Library and non-library units
Education Services Officer
What's the difference?
- Library units keep a stock of tests that can be administered to any member.
Tests are kept at the unit in a secure safe.
- Non-library units order individual tests, one at a time, for specific members.
Tests can only be administered to the specific member. Once administered, the test and answer sheets must be returned to CGI.
