FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Two instructors who teach Microsoft application classes at the University of Arkansas Global Campus received the highest Certiport certifications this month and are now recognized as Microsoft Office 2010 Master Certified.
Mike Sypult, director of computer training services at the Global Campus, and Starlyn Danley, an instructor, became master certified in January in the Microsoft Office 2010 applications that they teach, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access. Both held expert-level certification prior to reaching the master level.
“Our clients benefit by receiving training from instructors who have the highest credentials offered by Microsoft,” Sypult said. “We are technically skilled to efficiently use the breadth of the applications’ features, and we train others so that they can increase their productivity. That translates into enhanced profitability for the clients we serve.”
Online registration and a list of computer training classes offered by the Global Campus in Fayetteville and Rogers are available at http://training.uark.edu.
The master certification is the capstone of the Microsoft Office Specialist certifications offered by Certiport, a company that provides career-oriented certification solutions to academic institutions and information technology professions.
