NOCTI testing is now being scheduled for fall 2019 for instructors who need the NOCTI for their certification. Exams are being scheduled individually to help meet your schedule.

If you don’t know if you need to take the NOCTI, please contact Julie Turner at the Alabama CTE Department. All tests must be paid in advance, and purchase orders are accepted.
