The Mobile County Career Technical Education program is providing a career advanced opportunity to its students to become certified as a Microsoft Office Specialist 2013.

Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) 2013 is the world's most recognized information worker certification program. The new MOS 2013 exam includes  performance-based certification testing. The new exams improve upon previous live-in-the-application testing environment by enabling even more real-world functionality and project and standards-based outcome testing. In the MOS 2007 and 2010 exams, individuals are presented with a series of situations where they are asked to perform certain tasks in the application. These randomly-sequenced, performance-based scenarios stand independent from each other.

With the new MOS 2013 exams, testing candidates are presented with a project that they must complete. Rather than being a series of required tasks, individuals now must complete a project that delivers a better indicator of real world Office 2013 use. As such, individuals are measured on their performance at a deeper skill level.

Congratulations to these six Mary G. Montgomery student leaders.  Hopefully their achievememt will inspire many more MOS certifications earned by high school students.
