The Microsoft Access training program is designed to prepare the student for the Microsoft Certified Application Specialist (MCAS) exam for Access. This program replaces what used to be called the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS). In fact, Microsoft has designed the MCAS Access to include all levels of usability of the program. Microsoft previously had three levels of Access training, now with the changes for the 2010 product, there is only one level and one test.
You also have the option of taking a one day, MS Access Basic User Class. The full two-day program, however, offers a more extensive coverage of Microsoft Access and demonstrates the tricks, shortcuts and time-saving tools of the program. The full two-day class prepares you for the MCAS Access certifcation and makes you the “go-to” person in your office for MS Access.
