National Center for Competency Testing (NCCT)

The National Center for Competency Testing goes to great lengths to ensure the validity of its certification exams. They spend many months on the development of each exam. It is a long and tedious process, but one they believe is necessary to provide a certification examination that is credible for employers and the public. 

NCCT helps to bridge the transformation from student to employee with:

  • Directly aligned certification test preparation materials, especially the Interactive Review System which is accessible on a computer, tablet or smart phone and allows users to study anywhere at any time.
  • Offering On-Site certification examinations so students may test in a familiar environment.
  • Top-of-the-line and P.A.C.E. approved continuing education courses designed to help certificants stay current in their professions.
