Located inside of the South Campus Library (Photo, right), the North ArkansasSouth Campus Library College Testing Center offers high-stakes testing for more than 2,000 individual certification, occupational assessment and professional licensure exams. These certification tests cover a wide variety of subjects, ranging from information technology to nuclear medicine to pilot licenses. By taking certain professional certification exams, North Arkansas College students and other test candidates can gain credit for their real-life work and study experience.

The Testing Center is staffed with knowledgeable, licensed testing administrators using the latest software/hardware and state-of-the-art monitoring equipment. Thanks to these same selfless, hard-working staff members, the Center is able to provide a secure, comfortable and trouble-free testing environment for examination candidates.

With vendors such as Pearson Vue, CompTIA, CISCO, Microsoft, TSA/PAN, FCC and EPA among many more, the opportunity for certification is almost limitless. Additionally, those who already have obtained certification may also be eligible to receive college credit.
Certification CenterFounded on July 7th, 2003, The Testing Center continues to grow and draw candidates from an ever-expanding geographical area. In addition, we work with regional and national businesses to improve productivity and proficiency by certifying their staff in many applications. There is a map and an updated schedule available online at northark.edu, but feel free to call us at (870) 391-3533 if further driving directions are required or if there is any other assistance that we can provide.
