Even though certifications are not easy and the national pass rate is 40%, 49 Melbourne High School students have certified as a Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) in Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint. These students learned these programs in their CBA class taught by Kathy Adams. They have gone on and passed an exam and received certifications that are designed for people in a variety of careers, not just computer careers.

 Roughly, 80-percent of employers and recruiters will look for candidates who have experience with Microsoft Office and 91% of hiring managers said they consider employee certification as a criterion for hiring. On average, Microsoft certified technologists earn 15% more than their uncertified peers. According to IDC/Microsoft, The Business Value of IT Certification, entry-level employees who hold Microsoft Office Specialist certification can earn up to $16,000 more, annually, than their peers.

 Congratulations to these students for their hard work and perseverance in obtaining their certifications in Microsoft Office 2016.
