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 sub-topics included in each major subject area on a certification test. The Test Content Outline can help you identify topics that apply to a specific subject area when considering how a CE offering may fit for your certification renewal.

The Test Content Outline (Test Blueprint) explains test content, so you know specific subject areas to study.
