Congratulations to Holly Reynolds!
Holly is the first student to certify in 2015 at Smackover High School as a Microsoft Office Specialist. Holly received her certification in Microsoft Office 2013 – PowerPoint. Holly is a student in Mrs. Tammy Ward’s Digital Communications IV class which is a part of the Microsoft IT Academy.
The IT Academy program administrator is Mrs. Tammy Ward. Students in Mrs. Ward’s classes have been offered the opportunity to get industry certifications in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. The Academy is funded jointly by the Department of Career Education, the Department of Education and the Department of Workforce Services. The state’s investment provides a variety of curricula, lab resources, teacher training and certification materials for program members. Certification exams are normally around $100 each, but through this program students may certify free-of-charge.
Through the Academy, students have access to skills and certifications they need to improve their career opportunities and earning potential. Studies have shown that certified employees report a higher average salary of 5.4% over non-certified employees. (source: Global Knowledge, IT Skills and Salary Survey, Mar 2011) The Academy plays a significant role in preparing a technologically savvy workforce for our 21st-century global economy.
In addition to certification, students who choose to participate in the MOS Championships will be eligible to win prizes and the opportunity to compete in the World Championship in Orlando, Florida in June.
