Thirty-six West Shore Community College students have earned a total of 64 industry recognized Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certifications to help them become career ready. The students participated in the education technology program to help them develop their Microsoft Office skills. 

In addition to the students, the group included two WSCC staff members and a faculty member who chose to seek the certifications as professional development.

According to Dr. Amy Wojciechowski, Business Division Chair, “The Microsoft Office Specialist program gives students in-demand technology skills that not only increase their desktop computing proficiency immediately, they also improve their workforce readiness and put them above the pack when looking for a job.”

The MOS certifications are delivered in the college’s authorized Certiport Testing Center as part of the business program curriculum.  Funding for the exams was provided by a grant from the Michigan Department of Education.
