GITS and ITTS form alliance for off-shore computer-based testing services


Gainesville Independent Testing Service, LLC, GITS, “has begun an alliance with ITTS, International Testing and Training Service, a global organization which offers secured and proctored computer-based testing outside the USA.

“This expands opportunities for contractors and other trades persons to keep up on their certifications and licenses when working outside the US,” according to Jay E. Bowermeister, C.E.O.

“With hundreds of locations, most of our overseas candidates will have no trouble finding an exam site nearby,” stated Rory Rorabaugh, GITS Business Development Director.


“Candidates will first contact us for eligibility to take an exam, pay GITS for the content, and then we will arrange for the candidate to go to the ITTS e-commerce store, to set up and pay for the proctoring appointment at an ITTS location,” said Daniel Ortega, Proctor Training and Test Center Coordinator.


As of this date Gainesville Independent Testing Service, LLC has a network of licensed collegiate test centers in Florida, Missouri and Montana.

GITS developing its own computer-based testing network.


Gainesville Independent Testing Service, LLC., GITS, “has begun proctored testing with its own licensee test centers in the State of Florida,” according to Jay E. Bowermeister, C.E.O.

Working with FACTA, an association of Florida collegiate test centers and their executive Gay Withers, GITS has added licensees to proctor the contractor related exams for the State. "A major candidate advantage," according to Daniel Ortega, Proctor Training and Test Center Coordinator, "will be the added convenience of more locations and less driving time for candidates."

"In the past, GITS has worked with a major test center network organization. However as technology and software has simplified candidate scheduling and with the advent of secure Internet delivery of exam content, it made much more sense for us to work directly with test centers than with a test network vendor," said Rory Rorabaugh recently hired as Director of Business Development.

According to Rorabaugh, "we are seeking to have additional licensee test centers in the States of Missouri and Montana. We are actively reaching out to set up licensee relationships with colleges, universities and private institutions that can meet our minimum requirements for equipment, supervision and security."

GITS pays the proctor site for every exam and there are no minimum monthly test volumes for compensation.

Interested locations in FL, MO and MT should please contact Claude E. "Rory" Rorabaugh, Director of Business Development by email, rory@gitsllc.net or by telephone, 503-522-7158.
