MOS 77-729 Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 Specialist Core Training Course Outline

Audience: Successful candidates will have a fundamental understanding of the PowerPoint environment and demonstrate the correct application of PowerPoint 2016. Candidates create, edit, and enhance presentations and slideshows. Presentation examples include professional-grade sales presentations, employee training, instructional materials, and kiosk slideshows.

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.

Course Location: This Microsoft PowerPoint Specialist Core training course can be delivered either at our London training venue or at your offices. 

Tailored Course Content: Course content can be customised to meet your specific requirements, with scheduled dates to suit you.
