Community Business College Offers PowerPoint 2016 Certification Exams As Part of Beta Test
Community Business College will offer free Microsoft PowerPoint certifications and is looking for participants to help beta test online exams.
The beta testing will be offered free to volunteers who would like to participate and will take place between May 2, 2016 through May 30, 2016 (or until enough exams have been administered to provide complete results).
These exams are the official acknowledgement from Microsoft that the holders possess levels of competence for the level designated on the certificate.
The purpose of the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification is to allow people who have the skills needed to get the most out of them by earning a certificate in a specific Office program. Microsoft states that one of the advantages of earning an MOS certification is that holding a MOS certification can earn an entry-level business employee as much as $16,000 more in annual salary than uncertified peers.
The college began working with the Microsoft testing administrator earlier in 2016 to assist in beta testing the suite of programs that make up Microsoft Office 2016. Beginning with Microsoft Word (http://www.cbcwebcollege.com/

Exams are primarily performance-
Each beta exam takes approximately 2 hours to complete (although some examinees may finish quicker).
Community Business College's director, Dan Guerra, said, "Our goal in participating in this high technology project is to test the functionality of the updated exams and their new delivery engine environment. Modesto, with its new initiatives to kick start its technology sector, is a great place for this to happen. It's also an excellent opportunity for people in the Central Valley to earn an official technology certification at no cost to them."
For this round of testing, a particular emphasis is being placed on high school students. Students who score high on the certification exams may be invited to The Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship. This event is a global competition that tests students' skills on Microsoft Office applications. Participating in this competition provides eligible students with an excellent opportunity to showcase Microsoft Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint skills, have some fun, impress student colleagues and gain recognition.
