Today's competitive job market calls for extraordinary employees. In many fields, passing an industry-recognized exam can help set you apart from the competition. In other professions, such as teaching, the successful completion of general-knowledge and/or content-specific tests is a criterion for the licensing and certification process required by many states.
Our test-preparation courses, like our individual courses and certificate programs, can give you a competitive edge in your field of interest. And, as with all of our continuing education offerings, these courses feature small class sizes, online and on-campus options — where available — and innovative online resources to help you strengthen your test-taking skills.
Select from these test-prep options:
Human resource management (PHR® and SPHR® exams)
Project management (PMP® exam)
Teaching (CBEST®, The Praxis Series™ and TExES™ exams)
Each test-preparation collection contains multiple courses that complement each other in preparing you for the test in that field. Choose a single course, or take the entire collection, to brush up on key topics and gain the confidence you need for exam day.
With the exception of teacher test prep, these courses are non-credit bearing. To learn more please select your area of study in the search tool on the left of this page, or sign up to speak with an enrollment Advisor.
