A major important milestone in the step to get information workers creditations in the use of Office products. Just last year I completed the SharePoint Study guide for Microsoft Office, and now in not the too distant future (in fact in late August to be precise), Office 365 will get an exam study guide. In fact, the author happens to be my co-author for the brilliant study guide for Office 2010 (including SharePoint of course!).
This is I think a major move on the part of Microsoft who are keen to ensure that educational establishments, armed with the free offer of Office 365 will now also be able to offer courses, examinations and creditations for information workers to place on their CVs, and shout to the world they are proficient in the use of Office 365!Here’s a bit of information captured from the relevant page:
“Microsoft and Certiport are pleased to announce the coming addition of Microsoft Office 365 to the suite of Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) 2010 certifications—the world’s most recognized, standards-based credential chosen by individuals seeking to validate their aptitude and proficiencies on Microsoft Office. On August 31, 2012, MOS Certification candidates will have an eighth option and opportunity to build competences and distinguish themselves with skills that are in demand among today’s employers.”
