“We are excited to announce the addition of TSS certification testing to Xtreme Consulting’s offerings,” said Shawn Bird, General Manager of Consulting Services at Xtreme Consulting. “This acquisition gives us the ability to significantly expand the assessment and certification testing capabilities of the XtremeLabs platform, and gives us the resources needed to bring innovations such as performance-based testing to the broader certification, licensure, and assessment market.”

The company is an official test center of Pearson VUE, Certiport (a Pearson VUE business), Kryterion Global Testing Solutions, Castle Worldwide, TD Testing, and WGU University.
