Michael Brannick, President and CEO of Prometric, said, "The level of professionalism, dedication, collaboration and partnership that has been demonstrated over the course of our relationship with EPSO is truly inspiring.
Prometric has delivered more than 120,000 exams for the EPSO through its established network of test centers across the 27 EU member states.
These posts are usually advertised on the EPSO website, in the national press of the countries concerned and on some internet job-boards.
To streamline the pre-selection process, EPSO introduced online testing to assess candidates' verbal and numerical reasoning ability and Kenexa is proud to have contributed significantly to this move over the past 3 years.
We've modernized our procedures to make the best use of technology to ensure we can deal efficiently with the high volume of applications we receive," said David Bearfield, Director of EPSO.
Troy Kanter, President and Chief Operating Officer, Kenexa said, "Over the past three years, Kenexa has built a strong relationship with EPSO and we are honored that EPSO has once again chosen Kenexa to work with them to further their use of computer based testing.

The terminology needed for semantic health information exchange between Nations is also a challenge addressed by the epSOS project: based on a common subset of clinical codes, each Nation maps their own clinical subset codes with the common adopted terminology called pivot.
This platform offers several test tools on line such as validation services of CDA documents (IHE Patient Care Coordination, epSOS medical documents), validation services for HL7 messages or DICOM objects, SAML objects, certificates (in the context of IHE and epSOS project), simulators of actor that simulate the behaviors of the systems according the profile specifications.
Although epSOS is mainly about cross-border health information exchange, the expectation is that it will achieve much more than this.
The main goal of epSOS is to increase patient safety by enabling the electronic exchange of basic patient medical information across Europe's borders.
Finally, the epSOS project is also viewed as a starting point and a stimulus for further co-operation on eHealth development in Europe, which goes well beyond these first two cross-border pilot services.
