AAPSE Professional Development Webinar Series: Session 3

Exploring the Benefits of Computer-Based & On-line Testing

September 29, 2020 at 2pm ET

Register on the Events page (click on "show details" for link).

As in-person certification testing  for commercial and private pesticide applicators across the country is being postponed or cancelled in response to the novel coronavirus (or SARS-CoV-2), interest in  remote testing has increased. With advances in software and security, test-takers can not only take their exams at local testing sites, but some platforms allow them to take their exams from the comfort of their home

We will hear from representatives from EverBlue , Metro Institute, and others on all that remote testing offers and why you may want to embrace (more) computer-based/online testing.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact John Feagans (919) 857-4133 or Faye Golden (256) 560-1215.
