I'm enrolled in the Excel for Business three part series of courses. The first course was informative and very helpful! Everything is very easy to understand and the instructor works with students to make sure they are following the main concepts. The first class is a general overview of shortcuts, basic formulas, and the most useful concepts of Excel that are most applicable to the world of business and general office management. This is an all-day class and yes there is a lot of information thrown at you, but even someone with no Excel experience should not find this hard to grasp because of how it is organized.

Why get certified in Microsoft Office at NYIM?

NYIM offers several industry-leading MOS certification programs and has high passing rates because of the various resources we provide you.

Learn more about Microsoft Certifications

What are the different Microsoft Office certifications? 

Microsoft offers certifications in all of its products. Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification can be achieved in either Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, or Access. To be MOS certified tells employers that you have a strong level of proficiency in that particular software.  

Microsoft Office Expert (MOE) certification is available only in Excel and Word. To be MOE certified tells employers that you have a high level of mastery in that particular software.

Master Certification is the highest level available and thus involves being MOE certified in both Word and Excel, as well as being MOS certified in PowerPoint and one additional software program of your choosing. In many ways, Master certification can be seen as the equivalent of a degree in Microsoft, if such a thing existed.

How do I get certified in Microsoft Office?

Certification is achieved by passing an online exam. The exams are administered by Certiport and available at authorized training centers. The test taker faces approximately 35 questions in a 50-minute time frame. Score a 70% or higher and you are certified! Once certified, you are certified for life. 

Here are the steps to getting certified in MS Office:

If you choose to obtain your certification with NYIM, we can walk you through the different exams and types of certification. We also provide bundled packages that include everything you need: group classes, supplemental online training materials, the Certiport exam, and proctoring for the exam. Our group classes and certification exam come with a free retake.

What are the various Microsoft Office Specialist Exams?

How much does a Microsoft Specialist Exam cost?

As of mid-2018, a Microsoft Specialist exam costs $96. However, we recommend that you purchase the Exam with a free retake for only $19 more at $115. Once you purchase the exam, you'll need to find an authorized Certiport testing center to take the exam. Proctoring fees will vary by location.

In all our Microsoft Certification programs, the exam (with a free retake) are included, as well as proctoring for the exam. 

Why should I consider a Microsoft certification?

A certification is basically an award created by Microsoft and bestowed upon those that prove they have a particular level of knowledge or skill. To be certified is to differentiate yourself from others when applying for a new job, or striving for a promotion. On a personal level, it is a way to test yourself and work towards achieving a goal that has the potential to open a lot of doors.

How can I prepare for a certification?

It is actually difficult to find study materials online.  You can find a lot of True/False or Multiple Choice questions, but these only test theoretical knowledge, and not applicable skills.

However, NYIM’s courses are custom designed to help you in this process.  While we do not “teach to the test”, we do create and constantly update a curriculum that Is second-to-none within the industry. We offer bootcamp and certification packages that help guide you through the various levels of learning, with some programs culminating with a private session with a certified trainer. We also offer opportunities for those taking the test to come in and practice taking the exam on a subscription-based service that very closely replicates the exam experience.
