With only the final touches needed to complete his MSc dissertation, Petroleum & Gas Engineering student, Shaho Mohamedali wanted to add MOS qualifications to his CV but only had a short window of opportunity, before returning home to Iraq.
On arrival at the exam session he wondered… could he take the ‘Specialist’ exams for all seven available applications in one day? Well, we’re flexible when we can be. Shaho had met the testing criteria for all seven applications. With his leaving date in mind, we agreed.
So yesterday Shaho sat and passed exams in Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, OneNote and SharePoint. Alas, time ran out and he had to wait until this morning to take his Access exam. But he’d gained his 7th pass by 10.40am and was free to enjoy the rest of his day in the Salford sunshine!
Not everyone wants certification in all seven applications – you can sit as many or as few as you wish. If you want to boost your CV whilst developing your existing IT skills…
