  • Hi, MDESIGN.

    No - there is no problem with using the Excel or Office names in the course name or certificate title, so long as you do not advertise or state that the course is official Microsoft curriculum or that you are a Microsoft Academy.

    At Intertech (where I work), we develop our own courseware and pass out Intertech certificates for our courses. These congratulatory certificates that we pass out are Intertech certificates but they also contain the names of Microsoft products such as Visual Studio 2013, SQL Server 2012, SSIS 2012, SSRS 2012, etc. We are very careful in stating that it is Intertech training they have completed and not Microsoft Learning or Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC). That is, unless I teach a MOC course, because I am also a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT).

    Good luck!


    Best wishes, Davin Mickelson

  • The current forum is for developers. That's why I'd recommend asking non-programming questions in the Microsoft Community or Excel IT Pro Discussions forums. Or just try to contact Microsoft directly.
