As a graduate of SMC HIT program, you should consider taking the HITPro certification exam. If you requested a voucher to take the exam free of charge see below for deadlines and rules. If you have not requested a voucher by the deadline then you can no longer receive one. 

You should consider taking the exam for the role that you have completed. For example, if you completed the Trainer role, then you should plan to take the Trainer exam, although you may take any or all of the tests of the HIT Pro exam. 

The document HIT Pro Study Guide contains detailed information about the exam. Please read it carefully and fully before you proceed to reading the rest of this document.
 
Here are some important notes:

* A student is only eligible for one voucher. If you have received a voucher from another school, then if get another voucher, it will be rejected on the day you present it to the testing center.
* Each test covers certain materials that our program has covered most of. The training program did not cover every unit of every component. You will need to self-study some units and one or two components. To get the full curriculum go to http://www.onc-ntdc.org or http://www.onc-ntdc.info Set up a profile and download the components.
* If you received​ a voucher and it expired, or you do not pass the test, you will not be issued another voucher.
