The Working Centre offers skills assessment tests to determine readiness to proceed for Microsoft Office Certification. Using G'Metrix pre-testing, we can see where a student's strengths and weaknesses lie and how they can prepare for the separate Certification tests in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Access.
Participants are gauged in both speed (as words per minute) and accuracy (as a percentage).
Introduction to Computers
It's generally recommended that students begin with Computer Basics if they are not proficient with Folder and File management, as these are essential skills for proceeding with computer training. Decisions are made on a case-by-case basis however, and based around the individual needs of the participant, so generally we recommend a one-on-one meeting with Kyle and Sandy to determine the best ways to proceed with classes.
Microsoft has developed a set of standards for measuring knowledge and efficiency in using their Microsoft Office products. Candidates are required to complete questions that are based on the objectives of the set Microsoft curriculum. Questions are incorporated inside the working interface of the corresponding application, such as Microsoft Word or Excel.
