Brush Up

Enroll in a walk-in NCRC test prep class at any LCC campus. Classes are internet based, interactive, and self-paced. A fee waiver may be available if unemployed or underemployed. Test fee can be waived upon completion of 30 hours of test prep (at level 4 or higher). Test prep hours must be completed prior to pre-registering for the actual test to qualify for the test fee waiver.
