Typing Tests

Smart provides five-minute typing tests. The tester does not need to schedule an appointment. However, we do ask that the tester come between the hours of 9am-11am or 2pm-4pm. The best score obtained during visit will be reflected on a certified certificate. Our certificates list tester name, gross words per minute, # of errors, net words per minute, and the date the test was administered. Our certified certificates are recognized by both the City of Redding and Anderson, as well as, the County of Shasta’s Personnel Office. Testing is available in Redding, Weaverville, and Humboldt!
