National Testing Center Launches Service in San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO - June 23, 2016 - PRLog -- National Testing Network, Inc. (NTN), the leader in outsourced employment testing for public safety departments, announces a new testing location in Texas, in partnership with Business Communications Solutions, located at 2379 NE Loop 410, Suite 1B in San Antonio.

This new testing location will offer online computer based testing for entry-level firefighters, law enforcement officers, corrections officers, and emergency communications applicants applying for city, county, and state public safety agencies.

NTN's state-of-the-art online testing delivers examinations with video simulations that depict scenarios candidates would actually encounter while working in the position they are applying for. After viewing the scenarios, applicants are asked how they would respond in a particular situation. This video simulation testing has been proven to be more effective than traditional paper-and-pencil testing in helping public safety departments find applicants who are the best fit for the job.

With online testing, candidates see their score results immediately after completing the test, and public safety departments receive instantaneous score results once exams are completed. NTN provides public safety agencies with the most current applicant pool information and essential test score data so departments can quickly make good hiring decisions.

This testing site is the third NTN location established in Texas. "We are thrilled to experience this rapid expansion within the state of Texas. This will allow us to provide more departments and candidates with the continuous testing model that has helped hundreds of public safety agencies in 27 other states increase candidate diversity, significantly reduce costs, and elevate the level of satisfaction throughout the recruitment and selection process," said National Testing Network President, Carl Swander, Ph.D.

When asked about the new partnership, the information technology director at Business Communications Solutions, Joe Vu, stated, "Business Communications Solutions (CS) is excited to work with NTN to increase our brand awareness, enlarge our customer base, and enhance our service offerings for public safety departments and candidates in our region."

NTN is the sister company of Ergometrics & Applied Personnel Research, Inc., a human resource management firm with 35 years of expertise in testing public service professions.
