St. Louis, MO (ACTE Annual Convention and Career Tech Expo) – November 17, 2011
Certiport (,
the leading certification test delivery solution provider for the global workforce and academic markets, today announced the availability of the Microsoft OneNote® 2010 certification exam as part of the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) 2010 certification suite.  

MOS is an industry recognized standards-based credential that enables individuals to tap the full features and functionality of Microsoft Office 2010 in order to validate their desktop skills and advance their careers.  Microsoft Office Specialist certification provides individuals with employable skills, employees with increased productivity, and employers with return on investment of their Microsoft Office deployment.

Details about the MOS 2010 OneNote Exam:

Certiport has worked with Microsoft since 1997 as the only official provider of the MOS certification program, the world’s most recognized credential chosen by individuals seeking to validate their skills on Microsoft Office.  Joining Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Access, Microsoft Outlook, and Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft OneNote is now a seventh exam option for individuals working to earn the MOS credential.

“More than 3.5 million people worldwide have taken one or more Microsoft Office Specialist exams, and OneNote is now an integral part of this popular program,” said Lutz Ziob, General Manager, Microsoft Learning.  “By earning the new OneNote certification, students learn to be more efficient when managing their school projects and assignments, and preparing themselves for optimal productivity in a future job or internship environment.  OneNote certification is also an ideal choice for professionals since it can increase their productivity and build their skill level.”

Individuals who certify on OneNote will possess the proven skills necessary to take full advantage of OneNote product functionality, and the Microsoft Office 2010 suite as a whole. OneNote 2010 is a digital notebook that provides a single place to gather notes and information, with the added benefits of powerful search capabilities and easy-to-use shared notebooks.  OneNote can increase productivity by reducing time spent searching for information across e-mail messages, paper notebooks, file folders and printouts.
“Businesses all over the world seek out employees with MOS certification because it increases job performance, efficiency and effectiveness; it proves the individual has the desktop productivity skills needed to succeed in today’s jobs,” said Ray Kelly, CEO, Certiport.  “Adding OneNote to the MOS certification suite will allow more individuals to play on their strengths and get certified, while offering academic institutions and corporations another avenue to maximize their Microsoft Office investment.”

The MOS OneNote 2010 certification is available now.  For more information, visit or contact Certiport at 801-847-3100.
