Offering 8th Graders the chance to boost their resumes while still in school, Dublin Middle School partnered with The Whetstone Group in August 2014. In less than nine weeks, eight DMS students have completed testing and earned Microsoft Industry Certifications recognized in workplaces worldwide.
“I was excited to pass the test because I knew it could get me jobs in the future,” said 8th Grader Ezekiel McMillan.
The curriculum is self-paced, so students decide for themselves how many certifications they will receive.
It’s important to note that only one Microsoft Industry Certification Test is available. There is no separate test for “Middle School,” “High School” or “Adult.”
