NCK Tech Awards Microsoft Certifications to Prepare Students for Careers

North Central Kansas Technical College (NCK Tech) is pleased to recognize those students who have achieved Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) and Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) certifications, an industry-recognized, standards-based credential for validating Microsoft Office skills.

The MOS certification is recognized globally by academia and business as the premier credential for individuals seeking to validate their knowledge, skills and abilities related to the Microsoft Office applications.   Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) is an introductory Microsoft certification for individuals considering a career in technology. MTA certification addresses a wide spectrum of fundamental technical concepts, assesses and validates core technical knowledge, and enhances the student’s technical credibility. NCK Tech began offering the Microsoft certifications this academic year to the students in the Information Technology and Business Technology programs. The certifications are administered through NCK Tech’s partnership with Certiport, a Pearson VUE business.

“We are pleased NCK Tech has successfully implemented the Microsoft IT Academy program and is awarding these valuable MOS and MTA certifications which help so many students prepare for further education and build their resume,” said NCK Tech President Eric Burks.  “As more students realize the value of certification, our programs will continue to grow and our students will have a positive impact on the local workforce.”
