Typing certificates may be accepted if they reflect a five (5) minute timed test proctored by a qualified organization within the last 24 months and include applicant name, date of test, name of organization administering the test, and name (and phone number if possible) of proctor. No un-proctored typing certificates will be accepted. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that all required criteria for both typing tests and typing certificates are met regardless of where the typing test is taken.
