Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the FSCJ Assessment and Certification Centers have made a series of changes that may impact the way you take your exam. Please be sure to read the exam descriptions carefully when scheduling your testing appointment.

The Assessment Centers are open for in-person testing, and we are committed to providing the safest testing experience for our candidates. We are adhering to CDC recommendations for social distancing; therefore, ANY candidate more than 15 minutes late may be asked to reschedule or sign a time waiver, forfeiting the remaining time as not to exceed capacity for future appointments. Remote testing options for select exams are available Sunday through Monday.

Though not required, students are welcome to bring and use a number of disinfecting/health items: hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, gloves, or any other personal items related to maintaining a clean and sanitized testing experience. Each assessment center will have hand sanitizer available but no other personal items will be provided.

Testing candidates that exhibit ANY illness should not come to campus. If a candidate arrives ill, he or she will be asked to leave immediately.
