Wayne Pike Workforce Alliance opens Pearson VUE® Test Center


Wayne Pike Workforce Alliance opens Pearson VUE® Test Center

Wayne Pike Workforce Alliance (WPWA) announces the opening of a Pearson VUE® Testing Center in their new location at 92 Main Avenue in Hawley. The center offers hundreds of certification exams for various industries including the Pennsylvania Educator Certification, Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) and General Educational Development (GED) tests. The WPWA Test Center brings a vital resource to Wayne and Pike Counties by providing individuals in our community convenient access to our testing facilities. The new testing services will improve the quality of life for our residents, enabling individuals to become invested in their own personal growth through education. The WPWA Pearson VUE® Test Center is partially funded by a grant from the United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Wayne Pike Workforce Alliance to meet the community's needs. Offering a broad variety of industry recognized certifications that can now be tested here at home is a great asset to our local employers and job seekers alike. WPWA's testing for Information Technology, Healthcare industries and education sector occupations are just a few examples.” Lucyann Vierling, Executive Director of WPWA

WPWA is closely partnering with Wayne Pike Adult Literacy Program and Northampton Community College who offer GED preparation, instruction and materials for individuals looking to complete their high school education requirements. November 2014 marked the first tests we administered through the new test center. Our inaugural test takers came from the Wayne Pike Adult Literacy Program where the students received GED preparation, tutoring and support from Faye White who has been volunteering for the organization for two years.

WPWA continues to fill a role in our community that identifies, develops further relationships and creates educational training options that are otherwise not available in Pike and Wayne Counties.
