The National College Testing Association (NCTA) has recognized Heartland Community College’s Testing Center for maintaing high standards and providing excellent service.

Heartland was awarded Test Center Certification, a national designation based on the NCTA Professional Standards and Guidelines developed to guide post-secondary test centers.

In awarding the designation, the NCTA recognized Heartland’s Assistant Director of Testing, Hannah Mathes, along with the College’s Testing Center staff.

The statement reads: “With millions of educational, certification, and licensure tests administered in the U.S. every year, the need for secure testing environments and trained testing staff has never been greater. Congratulations are extended to Hannah Mathes and the entire staff at the Heartland Community College Testing Center for maintaining high test administration standards and for providing excellent service to a wide variety of students and community members in the performance of their duties.” 

The certification will be in place for five years and can only be renewed by demonstrating continued compliance to national standards.
