Testing Center Opens for Public Safety Job Seekers

OKLAHOMA CITY - Sept. 13, 2017 - PRLog -- National Testing Network, Inc. (NTN), the leader in outsourced employment testing for public safety departments, announces a new testing location in Oklahoma, in partnership with Eastern Oklahoma County Technology Center (EOCTC), located at 4601 N. Choctaw Road in Choctaw, Oklahoma.

This new testing location will offer online scheduling and payment of CPAT and 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 first NTN location established in Oklahoma. When asked about the new center, National Testing Network President, Carl Swander said, "We are thrilled to experience this expansion within the state of Oklahoma. Having a strategic partner in Oklahoma to administer both CPAT and entry-level tests will allow us to provide more departments and candidates with the continuous testing model that has helped hundreds of public safety agencies in 30 other states increase candidate diversity, significantly reduce costs, and elevate the level of satisfaction throughout the recruitment and selection process."

NTN is the sister company of Ergometrics & Applied Personnel Research, Inc., a human resource management firm with 36 years of expertise in testing public service professions.
