MOS 77-728 Microsoft Expert 2016 Training Courses in London and Nationwide

Audience: Expert-level candidates for the Microsoft Excel 2016 exam have an advanced understanding of the Excel environment, and the ability to guide others to the proper use of the program’s features.

They will create, manage, and distribute professional spreadsheets for a variety of specialised purposes and situations. They will customise their Excel environments to meet project needs and to enhance productivity. Expert workbook examples include custom business templates, multiple-axis  financial charts, amortization tables, and inventory schedules. Candidate roles may include accountants,  financial analysts, data analysts, commercial bankers, and others.

MOS 2016 certification exams introduce a new performance-based format for improved testing of a candidate’s knowledge, skills and abilities using the MOS 2016 programs: 

  • MOS 2016 exam task instructions generally do not include the command name as in previous versions. For example, function names are avoided, and are replaced with descriptors. This means candidates must understand the purpose and common usage of the program functionality in order to successfully complete the tasks in each of the projects. 
  • The MOS 2016 exam format incorporates multiple projects. 

Course Duration: 2/3 days 

Course Types: Group bookings, public courses, 1-2-1 sessions, bespoke tailored courses and Saturday club.
