Turning Students into Professionals

TestOut has been training individuals for IT certifications since the first Novell CNE certification was introduced. After 27 years of developing and refining our training, we have produced a product we are proud to say has helped over a million individuals prepare for IT exams! We look forward to working with you, and building your IT programs.

The TestOut Difference

For 25 of our 27 years we have been developing the most sophisticated simulations available, replicating a $35,000 computer hardware, software and networking lab. These simulations are integrated with instructional videos, demonstrations, text lessons, quizzes and certification practice exams. All of this is designed with one goal in mind, to get students ready to pass industry certification exams and prepare them for life long careers.

Our relationships and partnerships with the certification vendors allows us advanced access to changes so that our courseware is up-to-date and accurate when those changes occur, not months or even years later.

Quizzes & Exams

A More Skilled Workforce

Employers are looking for skilled and certified IT technicians that are able to hit the ground running. It is much easier to place students with employers if you can show that your students have hands-on experience. But that is difficult to accomplish when hardware and software is in short supply in the classroom and is constantly changing to make it even more difficult to keep up.

LabSim gives every student a chance to practice what they have learned with hands-on labs. TestOut also includes with each course license a TestOut Pro certification exam that is 100% performance based to show employers what students can do, not just what they have memorized.

What our customers are saying.

TestOut's biggest pros are there simulated environments, video tutorials, and customer service. I have used TestOut PC Pro curriculum for the past three years and have had zero complaints; my students are prepared for the workplace and/or college with the educational experience provided by TestOut. Any issue I have ever had was re-mediated within 24 hours but most likely an hour or two. I recommend this curriculum to all my fellow IT instructors, and also business teachers with their Desktop Pro course. My advisory committee has reviewed this curriculum and hires a fair amount of my students after they graduate; and they love how that TestOut is not just preparing a person to pass a certification test by answering multiple choice questions, it is teaching them to actually perform the job.

Anthony Lincoln

IT Instructor

After a rewarding career in the computer industry, I'm a college instructor and I use books as supplemental resources only. Simulators, digital content, virtual labs and other technologies are the new way of learning. I believe that in a couple of years, so many people will be using TestOut that it will be the new expectation. If anyone wants more for themselves and/or their students, TestOut is by far the best product and the best support. I really owe a good part of my success to TestOut.

Brian Miller

A TestOut student and Educator since 2002

You may already know that my students are awesome, but this semester both of my residential sections had a 100% pass rate on certification!

Suzanne Fell

Associate Professor | School of Business

TestOut has proven to be invaluable. Not only a great teaching tool but the skills learned are valuable real world skills. Students learn concepts as well as invaluable troubleshooting skills that will help them on the job. My program would not be where it is without TestOut.

Juan Guerrero

Technology Certification Instructor

In 2013, one student placed 1st nationally in the post-secondary division, and in 2015, another student placed 2nd in the secondary division. Both of the them were exceptional students and TestOut helped them develop the skills needed to excel in the competition and in industry. I could go on and on about how great their products are for the students, but as a teacher, the tools that they provide save me hours of curriculum development and allow me to actually teach.

Wesley Sloan

IT Instructor/Network Systems Tech

TestOut Simulations are absolutely a "must have" for schools teaching I.T. courses. They expose students to all types of different hardware and scenarios. Before using TestOut, it was a nightmare to create labs with equipment in my classroom and my budget didn't allow me to purchase all of the hardware that students needed to learn to connect and configure. Purchasing TestOut for my students ensures they will be able to have exceptional hands-on lab experiences using simulations without me breaking the bank or my back buying and setting up equipment!

Linda Brown


The best part of the program is its instant feedback to students. They know if they have completed a task correctly immediately and can continue to progress. This frees me as the instructor to provide more one on one with those who are struggling and helps students problem solve simple mistake made.

Diane Bode

Information Technology Instructor

Testout is great! The curriculum is up to date with standards, and the interactive labs are amazing!

Jesse Shelkey

IT Instructor

Once I started using TestOut in my class, more students began passing the A+ test. Now I require them to have a specific practice test score before they receive a voucher to take the certification exam. I am a big believer in this product and how it improves student success!
