Supporting Your Testing Success

STATS:  Newly Certified = 1  | Pending Results =  1  | Upcoming Test Candidates in 2018 = 2

The VCI Testing Center now welcomes the CASLI operated RID: NIC test candidates from across the southeast (and even those outside of the southeastern US) to take the National Interpreter Certification test here at the VCI office.

When entering the testing site, our test proctor will welcome you with a smile and a handshake.  You may be nervous but you can relax when you test at the VCI Testing Center.  We have everything ready for you.  We have relaxing essential oils infused into the air, a  cold bottle of water for you to quench your thirst, a candy jar to satisfy your sweet tooth, a locker to protect your personal belongings, and a fantastic testing room with a fan in case you get warm and a white noise machine you may use to tune out any ambient sounds that may distract you during the test.

If you would prefer to stand while testing, we have a tall table for you to use to easily take notes.  If you prefer to sit while testing, we have an armless chair (without wheels) and a table in front of you to use for taking notes.  The lights above you are set for filming and the wall behind you is solid blue so the raters will easily see your work.  We want to see you succeed and join the ranks of the Professional Nationally Certified Sign Language Interpreter!  We are here for you!  You’ve got this!  In case you are a wee bit nervous, don’t sweat it.  Here’s a great blog about How to Overcome Test Anxiety.

NOTE:  CASLI is in charge of setting up your testing date and time; however, once your date/time is set, you may contact the VCI Testing Site with any questions you have prior to arriving.  Our email is:
