The Microsoft Office PowerPoint Hands-On learning program is designed to prepare the student for the Microsoft Certified Application Specialist (MCAS) exam for PowerPoint. This program replaces what was called the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) PowerPoint. In fact, the MCAS now encompasses all levels of usability. Microsoft previously had three levels of PowerPoint training, now there is only one level and one test. You also have the option of taking just the one day, PowerPoint Basic User Class. The full two day program, however, offers a deep perspective of MS PowerPoint 2013 and demonstrates all tricks, shortcuts and time saving techniques for the program. The full two day class prepares you for certifcation and makes you the “go-to” person in your office for the application.
