IT Testing Center Only One of its Kind in Forsyth County

(WINSTON-SALEM, July 5, 2012) – Forsyth Tech’s new Davis iTEC Testing Center will hold an Open House on July 11, 2012, to introduce students, Triad businesses, and Information Technology (IT) managers and employees to the new facility. Located in the Technology Building on Forsyth Tech’s Main Campus, the center will administer examinations to those wishing to be certified in a range of IT skills.

Forsyth Tech students will be able to test for certifications from Microsoft, Cisco, Comptia and A+, among others. The center will be open initially to Forsyth Tech IT students. In January 2013, it will open to the general public.

Before the opening of the Davis iTEC Testing Center, people wishing to be tested for these certifications had to travel to Greensboro. The new facility will allow for testing of up to 80 students a week. Forsyth Tech students will be provided with discount vouchers to help with the fees for the testing.

The center will hold the Open House from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on July 11 and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
