Dedicated to improving the experience of testing candidates while maintaining the integrity of examinations, University Testing and Scanning Services invites you to attend a free one-day conference focused on providing useful and timely information. Testing professionals have a need to focus on traditional and cutting-edge security techniques that ensure academic integrity, while also presenting a culturally sensitive environment for testing candidates. Equally important in an ever changing, customer service oriented world, is to equip testing personnel with stress management tools that can offer them ways to sustainably maintain their best efforts in the office and with candidates.
