Byte Back IT Academy to Open Testing Center This Spring
By Monique Riviere, Director of Byte Back IT Academy
After years of referring our IT certification students to testing centers around the Washington, D.C. metro area, Byte Back IT Academy will finally be able to offer this service in-house! During testing, this will provide a comfortable, familiar atmosphere for our students, many of whom may already experience anxiety about exams.
Located downstairs in our IT Academy on Benning Road, NE, our soon-to-be authorized Pearson Vue testing center* will be able to provide certifying tests on CompTIA and Microsoft exams. The space will feature a reception area where students will sign in, have their photo taken, secure their belongings, test, and then receive their exam results and print-out immediately after the exam.
The center is furnished with desks, chairs, and lockers from the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) surplus. Thanks to generous individual and corporate donors, the testing center is equipped with desktop computers and monitors.
It is our hope that the superior instruction at Byte Back IT Academy combined with this convenient testing center will result in even greater success for our certification students on their paths to employment.
