Due to the recent COVID-19 social distancing measures, the scheduled May testing has been postponed. We must have a testing facility to work in and proctors to administer the test. We will keep a close eye on the situation and when we feel it is safe to reintroduce testing, we will do so. Please check this site for updated information on future test dates. Thank you for your patience during this challenging time.
