Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS)

Microsoft Office Specialist certification is recognised worldwide as demonstrating the skills needed to get the most out of Microsoft 365 and Office 2021 applications.

The certificates demonstrate a good understanding of the workings of Office software such as Word and Excel. The GMetrix software allows you to work towards taking MOS tests at your own pace. You choose which test to practice for and take at the York campus. Microsoft Office Specialist training and certification is available for free to staff, students and alumni of York St John University.
