BSD Certification Group Partners with Schroeder Measurement Technologies to Expand Certification Delivery
April 18, 2011 - The BSD Certification Group (BSDCG) announced today that it has partnered with Schroeder Measurement Technologies (SMT) to increase the geographic availability of BSD certification exams. Through its sister company, Iso-Quality Testing (IQT), SMT maintains a testing center network of carefully selected partners, including college/university testing centers and computer-related businesses to provide testing services in a secure, proctored environment. Testing centers are available in over 300 cities in 19 countries.
"Prior to this partnership, we were only able to offer paper-based exams at hosted events in a limited number of cities," indicated Dru Lavigne, Chair of the BSD Certification Group. "We are pleased to be working with SMT which provides testing services in a secure manner at a reasonable cost. This allows us to increase exam availability while still keeping the cost of the exam affordable."
Sean Colton, Director of IQT, said, "We are excited about working with an organization of BSDCG's caliber and assisting them with transitioning their exams to IQT's secure, candidate-friendly CBT environment."
Details on the testing center locations are available in the FAQ section of the BSD Certification website. Exam candidates can continue to use their existing BSDCG ID and use the BSD certification registration website to pay for their examination. Once paid, examinees have a year to schedule and take their examination at their testing center location of choice. In addition to the testing centers, the BSDCG will continue to offer paper-based exams at hosted events.
