Assessment Centre

Covid-19 Updates

As of May, the Assessment Centre resumed limited testing services. To adhere to social distancing and other health regulations related to the pandemic, testing activities follow strict protocols.

  • Hours of operation are limited, with testing scheduled for mornings only.
  • A maximum of 5 candidates are tested at a time, with appointments offset.
  • Candidates must supply and wear a non-medical mask during the testing session.
  • Candidates must use the hand sanitizing station before entering the Centre
  • Candidates are tested if they appear ill

At this time, only candidates needing to complete the entry assessment tests (ACCUPLACER and typing test) can be tested.  Besides being able to complete the ACCUPLACER test in person, candidates can also request to take it remotely through a virtual proctoring service.
