This course teaches the skills and content included in the Microsoft® Office Specialist (MOS) Excel® Associate certification test.
By the end of this course, students will be able to perform fundamental tasks in Microsoft® Excel® in these domains:
- Manage Worksheets and Workbooks

This course is offered for Continuing Education Units. It will be posted on a clock hour transcript and will not apply to an Undergraduate Degree.
A PC with a Microsoft® Operating System is strongly recommended. The certification exam will be taken on a device with the Microsoft® operating system, and some of the features and user interface procedures are different on Apple® computers. Students must use a mouse. (Note: The exam, if taken at SPU, requires this.)
Students must use Excel® in Microsoft® 365®, which is available through SPU’s Computer Information Services department. You can download the software from the SPU Download Center or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for IT assistance.
Prior to the first class, you must create and register an account with Certiport. Detailed instructions are available in Appendix C.
