Each semester while taking the certification tests, students are competing with others across the state.
Individuals with the highest scores in the least amount of time in each program are invited to the U.S. Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) championship which is located in Orlando, Fla., this summer. Baillee Shipps has been invited to attend the championship in Excel.
To date over 250 Syracuse students have received at least one or more national certifications.
