With millions of educational, certification, and licensure tests administered in the U.S. every year, the need for secure testing environments and trained testing staff has never been greater. One local test center has set the bar high for the other post-secondary test centers and achieved national status as a leader in excellent testing practices.
Recently, the Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC) Testing and Assessment Center on the Waycross Campus was awarded Test Center Certification by the National College Testing Association (NCTA). Criteria for certification are rigorous and are based on the NCTA Professional Standards and Guidelines, which were developed to guide post-secondary test centers in the delivery of quality testing programs. This certification will be in place for five years and can be renewed by demonstrating continued compliance to national standards.
The Waycross Testing Center is the second Coastal Pines Testing Center to have completed this intensive certification process. The Testing Center on the Golden Isles campus was awarded certification in August of 2018.
Congratulations are extended to Anna McCrea and the entire staff at the Coastal Pines Technical College – Waycross Testing Center for maintaining high test administration standards and for providing excellent service to a wide variety of students and community members in the performance of their duties.
The National College Testing Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of professionalism and high quality service in the administration of testing programs, offers certification to college and university test centers that demonstrate exemplary practices. NCTA membership numbers more than 2,200 testing professionals from 650 colleges and universities as well as 50 test companies and organizations offering test-related products and services.
