The Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) (formerly known as Microsoft Certified Application Specialist (MCAS)) certification is the known standard to validate one’s skills in the Microsoft Office applications as well as Windows Vista.
The MOS / MCAS proves that one has obtained the skills that organizations and agencies rely on. Candidates who pass the exams have proven that they are the most qualified to work in an office environment most efficiently and productively.
Furthermore, organizations that screen for the MOS certification as the tool for employee skills measurement in hiring, promoting, identifying and retaining staff members will benefit from a streamlined recruitment process, greater individual productivity, and increased employee satisfaction.
