New Content for 2014!

Introducing Office for Mac Accreditation by Microsoft.

Microsoft has created a pilot program specifically designed to train and accredit Apple techs and consultants on Microsoft Office for Mac and Office 365 suites. The "Microsoft Office for Mac Accredited Support Professional" accreditation is a half-day long program, and will take place the day prior to each MacTech event in 2014. This new Microsoft accreditation program is training and evaluation focused on the issues every consultant and tech should know when advising on or supporting Microsoft Office for Mac, and Microsoft Office 365, with a focus on Apple users.

All registered attendees to MacTech's 2014 events, are welcome to attend the course, and become accredited, at no charge.
Space is limited. If you haven't already registered for MacTech Conference, you can do so now. You can also see Microsoft's announcement of the program on the Office for Mac blog.

Learn. Network. Get Accredited.

The pilot accreditation program will cover topics such as installation; Office for iPad; Office Web Apps; best practices in configuration, preferences, settings and use; licensing options; cross platform features; sharing documents with OneDrive, SharePoint, and more; troubleshooting and common questions; available support resources; and more. The accreditation is specifically designed for Apple techs supporting others using Microsoft Office for Mac, and Office 365. At the end of the course, attendees will be evaluated on the content presented, and those who demonstrate sufficient knowledge will become a "Microsoft Office for Mac Accredited Support Professional."

Strut your stuff.

Once obtained, attendees will receive an accreditation certificate from Microsoft, and be able to display the new accreditation graphic on their web sites and other promotional materials, as well as in their credentials. This is a great way that techs and consultants can promote additional demand for your services.
