What are the different Excel Certifications and should I get one?

“Are you experienced in Excel?” is a common, yet poorly-worded question asked by supervisors and hiring managers throughout the professional world. What exactly do they mean by “experienced”? How do you answer such an ambiguous question?

Fortunately, Microsoft saw this frustration and created certifications for all its products. To be certified in Excel means that Microsoft deems your Excel skill set to be recognized as substantial. This removes the relative value judgment from your answer (“I am very capable”) and replaces it with a more qualified judgment (“According to Microsoft, I am very capable”).

But, why become certified? Excel is easily one of the most in-demand skills required by employers. To hold an Excel certification is like having Microsoft write a recommendation letter speaking to your Excel abilities. It allows employers to know that you possess a certain level of knowledge and mental acuity when using the software, which can speak louder than just being someone who is known as being “really good” at Excel.

Excel certification is offered in two different forms: Specialist and Expert. Which level is right for you depends on a lot of different factors, such as familiarity, industry, and ambition, to name a few. The Specialist certification is based more on general Excel skills and functionalities. The Expert certification is much more advanced and specific.

How do you become certified? By taking a test; specifically, a 50-minute, 30+ question, task-based exam. If you score a 70% or higher, you become certified! Once certified, you are certified for life.

Is certification worth it? That is a personal choice. But if you are interested in pursuing professional development and being able to clearly communicate your skills, it would certainly be something to think about. After all, the difference between “what we know” and “what other people know, we know” can have an impact on our futures.

More About the Excel Certification Classes

To ensure that you pass the Excel certification exam, you will take three group classes: FundamentalsIntermediate, and Advanced, for a total of 21 hours of group-class training. In these classes, you'll learn calculations, basic to advanced functions, graphs, formatting, tables, printing, Pivot Tables, macros, What-If Analysis and more. Based on just the group classes (with the supplemental video suites and free retakes if you need), you'll have the skillset to pass Specialist Exam. You'll also get two hours of additional prviate training to tie up some loose ends and get additional practice.

The Expert Exam is more specific and advanced, so we provide an additional four hours of private training in that package. For details on topics covered on that exam, see the Excel Expert Certification  Program page.

What is the difference between the Excel Specialist & Excel Expert Certifications?

While both the Specialist and Expert Certifications are official Microsoft certifications (with 50-minute exams administered by Certiport), the Expert Certification is a higher level of certification and covers more advanced topics.

Here is a basic topic comparison between the certifications:

Excel Specialist: Create and manage worksheets and workbooks, manage data cells and ranges, creating tables, perform operations with formulas and functions, and create charts and objects.

Excel Expert: Manage workbook options and settings, apply custom data formats and layouts, advanced formulas, and advanced charts and formulas.

As you can see, the Expert Certification takes each topic to the next level. Essentially, the Specialist exam covers topics mostly covered in our Fundamentals and Intermediate classes, while the Expert exam cover topics from all three levels. 




Client Testimonials
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. 03/09/2018- Ryan B. attended Excel Specialist Certification Bundle
