NCTA Webinar: Third Party Certification Test Delivery
3:00pm-4:00pm Eastern Time
Presented by: Jamie R. Mulkey, Ed.D., CESP, and Steven Wright

The ICT Sector Team of the Workforce and Economic Development Division, California Community College (CCC) System wanted to understand best practices and expand the effectiveness of campus testing centers and certification exam voucher programs to more broadly offer industry-recognized Information Technology (IT) certification program exams such as Microsoft, Adobe, Cisco, AWS, and CompTIA. The CCC conducted both quantitative and qualitative studies to determine how colleges were managing this activity. The results of this study will be discussed and have wider implications across all community colleges in how they address the needs of students who need to show verifiable credentials to obtain employment and promotional job opportunities. 

Dr. Jamie Mulkey and Stephen Wright will be presenting the results of the studies. Dr. Mulkey is a testing industry veteran with over 20 years of experience. Stephen Wright is the Director and Sector Navigator of Information Communications Technology (ICT) and Digital Media for the California Community College system.
