Excel Basics Test-Out Exam (CPT047): Participants who feel they have a sufficient base knowledge of Excel 2018 can opt to take the Professional Development & Training Excel basics test-out exam. A passing grade of 85% or higher is required to test out of the three basic-level Excel 2018 classes (CPT055, CPT056, and CPT057). Participants receiving a grade of 84% or less must take the three basic-level Excel 2018 classes. Those who test out of the three basic-level Excel classes must still attend the remaining 7 Excel 2018 classes, the PowerPoint 2016 class, and the two Word 2016 classes.
