Praxis® Test

Want to become a certified and licensed educator? Take the Praxis test to validate your subject matter knowledge and academic skills and become a qualified educator.

The Praxis® tests are taken by individuals entering the teaching profession as part of the certification process required by many states and professional licensing organizations.

At Blue Ridge CTC we offer the exam several times a month. Typically the first and 3rd Wednesdays (subject to change).
