Certification Tester Information

Certification Testers volunteer to administer written, online and skills examinations throughout the state, providing a standardized evaluation process for written, online and skills testing and assure every candidate is evaluated in a fair and consistent manner. They are the “backbone" of the certification program, taking time on a voluntary basis to assist with written and skills evaluations on behalf of the DFPES.

If you are interesting in becoming a Certification Tester for the DFPES please contact Rebecca Bestul, Certification Coordinator,  at (307) 857-9253 or rebecca.bestul@wyo.gov.
