National Testing Network Signs an Affiliation Agreement With The Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - Oct. 5, 2017 - EntSun -- National Testing Network, Inc. (NTN), the leader in outsourced employment testing for public safety departments, announces an affiliation agreement with The Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police.

This agreement will offer reduced test administration costs for the Association's member departments, and provide increased exposure to more candidates through continuous nationwide recruitment and testing.  Annually, NTN tests more than 50,000 candidates, and hosts more than 20,000 test sessions through over 100 test centers.  NTN currently has five (5) testing centers in Illinois, providing candidates flexibility to choose a convenient time and location.

Candidates register to take the exams through NTN's state-of-the-art online registration system.  During registration, candidates can use the interactive map to find the most conveniently located test center in their community.  The NTN system notifies candidates of careers in their region, and provides email updates on new opportunities as they become available. NTN delivers examinations with video simulations that depict scenarios candidates would encounter while working in the position they are applying for.

With online testing, candidates see their score results immediately after completing the test, and public safety departments receive instantaneous score results once exams are completed. NTN provides public safety agencies with the most current applicant pool information and essential test score data so departments can quickly make good hiring decisions.
"We are extremely excited about this affiliation and honored that the ILACP supports the vision of NTN's innovative program," said Carl Swander, Ph.D., President and CEO of National Testing Network, "This affiliation between our organizations is a win for the entire law enforcement community in Illinois.  Not only will departments have the opportunity to leverage cost savings and increase candidate diversity and quality through this relationship, we're positioned to enhance the testing process for candidates and eliminate the barriers they used to face under old testing models."

When asked about the new affiliation arrangement, the Executive Director at The Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police, Ed Wojcicki, stated, "Police Chiefs in Illinois at our recent planning meetings have identified recruiting as a challenge in many parts of the state, and our affiliation with NTN will give police departments another way to recruit high-quality candidates."
