PCAT Announces Additional Test Dates for 2012

The AACP adds overflow dates for October and November 2012.

Due to high PCAT registration rates for September 2012, the AACP has announced that it will be adding testing dates in October and November 2012. There will be limited seats available, so if you are already registered for a test date in September, you are strongly discouraged from trying to change to a new date. Not all dates are available in all locations. For more information, go to
