Welcome to the CareerScope User Certification Assessment
Over 8000 individuals have visited The Work Suite's CareerScope Training Site on the web.  We now offer CareerScope User Certification to CareerScope users and administrators who demonstrate their knowledge of the system.  All information required for passing the assessment is located at the CareerScope Training Site.
This is an open-web test  - you can take your time to find the answers at the CareerScope Training Site.   Anyone can take the test and related training, but you must pay a fee of $35 via PayPal or Purchase Order (directions at end of this page) before your test results are reviewed, and a certificate of successful completion is awarded.   A score of 80 percent is required for passing.  If you do not pass on the first try, you will be given feedback with hints on where to study, and you are welcome to take the assessment one more time.  When you do pass, your "suitable-for-framing" CareerScope User Certificate will be emailed to you.  Click the CareerScope Training Site link below and it will open in another window.  Everything you need to know is located at, or through, the CareerScope Training Site.  If you would like to begin the testing process after reviewing the CareerScope Training Site, return to this window and begin to fill in the form below.  Note: you should only have one window to the training site and one window to this assessment page and then click to toggle between the two - be careful not to open additional browse windows to this assessment page.
CareerScope User Certification means that you understand how to use CareerScope, what type of assessment CareerScope performs, and what the reports mean.  It does not mean that you are a certified career counselor or vocational evaluator - only that you understand this one assessment and it's reports.
