Due to the continued difficulties resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and international travel restrictions, Certiport has decided to cancel the August 2021 in-person Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) World Championship event and go completely virtual in 2021. This decision was made after considering all alternatives and gathering input from our Certiport partners throughout the world.

National Championships around the globe have been canceled, postponed, or moved to a virtual format. We hope that you understand the need to move the World Championship to a virtual event in 2021 based on the current circumstances.

The 2021 MOS Virtual World Championship is planned to be to be held in the fall of 2021 and will follow the same format as the previous World Championships. National MOS winners will compete alongside other national winners and take a MOS competition exam remotely.

Certiport will share more details in the coming months regarding the competition format and exact dates. If you have any additional questions, please contact us at moschampionship@pearson.com. We hope that you are staying healthy and safe during this time.
