Students in Debbie Lasson’s Computer Technology classes earned 100 Microsoft Office Specialist industry certifications. With three students earning four certifications each in Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Access. One of those students, a junior, is planning to attend UVU when she graduates from PHS.
At today’s tuition prices, she will save over $1,600 for six credits because her industry certifications will give her credit for two required UVU classes. (UVU has two classes of Computer Technology required for generals. The UVU Business Dept professor has already signed off on giving credit for industry certifications, i.e. 1st UVU CT class: Word & PowerPoint – 2nd UVU CT class: Excel and Access.)
