Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS)

Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification is the world's most recognised computing qualification for
proving a person's skills and abilities in Microsoft's Office applications.


The NHS, the largest employer in Europe, worked with Prodigy Learning to create a MOS certification programme to raise standards and productivity. A survey of over 2,000 learners showed 90% of staff increased productivity!

Sample Certificate

Earning MOS certification can help individuals differentiate themselves in today's competitive job market. It helps broaden your employment opportunities by proving that you have advanced skills in Microsoft Office, which can result in higher earning potential. After gaining MOS certification, candidates get immediate access to a Digital Certificate and Transcript, as well as the MOS logo to put on your CV!

For Training Providers, MOS allows you add an internationally recognised certification to your training courses, attract new clients and generate increased revenue from walk-in testing.
