What should I wear or bring for the first day of testing?
There is no dress code for the first day of testing. Because you will be performing tasks indoors, it is recommend that you wear comfortable and appropriate attire. Applicants are required to provide a photo ID when checking-in at the testing location. Water fountains and restrooms will be available at each testing location. Food and beverages are not available at the testing sites. You will have a limited amount of time between testing phases so applicants are encouraged to bring any food and beverages that they may need for the day. Please note, eating, drinking or the use of electronic devices are not permitted during the written test.
