MOS – Microsoft Office Specialist certification

MOS is an IT industry recognised certification created by Microsoft to cover all the programs in its Microsoft Office Suite. Gaining the MOS certification demonstrates that you have the skills needed to get the most out of the chosen Microsoft application.

Microsoft Office Specialist in Excel – Intermediate 2 (MOS 3/4)

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 2 amongst other skills focuses mostly on the skills for importing and analysing data.
