First Public Testing Center in Vermont

LYNDON CTR., Vt. – Vermont now has a certified testing center for Intuit and Adobe products. Lyndon State College has opened a new Certiport Authorized Testing Center. Previously, those wanting to take certification exams in Vermont had to travel to Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, or New York. Certiport is the leading provider of value-added, computerized test delivery services that include an expanding network of testing centers worldwide.

Through the Certiport partnership, Lyndon can help prepare Vermonters for future success in technology-driven learning and workforce environments. LSC students will also benefit by earning certification credentials and their degree simultaneously, making them more competitive when they enter the job market. This in-state solution for globally recognized, performance-based certification testing in areas that employers’ value will help students and adult learners advance their careers.

“This is a key element of Lyndon’s total education strategy. We prepare students during the critical years of induction into their profession and support professionals throughout their career to address the demands of evolving workplaces and fields,” said Nolan Atkins, LSC interim academic dean.

The testing center pairs with two of Lyndon’s newest professional offerings. Lyndon’s American Hotel and Lodging Education Institute certification now has an on-campus location for formal testing. And, the Certiport Testing Center will complement Lyndon’s Center for Professional Studies, launching in September. The center is designed to teach people new skills to advance their careers via online, classroom-based, and hybrid programs. By delivering certification courses, working professionals and students will be able to fill the critical skill gaps that occur in high growth industries.

The testing center is open and offering Quickbooks and Adobe product education and testing. Please call 802.626.4867 or email CREdirector@lsc.vsc.edu to register.
