Professional Licensure and Certification Testing

Our Nationally Certified Testing Center offers testing services for community members and employers seeking to become Professionally licensed or certified in any number of certifications. Please click on the links below to see all of the certification offerings (there are hundred's) offered by these companies.

Procedures for Certification testing:

  • Contact the certification company on their respective websites to schedule to take the certification and pay for the certification test.
  • In most cases the certification company will contact the PPCC Testing Center to schedule your appointment.
  • In many cases the proctoring fee is paid thru the certification company to our testing center. However, if you are required to pay for the proctoring fee, you must obtain an invoice from the testing center, then you can pay this to the PPCC cashier, and then bring your receipt to the Testing Center on the day of testing.
  • Generally, there is a proctoring fee of $25.00 per test for up to two hours. If the test is longer than two hours, then it is $10 per each additional hour.
  • Test takers must have a valid government -issued photo ID (Drivers license, military ID, State ID).
  • The testing center will adhere to all of the testing requirements from the Certification Company.
