Future-proof your career

Value to Employees

Learn real-world skills that can be instantly implemented into your workflow. No more late nights trying to perfect a PowerPoint presentation once you understand a game-changing command that is just a keystroke away.  

Becoming certified elevates your professional value and the opportunity for advancement. A certified member said, certification “changes everything.”

Land your dream job

Value to Job Seekers

Applying for a job? Get a leg up on other applicants with a MOS certification on your resume. While others claim Office proficiency, you have proven skills verified by Microsoft.

On average, you’ll earn 15% more than those without certification. If you’re an older worker, MOS certification ensures that you won’t get aged-out. Maximizing competence improves confidence, so you’ll stand out, too.  

Build a productive team

Value to Employers

MOS certification guarantees an immediate return on investment, with employees saving hours because they no longer stumble with software. They emerge as happier, more efficient workers with faster turnarounds and fewer mistakes.

Trained teams are self-sufficient and require less supervision, removing time-consuming tasks from their supervisor’s plate. Everyone becomes more productive when employee retention soars.

Certification is a game-changer.

You can do this. With RedCape’s guidance, you will increase your skill level, and your self-confidence. Mastering these skills has changed my life: business and personal.

Achieving MOS certification in the programs I use every day has saved me at least two hours a week (+100 hours per year). Additionally, I’ve saved the executive I support 3-4 hours per week. I’ve done the math. We’ve eliminated an incredible amount of unessential work for both of us, which translates into massive amounts of cost savings and efficiencies.

Everything changed with certification.

Ever since I became MOS expert certified, everything just spiraled in a really good way.

The value of the program speaks for itself with the amazing pass rate!

RedCape is there to help you succeed in your goal. The study group and practice tests really prepare you for your first exam. Once you complete and pass your first exam, then it really gets easier. Once I got that first exam under my belt, I was less nervous about the others!

What is MOS certification?

A Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification recognizes those with advanced, demonstrable skills in the powerful Office suite of software. Each app—Word, Excel, Outlook, One Note, SharePoint, PowerPoint and Access—has its own exam. 

Is there certification for Office for Mac?

No, Microsoft only allows certification in Office for Windows at this time.

Can I get certified in Office 365?

Office 365 and Office 2019 are currently the same exams. There is not a separate Office 365 certification.

How long does my certification last?

Microsoft Office Specialist certifications will never expire. They might become out-of-date, as new versions of Office are released, but you will forever have those certifications.

What if I am not in the United States?

You can get certified from anywhere in the world. Our program allows for members to study and take exams online from any location.

What is the time commitment?

Here is what you can expect for the time commitment:

  • STUDYING – We suggest 10-20 hours of study time per exam. This typically depends on the exam that you are studying for.
  • MONTHLY CLASSES – RedCape Academy training classes take place once a month. These classes are typically 60 minutes, plus live Q&A. Recordings available in the on-demand course library.
  • MONTHLY MEETING – Check-in meetings are also every month. Members can join us for the 60-minute meeting, or can watch the recording at a later time.
  • EXAM TAKING – Each certification exam is 50 minutes. Our online testing center offers convenient day, evening, and weekend testing to accommodate members across the globe.

Not Ready Yet?

If you need to wait another year before pursuing certification because you don’t feel ready, we have classes that will help you assess and increase your skills, boost your confidence, and help you understand what is being tested on the exams.
