It is a free service for students or others who are seeking a professional location at which to take an exam. All participating test centers must be NCTA members in good standing and are expected to adhere to the CCTC guidelines. In addition the testing center must subscribe to and indicate compliance with the NCTA Professional Standards and Guidelines.
