Gale, part of Cengage Learning, and Peterson’s, a Nelnet company, today announced that Cengage Learning’s proprietary Delmar career certifications will be added for the first time to the Testing & Education Reference Center (TERC), which Gale distributes to libraries on behalf of Peterson’s.
TERC is a resource for public, academic and K-12 library users providing in-depth information on colleges and universities, graduate and professional programs, distance learning, corporate training, available scholarships and awards, preparatory entrance tests and online practice tests. The Delmar certifications being added cover a variety of fields, such as medical assisting, cosmetology, information technology, auto and medium/heavy duty truck repair and collision repair.
The technical implementation to incorporate this new content is underway, and the new certifications are scheduled to be released in April 2011. More than 100 additional certifications—a mix of initial certifications and continuing education credits, including some content in both English and Spanish—will follow in future product updates. All current TERC subscribers will receive access to these added certifications at no additional cost.
For more information on these additional resources or to set up a trial of TERC, please contact Kristina Massari at [email protected].
