MCAS changing its name to MOS (That’s what we used to call it)

Posted by Rubel Khan on May 12, 2010

Certiport just announced that as of June 2nd 2010, MCAS program will be formally renamed Microsoft Office Specialist 2007 (MOS 2007). Bellow is their announcement:

“In the coming months, the Microsoft Certified Application Specialist (MCAS) program will undergo a branding change. As an ongoing commitment to you, we share this information in advance of our official public announcement to enable you to get started making necessary preparations and adjustments at your testing center. Please bear in mind that today’s message is intended only for Certiport Testing Centers.

Starting June 2, 2010, the MCAS program will be formally renamed Microsoft Office Specialist 2007 (MOS 2007) in the following countries:

  •     United States
  •     Australia
  •     Canada
  •     India
  •     Japan
  •     Korea
  •     Puerto Rico
  •     United Kingdom

To help clarify this change, please review the following documentation: 

The decision to re-brand MCAS to MOS came only after careful and lengthy consideration at Microsoft and Certiport, primarily because MOS has proven to have stronger branding equity and visible alignment with the Microsoft Office Products. We strongly believe MOS represents a more recognizable message for customers and provides a simpler marketing effort for Certiport, Microsoft and all business partners.

Please bear in mind that we have made every effort to ensure this branding transition is as simple and painless as possible. We acknowledge the change may present short-term business and operational challenges, however we are also very confident the long-term benefits will significantly outweigh these challenges. We sincerely appreciate your support and cooperation through the transition, and wish you great success with the newly branded MOS 2007 program!

Best Regards,

Neill Hopkins
