National Testing Network Partners with The California Police Chiefs Association

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Feb. 13, 2018 - PRLog -- National Testing Network, Inc. (NTN), the leader in outsourced employment testing for public safety departments, announces a strategic partnership with the California Police Chiefs Association.

This agreement will offer reduced test administration costs for the Association's member departments and provide increased exposure to more candidates through continuous local and national recruitment and testing. Annually, NTN tests more than 75,000 public safety candidates, and hosts more than 20,000 test sessions through 115 test centers.  NTN currently has 11 testing centers in California, providing candidates flexibility to choose a convenient time and location.

Candidates register to take the exams through NTN's state-of-the-art online registration system.  During registration, candidates can use the interactive map to find the most conveniently located test center in their community.  The NTN system notifies candidates of public safety careers in their region and provides email updates on new opportunities as they become available. NTN delivers examinations with video simulations that depict scenarios candidates would encounter while working in the position they are applying for.

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 make timely and effective hiring decisions.

"Recruiting qualified candidates for police officer positions in California is extremely challenging right now and many agencies are struggling to find candidates to fill their existing vacancies," stated California Police Chiefs Association President Chief Ed Medrano. "Partnering with NTN will help broaden our members access to qualified candidates."

Carl Swander, Ph.D., President and CEO of National Testing Network, added, "This is a win for the entire law enforcement community in California. Not only will departments have the opportunity to leverage cost savings and increase candidate diversity and quality through this partnership, we're positioned to enhance the testing process for candidates and eliminate traditional barriers by offering testing times and dates in a continuous format for CPCA members."


National Testing Network, Inc. (NTN), is a recruitment and test administration company, providing continuous professional testing services for public safety departments, including law enforcement, fire, corrections departments, and emergency communications departments.  Future expansion efforts are underway to increase NTN's test center footprint to over 2,000 centers across the U.S. and Canada in 2018.  For more information, please visit our website at
