Do you know anything about the MS Office Specialist Certification?Is
it one worth getting? I have been presented with a good offer for
the course and test.I want to ensure it is worth my time and money
before I do it. I am looking for enhancement to my experience as well
as good enhancement to my resume.Let me know if you feel that the MS
Office Specialist is a waste of time or if it is actually helpful.
This will help me in making my decision to take it or not.

Every secretary, administrative assistant, and first-line support tech I've met in the last decade has had that certification. The course work is helpful if you aren't already a power user, but it is unlikely to get you a good technical writing job, unless the hiring manager thinks techwriters are just overpaid secretaries.
