TESTOUT IT PATHWAYS
 

Flexible Pathways and Direction

IT offers numerous opportunities for growth, but it can be tough to decide which path to follow. Along these pathways, each certification builds upon the one before it, to help your students move ahead.

Just because we’ve mapped out these sample pathways, doesn’t mean you need to teach these certifications in this order. Jump in at whatever point makes the most sense for your classes and school.

TestOut Pro Certifications

See What They Can Do

To assess skills, you need more than multiple-choice exams. TestOut Pro Certification exams use the most advanced simulation technology to measure an individuals’ ability to perform real-world IT tasks. Using 100% performance-based simulations, you get a clear picture of what they can do, not just what they can memorize. Each product license comes with an exam voucher to take the associated TestOut Pro Certification.

The Skills Guarantee

We believe TestOut Pro Certified students have learned to work in extraordinary ways as they have prepared to pass a Pro Certification. We are so confident in these individuals, that we will back them up with a $1,000 Skills Guarantee.

If any employer finds, after hiring and putting them to work for at least 3 weeks, that they do not possess the IT skills that we have certified under the applicable Pro Certification, then we will pay that company up to $1,000.

Don't Take Our Word For It

Of course we love our courseware, but we thought you'd like to hear what others are saying about TestOut.

This software allows my students to learn and access technology that they would normally not be able to use. Many of my students now have the ability to support themselves upon leaving high school because they earned a PC Technician certification through TestOut.

Amy Stewart

IT Academy Teacher
Robertsdale High School

TestOut Security Pro and Network Pro has been a tremendous asset to our Cyber Security program. Thanks to TestOut, my students enter the classroom with the tools they need to succeed in the class, and at the end of the semester they are able to leave class with the tools they need to succeed in the industry.

I have been teaching Information Technology classes for the past 31 years at two different high school tech centers. This is the best "interactive software" to prepare students for "Real World" experiences.

TestOut has proven to be invaluable. Not only a great teaching tool but the skills learned are valuable real world skills. Students learn concepts as well as invaluable troubleshooting skills that will help them in college and on the job. My program would not be where it is without TestOut
