Since October is national testing month, tests are half off!
These will be held in a public building in Rancho Cordova. Face masks are required for admission to the building. Temperatures will be taken, so please do NOT attend if you have a fever. Hand sanitizer will be provided and test-takers will be seated individually at a desk. There are bathrooms in the building but no drinking fountains available. Please bring your own water in a non-spill container. Please arrive 15 minutes before the exam time to get registered and setup for the test. Do not bring or leave valuable items sitting visible in your car. I have no control over the room temperature, so please bring a light sweater or jacket, just in case it is cold. Please park in front of the building and do NOT leave valuables visible in your car.
