The Microsoft Office Specialist Program provides industry-leading assessments of skills and knowledge through our new project-based testing, giving students and professionals real-world exercises to appraise their understanding of Microsoft Office. This guarantees that every certified user has demonstrated the ability to command the full features and functionality of Microsoft Office, preparing them for future academic or workforce opportunities.
Microsoft certification gives students and workforce candidates the power to chart their own course, fulfill their ambition, and realize their potential.
There are three levels of certification: Specialist, Expert, and Master. Each certification level propels a student further on the path to greater achievements and advancement. Students can certify at all three levels, and should try to obtain the highest level possible. The market demands, and caters to, those who possess the most education and skills.
Becoming a Specialist is good. Becoming an Expert is better. And becoming a Master is best.
The Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship is a global competition that tests students’ skills on Microsoft Office Word, Excel® and PowerPoint® (2016 or Office 365 and Office 2019). Top students are invited to represent their respective countries at the World Championship. In some countries or regions, students are required to participate in a National Championship, and the winners of that event continue on to the World Championship.
In its 18th year, the 2019 Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship attracted more than 850,000 unique candidates from 119 countries who competed to demonstrate their mastery of Microsoft Office products.
