Registration and Updates
It is requested that all those interested in a test session contact us at least one week prior to the desired test session.
If you will require special assistance on the exam, please email us to pre-register at least two weeks in advance of of test session so that we can ensure that accomodations will be available.  We will want some sort of method to contact you (phone, text, or email) in case of any sudden changes in the test session or location. It is also a good idea to just check with us to ensure the scheduled test session is still on... we haven't missed a scheduled date yet, but it could happen.
