How to Purchase and Allocate Tests in the NCCER Shop
Organizations have two distinct options for using and paying for tests in the NCCER Testing System. The first option is to buy tests by volume in advance before testing – tests purchased through this option receive a volume-based discount beginning at 500 tests. The second option is to assign and use tests as needed, and then receive an invoice at the end of the month for completed (used) tests.
