The first step in getting ready to use any CTECS assessment is to set up an assessment purchasing account with CTECS. It is only necessary to do this once per school year. There are two payment options; the Purchaser's Contract is strongly preferred. Please do not submit a Purchaser's Contract if you will use the Purchase Order (PO) method.

Purchasers are invoiced for the tests that were taken during the monthly billing period.

All of the major credit cards may be used to pay for CTECS Workplace Readiness Skills Assessments. Please follow the procedures below to pay for assessments using a credit card.

  1. Set up your account by submitting the online webform as usual.
  2. Request an invoice provided with a link to pay by credit card.
  3. Call/email Dana Wilson at CTECS (404-994-6536 / to request the linked invoice or to directly process your order. Please note that there will be a 3 percent fee charged for each credit card transaction/invoice total. If you would like to reduce the fee to just $0.50 per invoice/transaction, have Dana set up an ACH payment. The standard option of paying by check is still available.

Option 1 (strongly preferred) : Complete and Submit the Purchaser's Contract webform.

Note: The contract must be completed by the appropriate person responsible for payment for the assessments.

This method is quick and easy. Once you submit, you will receive an email response with a contract number. The contract number is required for completing and submitting the Test Site Administrator and Student Registration form, which is the next step. 

If you have questions about the contract, please contact Dana Wilson at (404-679-4501 Ext. 3543). Additional questions should be sent to Ken Potthoff,, 404-994-6538, Darren Morris,, 804-543-6094, or Robyn Marshall,, 404-994-6534. 

Option 2: Submit a Purchase Order (PO)

One PO per school or division should be used for assessment purchases for the entire school year.

Once the PO is received and processed, a contract number will be sent. The contract number is required for test site administrator and student registration, so it should be provided to the test site administrator(s) immediately after receipt.

Please make the purchase order payable to the Career and Technical Education Consortium of States (CTECS). POs may be faxed or mailed to Dana Wilson; please do not send duplicates. Fax it to 404-492-5396 or mail it to CTECS, Attn: Dana Wilson,1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033-4097.
