What is the process?
Check System Requirements -The CPT online learning units use a lot of bandwidth because of media-rich content with videos, animations, and simulations. MSSC offers two types of hybrid solutions for companies with insufficient bandwidth to run CPT courses. The CLT courses are also provided online but through the use of a customized company portal. Please read the System Requirements for more details and pricing. Prior to training delivery, MSSC will work with the site administrator or appropriate personnel to check each computer for these System Requirements and access speed.
Assessment and Certification - MSSC offers its national assessments only at Authorized Assessment Centers around the U.S. In Indiana, Ivy Tech Community College offers testing statewide through its Workforce Certification Centers. Companies that wish to offer the assessments at their own sites can do so by completing MSSC Assessment Center Training. Testing and certification is an additional step separate from training however it is not required to participate in training in order to take an MSSC Assessment.
