PENDLETON - Blue Mountain Community College has adopted the globally-recognized Microsoft Office Specialist certification to work in tandem with Microsoft Office application training offered by BMCC through current Business Technologies courses.

Named an authorized testing center by Certiport, Inc., the administrator of the Microsoft Office Specialist program, BMCC is authorized to administer testing for the complete package of Microsoft Office applications.

Microsoft Office Specialist certification is obtainable only for those who possess advanced understanding of the Microsoft Office applications, as taught by BMCC, and validates those skills with a global standard of excellence.

Beginning April 1, BMCC will offer several courses designed with approved courseware for Microsoft Office Specialist certification. These completed courses will help to prepare students for the certification for Microsoft Word at core and expert levels and Microsoft Excel at the core level.

For more information, contact Melinda Platt at 278-5737 or register for classes by calling the BMCC Distance & Extended Learning office at 278-5763.
