MOS – Microsoft Office Specialist certification

Microsoft Office Specialist in Excel – Intermediate 1 (MOS 2/4)

Brief Outline

Not only could this session contribute to your training and preparation for the MOS exam for Excel 2010, but it can also be a stand-alone Excel session teaching you some specialist skills and functions of the program.

Intermediate 1 & 2 are sessions that are both aimed at the same level and could be done in any order. The difference between the two sessions is purely down to the skills you will learn which means you don’t need to have done one session before doing the other.

Intermediate 1 amongst other skills focuses mostly on the skills for presenting your Excel work professionally, both on-screen and in hard copy.

Learning Outcomes
