St. Johns River State College has expanded its testing services to offer students and the general public access to more than 100 key industry certification exams – from IT certifications such as Cisco, CompTIA, Oracle, Microsoft, Apple IT and VMware, to food safety and business management licensure exams.

SJR State will host exams for computer-based testing leader Pearson VUE on its Palatka campus each week. Candidates are required to register online through Pearson VUE (www.pearsonvue.com) to schedule each exam prior to arriving on campus.

“We’re very excited to become a testing site for Pearson VUE,” said Todd Dixon, SJR State’s director of testing and student support services. “The testing system gives us unparalleled control and flexibility over our ability to manage our testing our way, and test results are quickly transmitted back, ensuring the candidate’s certification status is promptly updated.”

According to Dixon, industry certifications not only provide professionals with the credentials necessary for career advancement, they also can add credibility to an applicant’s resume, giving them a competitive edge in today’s workforce.

Ray Murray, vice president of business development of Pearson VUE said, “We are proud to welcome St. Johns River State College to the rapidly growing global network of Pearson VUE Authorized Test Centers. Together, we are providing even more candidates with the opportunity to obtain meaningful certifications and advance their careers.”

According to the corporation’s website, Pearson VUE is the global leader in electronic testing for regulatory and certification boards, providing a full suite of services from test development to test delivery and data management.
