Test Information

The information you need to know about taking an ONCC test is in the Test Candidate Handbook. There is a Test Candidate Handbook for each certification test. The Handbook includes information about test content and certification policies. When you apply for a test, you must affirm you have read, understand, and accept the conditions described in the Handbook about test administration, reporting of scores, and certification policies.

ONCC strongly recommends that you review the Test Candidate Handbook.
