Topic Summary

You are correct that it is only possible to truly assess that a student has learned new skills by conducting a test, under supervised test conditions, after checking via photo-ID the identity of the candidate.  Microsoft offer this type of test (called an MOS test)  at their test centre partners but it is rather expensive (the exam fee is many times the cost of one of our courses) due to the cost of premises, staff and administration.


Our certificate records participation rather than proof of skills.




The certificate demonstrates to potential employers that you have undertaken formal Excel training and are serious about developing excellent Excel skills.


If you feel that a MOS qualification is worth the cost our course will adequately prepare you for it.


Best Regards

I think learners should have been given at least one final test to gauge their full understanding of Excell skills and then be allowed to receive the completion certificate. For instance: a test with multiple choice questions.

Hello Dana,


Single user accounts are not required to take a test or turn in the exercises.

The certificates become available when you have viewed all of the video lessons in a course.


You can see your progress towards certificates on your My Account page.

     Are we required to take a test for the certification and do we need to turn in the exercises?
