Microsoft Academy


As the only school with a Microsoft Academy on the North Shore, Long Bay College students have the unique opportunity to become Microsoft Office Specialists (MOS). We offer qualifications in all Microsoft Office products. These internationally recognised certifications provide students with real-world technology skills needed to thrive in today’s economy. 29% of tomorrow’s high-growth/high-wage positions will require Microsoft Office and related skills. 86% of hiring managers say that IT certifications are a major priority in evaluating candidates. In addition to the specialist certification, each year the top 6 students in the country are invited to represent New Zealand at the Microsoft Office Specialist World Championships (all expenses paid).
