Harford Community College Test Center Earns National Recognition


The Harford Community College Test Center 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 that 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 with national standards.

A statement from the NCTA said, “With millions of educational, certification, and licensure tests administered around the world 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 other post-secondary test centers and achieved national status as a leader in excellent testing practices. Congratulations are extended to Ruby Burchett and the entire staff at the Harford Community College Test 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.”
