The business exam tests the very basics of what an operating system is. Specifically, Widows terminology (e.g. Start button, taskbar, desktop, File Explorer), Windows File Explorer, the Recycle Bin on a Windows desktop, what a valid email address looks like, how to search for a file on a Windows computer, the basic definition of malware and cookies, giving permissions to other Windows users when you share files and folders, and data storage measurements (e.g. kilobytes, megabytes, etc.).

IT/Cybersecurity

The IT/Cyber exam measures the applicant’s familiarity in navigating a desktop – openings programs, accessing files and folders, recognizing common internet browsers, and taking screenshots. It also evaluates an applicant’s familiarity with emails and the recognition of icons associated with email functions, such as email attachments.

Architectural and Engineering Design

Topics tested are exploring the Windows desktop, taskbar, and start menu; opening/closing applications; using File Explorer; methods of copying/pasting; screenshots/snipping tool; URL definition; and utilizing the search bar.
