Prometric Test Centers (PTC) are professional testing facilities dedicated to providing industry-leading testing services to all candidates. From the workstations to the furniture, every testing lab is identical to every other in all aspects other than size. The number of workstations ranges from six to nineteen in any given lab.
Prometric provides a level of standardization because we own all of the equipment, hardware, furniture, etc., in use throughout the testing network. Corporate ownership of computer equipment also ensures that the routine maintenance schedule is followed and equipment upgrades occur when needed.
All of the testing centers in Prometric's PTC network meet the same high standards:

Example: If a name is listed as Jane Jones on the test application or registration records, and the legal name is Jane Jones Smith, identification must also list the name as Jane Jones (or Jane Jones Smith). If the presented identification reflects only the name Jane Smith, she would not be allowed to sit for the examination.

*Additional Security Procedures for Prometric Test Center.
The Prometric Test Center, will be using hand-held metal detector wands. All candidates will be scanned prior to each entry into the test room, including returns from breaks. Candidates will be required to turn their pockets out, and the scan will be done immediately afterward. The scan will be done in full view of the TCA DVR camera so it will be recorded, and any candidate complaints or concerns can be properly investigated. All candidates will be required to submit to the scans. Any candidates refusing to be scanned will not be permitted to test. CPRs will be filed for any irregularities or escalations regarding the use of the wands.
The University of North Georgia’s Testing Center is available to provide assistance to students with a physical and/or learning disability based on documentation on file in the Student Disability Services (SDS) Office and with the permission of the instructor.
These testing accommodations generally fall into one or more of the following categories: extended time in a setting less distracting than the actual classroom, a computer for word processing, enlarged print, and in some cases a reader/transcriber.
In order to make arrangements for special testing opportunities, please note the following:
NOTE: Please be aware that students who are late to scheduled exams are using their allotted exam time. If students are more than 15 minutes late, appointments are forfeited and make-up exams may need to be scheduled. Make-up exams, however, are at instructors’ discretion, not the Testing Office’s. This policy and procedure is applicable to the make-up test as well. As exam accommodations pertain to test time only, students are not allowed to use scheduled test time for studying before beginning examinations.
