Another First for Coastal Pines Technical College!

With millions of educational, certification, and licensure tests administered in the U.S. 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 the other post-secondary test centers and achieved national status as a leader in excellent testing practices.

Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC) - Golden Isles Testing and Assessment Center was awarded Test Certification by the National College Testing Association (NCTA). Criteria for certification are rigorous and are based on the NCTA Professional Standards and Guidelines, which were developed to guide post-secondary test centers in the delivery of quality testing programs.  This certification confirms the commitment to high test administration standards and to providing excellent customer service to a wide variety of students and community members in the performance of their duties.

Congratulations to April Hennecke, Coordinator of Testing and Assessment, and the entire staff of CPTC  for a job well done and becoming the first technical college in Georgia to achieve NCTA Test Center certification.

The Golden Isles Campus of CPTC is located in Brunswick, Georgia.  It is one of seven CPTC campuses.  The school was established on July 1, 2014, and is a unit of the Technical College System of Georgia.  The College offers associate degrees, diplomas, and certificate programs in allied health, business and computer, personal services, and technical and industrial technology.

Coastal Pines Technical College - Golden Isles Testing and Assessment Center is one of a growing number of test centers in the U.S. and Canada to have completed this intensive certification process. This certification will be in place for five years and can be renewed by demonstrating continued compliance to national standards.  

The National College Testing Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of professionalism and high quality service in the administration of testing programs, offers certification to college and university test centers that demonstrate exemplary practices. NCTA membership numbers more than 2,200 testing professionals from 650 colleges and universities as well as 50 test companies and organizations offering test-related products and services.
