Community Business College Is Beta Testing Microsoft Access 2016 Certification Exams
As part of the beta testing of Microsoft's official exams Community Business College will offer free Microsoft Access '16 certification vouchers. The college is looking for participants to help beta test these new online exams.
The Microsoft Access beta testing will be offered free to volunteers who would like to participate and will take place in August, 2016 (or until enough exams have been administered to provide complete results).
Officials at Community Business College report they will be starting the testing with current students and graduates but are also opening the testing opportunity to members of the public who would like a no-cost attempt at earning technical computing certifications.
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's MOS support materials state that one advantage of earning an official certification is that holding an MOS certification can earn an entry-level business employee as much as $16,000 more in annual salary than uncertified peers.
These exams are the official acknowledgement from Microsoft that the holders possess levels of competence for the level designated on the certificate.
Community Business College's director, Dan Guerra, made the following statement regarding the project:
"Participating in the beta testing of the certification of this relational database software will help bring some of the Silicon Valley know-how to the Central Valley and help the college serve both its student population and the surrounding community as well. High technology begets more high technology and the Access project is a prime example of that."

Exams are primarily performance-
Each beta exam takes approximately 2 hours to complete (although some examinees may finish quicker).
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.
