Certification is highly valued and provides formal recognition of knowledge in a particular area of practice. PTC's staff of professionals is experienced in the initial development and ongoing operation of credentialing and licensure programs, including consultation on psychometric and other issues related to the testing procedure.
National and International Test Administration
PTC can provide all administrative responsibilities involved in a testing process including: developing a Candidate Handbook of test information to be printed and distributed through the mail or downloaded from the Internet; processing candidate applications and fees; scheduling and arranging testing centers in cities throughout the United States and Canada as well as at special sites all over the world; providing secure test booklet printing; shipping and inventory of test materials; administering examinations; processing and reporting results; and preparing certificates.
PTC provides a range of services to individuals or organizations interested in self-assessment. PTC works with clients to first identify the self-assessment goals and then designs the most appropriate testing methodology to meet those goals. PTC offers the flexibility and technical capabilities essential to individualized self-assessment programs.
Measurement of complex human thoughts and attitudes is essential to understanding behavior.

PTC has psychometricians, statisticians, form designers, and programmers on staff to provide everything a client might need to conduct a professional, well-executed survey. From survey development and design, to data collection and analysis, PTC has the resources to create and deliver scannable or computer-based questionnaires quickly and efficiently.
