This certification is designed for the person who wants a technical certification but does not want to pursue a career in the technical field. The technical certification is a basic, foundational level for skills in basic word processing, spreadsheet, general knowledge of a computer's hardware and operating system. It consists of three separate tests: Computer Fundamentals, Key Applications, and Living On-Line.

Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS)
Rockford Career College provides training in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and Outlook designed to address the material that will be covered on each of the respective tests.

These courses teach individuals to manage, configure and upgrade new and existing networks using Microsoft technology. This instruction is provided in a series of individual courses which correlates with the appropriate Microsoft Certification Tests.

It is important that students get more than technical information, they need hands-on training. RCC provides this type of training with practical experience to put that knowledge to work. As a result, we have a higher certification success pass rate (higher than the national average). It is this type of training that makes our students job-ready and valuable to employers.
