Round Rock ISD Intermediate and Senior Students Earn Business Information Management Certifications and College Credit

During the fall semester of 2021, 449 Round Rock ISD students obtained their certification in Microsoft Word and Powerpoint software systems. Business Information Management (BIM) courses are offered in nine middle and five high schools. BIM is part of the Round Rock ISD vocational and technical training program. Vocational and technical education programs offer college students the opportunity to earn college credits.

In partnership with Austin Community College (ACC), Round Rock ISD students can earn what is known as an articulated credit or “escrow credit”. Available certifications include Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. When students successfully complete the BIM course and complete the requirements for the certifications, they are awarded college credit.

Certifications demonstrate to potential employers that students know how to use the software they want, help them stand out in interviews, gain confidence in a field, and prepare them for the level of rigor required for industry certification exams. they might face in the future.

Microsoft Excel certifications and college credits are available for students in the spring semester 2022.

Round Rock ISD provides students with access to over 60 industry certifications in 16 federally defined career groups.
