Additional Information

Certification: All Office Specialist examinations are developed and reviewed by a team of experts who have extensive experience using Microsoft Office applications in diverse business and educational settings. The examinations are performance based, which means each is conducted within a live or simulated Microsoft Office program. Examination candidates are asked to perform a series of tasks to clearly demonstrate their skills. A typical Office specialist examination takes about 50 minutes and examinees are measured on both knowledge and efficiency. Certification is available immediately online after the exam, upon passing. Certification exams are taken in an AIT computer laboratory under invigilation conditions and cannot be taken at home.

This course is not suitable for beginners. Previous completion of an Introduction to PCs course/Computer Applications course is ideal. Alternatively, a very good working knowledge of Microsoft Windows/file management/Internet, mouse and keyboard skills is essential.
