The course begins with an Induction and Key Concept session. The sessions explain the resources available – a comprehensive e-learning course, practice projects, Microsoft textbooks and GMetrix practice software – and will set you off on your MOS Excel journey by exploring one of the core pillars of Excel: formulae and functions.
After the initial session, the remainder of the course will be delivered through e-learning, practice projects and additional Key Concept sessions. Attendance at Key Concept sessions is optional, but recommended, as they explore principle features in detail and are an opportunity to get help from the course team (or we can be reached anytime through email or the MOS Yammer group).
Optional Key Concept 2 sessions will be held on Wed 9th May, 13:00 - 15:00 (Llandaff) or Thu 10th May, 11:00 - 13:00 (Cyncoed). Key Concept 3 sessions will be held on 30th May, 13:00 - 15:00 (Llandaff) or Thu 31st May, 11:00 - 13:00.
Exam sessions are scheduled for 13th June (13:00 or 15:00), 14th June (11:00), 15th June (10:00), 19th June (13:00), 18th July (13:00), 18th Sep (13:00) or 20th Sept (09:30) - but more may be added on request.
The amount of learning time depends on your current Excel knowledge, but as an estimate:
Classroom teaching: 2 - 6 hours
E-learning: 15 -20 hours
Practice projects and GMetrix exam practice: 5 - 9 hours
Certification exam: 50 minutes.
For a total of between 23 - 36 hours.
