If you've always wanted to certify your desktop and general computer skills but didn't want to risk paying retake fees, the Center for Extended and Distance Education has a deal for you.

The Center is offering Certiport's Internet and Computing Core Certification (IC3), an exam widely recognized as the “gateway” computer certification, as well as the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification exams.

“Having the basics skills—reading, writing and arithmetic—is no longer enough for high school students and college graduates trying to enter the job market,” says Mary Alice Burkhart, coordinator of the Center's noncredit and customized programs. “Today, they also must be proficient in computer skills.

“This partnership with Certiport will help people in Clarksville become better prepared to take their place in the computer-dependent workplace.”

Now through Dec. 19, 2003, anyone taking the IC3 and MOS tests will be eligible for reduced prices. They also will qualify for the “No Fear Any Day” retake bonus, which allows students to retake any failed MOS or IC exam for only $10—a savings of up to 80 percent.
