Preparing for Certification

ONCC does not offer study materials for the certification tests, but we do provide everything possible to help you walk into the testing center prepared to succeed.

Use the ONCC Test Content Outline (Test Blueprint) to identify subject areas and sub-topics on a certification test. Use the Test Content Outline to help you identify topics that apply to a specific subject area when considering how a CE offering may be used for certification renewal.
