The Test Centre offers testing services to business, colleges, universities and professional associations in a secured, monitored environment. We have trained invigilators and are a member of the National College Testing Association.

The College can accommodate online, computer based or paper based testing for individuals or groups. We are open Monday to Friday during the day, Thursday evenings and the third Saturday of each month.
