Testing servicesCOVID-19 Update:

Update (June 10, 2021): The Test Centre on Red Deer Polytechnic's Main Campus has re-opened and limited in-person service-delivery has resumed. Due to COVID-19 capacity limitations and required health and safety protocols currently in place, in-person service includes only pre-scheduled accommodated exam invigilation at this time.

Some services provided by Testing Services continue to be temporarily adjusted or unavailable. Please visit the individual testing webpages linked below for more information on current service operation and delivery.

Testing Services is an internal exam-writing facility located in the NOVA Chemicals Learning Common (NCLC) on Red Deer Polytechnic's Main Campus. With access to unique exam-writing workspaces and technology, we offer an array of exam administration and invigilation services to current and prospective Red Deer Polytechnic students.
