To place an order, contact Tim Withee (firstname.lastname@example.org, 404-994-6535. Payment MUST be received before test site administrators are registered and test tickets are generated.
Assign the test site administrator by having that person submit the Test Site Administrator Registration and Agreement form.
Once the test site administrator has been acknowledged by CTECS, he/she can begin registering students. After a student registration form is uploaded to CTECS, CTECS staff will enroll the students in E-SESS, the online testing system.
The test site administrator will receive an email with E-SESS login instructions when the students have been enrolled. Then the test site administrator can log into E-SESS to generate and print test tickets (vouchers).
Test tickets are then distributed appropriately and students log into E-SESS to take the assessment in a proctored environment.
The primary purpose of the CTECS BPS Maritime Transportation Associate (MTA) Assessment is to distinguish, through successful completion of this assessment, those individuals who demonstrate mastery of maritime service technology core standards, skills, and knowledge as an "entry-level" Maritime Transportation Associate (Florida Frameworks Program Number: 8404100). The goal of the MTA certification is to
- Enhance career opportunities through the achievement of an industry-recognized certification administered by an independent third-party provider
- Elevate the level of performance of entry-level Maritime Transporation Associates to assist these individuals in finding higher-wage jobs
- Ensure employers have a certified workforce to help increase a company's productivity and competitiveness.
CTECS assists BPS by overseeing the administration of the assessment, using our online testing system. We were also asked to be the third party reviewer of the assessment to assure that the assessment is reliable, valid, and meets all high quality assessment qualifications.
