MOS Certification


We offer the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) test and practice tests/training. We currently have licenses for the practice program, GMetrix, that can be used remotely. Please email Prof Dev for instructions and the license code. The MOS test can be schedule through the Prof Dev office once we return to campus.

Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS)

To become a Microsoft Office Specialist, you need to pass a certification exam to verify your skills. Having the certification qualifies you for a pay differential if you are in any of the following employee categories: Confidential, Supervisory, AFT 1521A, and Building Trades. Certification must be renewed periodically. Check with Yasmin in Personnel to find out how to be reimbursed for the cost of the test.

A training program and practice tests are installed on two of our computers in the PDC (LARC 200). The Professional Development Center is a certified testing center so you can purchase the voucher from us and take the test here. Call 2712 or email to arrange a time to use the program and/or set up a test. (We charge a proctor fee of $20, which is waived for LAVC employees.)
