Long Beach City College offers typing tests for students and people in the greater community who need a typing certification for professional or employment purposes. Typing tests are free and no appointment is necessary.
Earning a Typing Certificate
To take the typing test you must provide a valid photo ID and complete a 5-minute timed typing test with five or fewer errors.
- You may practice taking timed tests. If one of your practice attempts meets your speed and error requirements, it will be counted for a certificate.
- You may use the same timing document for four attempts and then a different timing document for the next four attempts. You may take as many attempts in a day as you wish, but for every four attempts you take, you must use a different timing document.
- If you are unable to meet your goal, feel free to return to take the test again.
- When you have reached your goal, you will be asked for your picture identification and to print and sign your name in the certificate log. A typing Certificate Card will be filled out, signed by an instructor, and given to you.
