Prometric Automates Additional Applications for Testing Programs

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwire - Aug 4, 2011) - Prometric, trusted provider of market-leading test development and delivery solutions, today announced that it has launched new automated application submission processes for certain of its testing programs.

Candidates of the following test programs will now be able to visit the Prometric website to complete and submit online applications for their test programs:

  • Arkansas Nursing Assistant Competency Exams
  • Connecticut Nurse Aide Competency Exams
  • Delaware Nurse Aide Competency Exams
  • City of Cleveland Exams
  • Connecticut Cosmetology/Barber Exam
  • Florida Construction Catalog Exams
  • National Construction Catalog Exams
  • New Jersey Cosmetology Exams

Using the new online application process, students of these programs can substantially reduce turn-around times for the processing of their exam applications while having a more direct, "self service" experience. Candidates who provide Prometric with an e-mail address on their online application will experience even faster service, as they can not only submit applications online, but will receive e-mail confirmations with exam details instead of waiting for a letter in the mail.

"Minimizing the back-and-forth between candidates and Prometric substantially cuts down on the time it takes to process applications," said Charles Kernan, chief operations officer at Prometric. "Offering an option that allows candidates to have a hands-on role in speeding up their own process is very customer-focused, and we hope that we are helping to make their exam process easier by rolling out these improvements. Once again, we would like to encourage the submission of applications online to significantly reduce candidate waiting times for application processing."
