Do you want to save money and time administering IPMA-HR’s entry-level and promotional tests?
As the demand for online testing increases, we want to stay ahead of the curve and offer you the most cost and time efficient options available. IPMA-HR is considering the development of consortium testing and would like your feedback on the process.
Consortium testing is, in essence, a centralized test center located within a region that can administer IPMA-HR tests to large groups. The results are then offered to several departments for review. The advantage of a consortium is twofold: candidates only need to take one test, and departments find cost savings while still maintaining high standards in finding the right people for open positions.

- Is done at a local community college or other IPMA-HR approved test site.
- Is administered by an approved IPMA-HR representative.
- Handles test administration for multiple departments at the same time, saving money and time for candidates and administrators.
