Educators are using the OPAC System for pre-testing and post-testing business education and office education students. Others are using it as an exit exam and offering OPAC certificates upon completion. Since the OPAC software measures critical skills & abilities in a modern, job-related manner, it is an ideal certification and testing solution for the business office education classroom and career development program.
One of the best things a teacher can do for their students is to help provide them with the opportunities necessary to succeed in the workplace. OPAC Certification will not only document their success in certain office and clerical skills but provide those same students with encouragement to pursue and succeed in related careers.
New OPAC Online Certification Available in Version 10.8

Within the email, students will receive a permanent hyperlink allowing access to their certificate 24/7. Watch the video below to learn more:
The OPAC System is a comprehensive office, clerical, and software skills testing and certification program. The software tests for skills & abilities in all of the MS Office word processing, spreadsheet, and database applications, including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access. Office skills tests include keyboarding, proofreading, data entry, and transcription. The OPAC System also offers a battery of tests specifically designed for the legal and medical environments. New tests are regularly added to the software throughout the year, with clients participating in our OPAC Plus premium customer program receiving complimentary software upgrades on a regular basis.
The OPAC System is self-administering and self-scoring saving business teachers and educators time. The business student sits at the computer and the program does the rest. The tests appear – as selected by the test administrator – one after another, until the applicant is informed by OPAC that the test session is complete. OPAC automatically scores virtually every aspect of the test. You can generate hard copies of test results, and also save test results on a PC or network for reference. Thousands of students and job applicants (at hundreds of schools and agencies) have been tested by OPAC with great success.
