Walworth County Today: In today’s digital era, computer skills are a must in the job market,so Delavan-Darien High School will now offer students the opportunity to become Microsoft Office Certified, allowing them to prove they are career ready with some of most-used computer software applications on the sales market.
“So many positions in today’s job market demand that students have these essential application skills,” said Cindy Yager, the district’s director of careers and occupations.“Having this certification done while in high school puts our graduating students in a much better position vs. their peers from neighboring districts who were not afforded this excellent opportunity for career readiness. It’s another tool in our toolbox that will prepare our graduates with desirable 21st Century skills in a highly competitive job market.”
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction is partnering with Microsoft and offering grant funding so DDHS students in business education courses can take the Microsoft
Certification tests free of charge. Students can take the test after they have completed appropriate coursework and training.
