The Instructor Resource Center (IRC) provides improved test security by offering a password protected website. It can only be accessed by an access code provided to  instructors.

An access code is included with the purchase of an Annotated Instructor Guide or Instructor package, and gives instructors access to all levels of a craft. Access code cards can also be obtained for previously purchased Annotated Instructor Guides. Only institutions with a Pearson account will be able to order the IRC access code card.
