The Digital Skills centre offers the following certification programmes:-
Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS)
This is a globally recognised qualification. Having a Microsoft Office Specialist certificate on your CV demonstrates that you have gained the necessary expertise to competently use Microsoft applications, giving you a competitive advantage when job hunting as well as in the workplace. It will significantly increase your confidence, skills and employability. It will serve to objectively validate your IT skills and assist in your advancement in your chosen career. Each certificate is a qualification in its own right, so you can take just one, or as many as you like.
Microsoft refers to it as the "only comprehensive, performance-based certification program approved by Microsoft to validate desktop computer skills".
Mac Users - Please Note: Studying for an MOS Exam requires the use of an app called GMetrix. Currently this only works on Windows PCs and so you won't be able to prepare for an MOS exam using a Mac. You may, of course, use a PC on the LSBU Campus if this is convenient for you.
Adobe Certifications (ACP)

It offers a wide range of modules including Computer Essentials, Word Processing and IT Security. Candidates take tests in the modules which are most relevant to their educational and professional requirements.
