ACTC Becomes IT Testing Center

Information Technology (IT) students and professionals in the Ashland area can now take many industry certification tests close to home.

ACTC has become an official Pearson Vue IT Testing Center and can administer exams in Cisco Systems, CompTIA, Certiport, Adobe, CIW and other systems and programs.

We think Pearson Vue is a wonderful addition to our college testing services, said David Childress, Associate Professor and IT Program Coordinator. Local testing will help our students gain certifications, recognized by the IT industry, that they can put on their resumes when job hunting.

Local testing can also benefit IT professionals who can gain additional certifications for skills learned on the job. Those seeking an exam can go to http://www9.pearsonvue.com/ and search under Test Centers to locate an IT exam they want to take.

Other tests offered through ACTCs Workforce Solutions Assessment Center include a wide variety of pre-employment assessments, Microsoft Office Specialist exams, Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Tests, International Code Council Trade Certification Exams and Castle Worldwide certification exams and licensure testing in health care, engineering, business, transportation and other professional fields.

In addition, the Assessment Center is a great resource for business and industry's customized testing needs. A complete list of certification testing is at ashland.kctcs.edu/Workforce_Solutions.
