires can work in a computerised environment.
  • Employees want to know what skills they can take into the job market.
  • Schools want to graduate students with valuable core computer skills. 
  • Buyers of training services want to know if their investment translated into usable skills.
  • Computer support staff wants to know the skill level of a user calling a help desk.

The Microsoft Office Specialist program provides benchmarks to validate desktop computer skills in using Office. Test candidates' skills are compared with the Microsoft proficiency standard to measure true Microsoft Office aptitude.

How will MOS benefit me as an end user?

The Specialist designation distinguishes an end user as truly knowledgeable in using Office products. Having had their skills proven against the Microsoft Office proficiency standard, users ultimately become more competitive in a tight job market. Refined desktop computer skills contribute to individual efficiency in personal endeavours as well.

How will MOS benefit the employer?

The Microsoft Office Specialist program demonstrates employee competency and helps with both job placement and advancement. Hiring Specialists reduces the amount of training needed to bring new employees up to speed and contributes to the overall level of organizational effectiveness. Companies comprised of Office proficient employees also reduce the number of calls to the Microsoft computer assistance Help Desk, contributing to a lower total cost for Office ownership.
