Testing Center Opens for Public Safety Job Seeker

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Oct. 30, 2017 - PRLog -- National Testing Network, Inc. (NTN), the leader in outsourced employment testing for public safety departments, announces a new testing location in Michigan, in partnership the Michigan State University Testing Office, located at 556 E. Circle Drive, Room 237 in East Lansing.

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 Michigan. "We are excited to see continued growth within the State of Michigan.  This will allow us to provide more departments and candidates with the continuous testing model that has helped hundreds of public safety agencies in 31 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 Manager of Testing Services at Michigan State University  Christopher Wierenga, M.A., stated, "We couldn't be more excited about our newfound partnership with National Testing Network, and we look forward to having the opportunity to serve as a resource for aspiring public servants throughout the state of Michigan."

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