Drake Hardware & Software Offers Pearson Vue and Prometric Certification Testing
Professional certification certainly is a tempting goal - it may open up opportunities in your current job, give your resume a boost from the pile on a potential employer's desk, or allow you to install certain brands of hardware and software. Certification is an official acknowledgement of your proficiency with a certain set of skills, occupation, software or software suite, and more. Willingness to take the time and make the effort to achieve certification shows current and potential employers and customers your dedication as well as occupational skills.
Drake Hardware & Software employees were all tasked to get a certification by May 2010. Our certifications range from Peachtree software, QuickBooks, Adobe applications, and Microsoft certifications.
We are now comprised of two testing rooms offering Pearson VUE and Prometric certification tests.
Pearson VUE is a computer-based testing business unit that works with companies seeking to regulate and standardize their certification exams. Pearson Vue authorized testing centers offer exams for many popular computer technology companies, including Adobe, Avaya, Cisco Systems, CompTIA, Novell, Veritas and more.
Prometric is a collaborative partner who has been at the forefront of the industry for decades. Successfully assisting any who seek to assess minimum competencies and validate professional credentials through rigorous test development and delivery processes, in meeting their certification objectives through reliable, innovative technology and creative intelligence. Right now Drake can only administer Prometric tests in the information technology field. These tests include Microsoft, Apple, Sun, HP, Citrix, and IBM certifications.
The certification and assessment markets are designed to validate knowledge levels and skill sets to prove job capabilities and to protect companies from those who would be fraudulent. The parameters of the test vary from subject to subject - but in the case of many, such as computer hardware and software certification, tests are administered electronically at the Drake Hardware & Software testing center.
Our testing center is open Wednesday 8am-5pm, Thursday 8am-5pm, and Friday 8am-4pm. Testing centers are closed from 12pm-1pm for lunch. Attaining certification then is a simple matter of registering with either Prometric or Pearson VUE and take your test in one of Drake's testing rooms.
