Preview tests 

Assess your readiness to seek certification.

Preview tests allow those contemplating certification to familiarize themselves with test format and questions that may appear on a certification exam.  They are designed for those who would like to see the look and feel of NCC certification and provide 30 questions that cover the content areas identified on the NCC test outline. This will provide potential test applicants familiarity with the testing format and nature of questions asked on the certification examination. At $35.00 this is an excellent way to increase knowledge about the NCC certification testing process and allay some anxiety often associated with testing. 

How it works

After choosing the certification preview test, complete the purchase process.  Once the purchase is complete access to the preview test is provided. You have one attempt and one hour to answer the thirty questions so don't start the preview until you have the time to complete it. You will receive right and wrong answers on the preview test and can review it at any time in your account "Modules and Tests".  The preview test is not intended to prepare you for the exam content but instead to help you become familiar with the testing format and the nature of the questions. All preview tests have expiration dates.  Once they expire they are no longer available to take and the results are no longer in the account to review.  There are no refunds for preview tests.
