Welcome to the Microsoft IT Academy
I'm really excited to be teaching this spectacular class. I hope this website will be both helpful and useful for you this year. The Microsoft IT Academy is delivered in two classes.
(1) MSITA--A (Word, PowerPoint, and Publisher) Students will use Microsoft Office 2010 Word, PowerPoint, and Publisher. Certifications are Word, Word Expert, and PowerPoint.
(2) MSITA--B (Excel and Access) Students will use Microsoft Office 2010 Excel and Access (spreadsheets and databases). Certifications are Excel, Excel Expert, and Access.
• Students have the opportunity to take Microsoft assessments in these five areas to achieve Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certifications. Tests are paid by DPI and Microsoft. These certifications are recognized by industry and they look great on college applications and resumes!
• This course includes Online Instruction, Teacher Instruction, Self-Paced Instruction
This is an awesome opportunity for you to earn 6 different certifications and become a Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS).
