People who speak different languages work in your company. Such a multicultural environment is a reason to be proud, but also a challenge. At VCA Talen, we put emphasis on safety and we understand how important it is that there are no misunderstandings on this topic resulting from language barriers. That is why we offer VCA exams in many different languages. This way, you can always be sure that we offer the exam in your and your employees’ language. Please note that exams in most languages are available after registration 48-hours in advance, but some languages may require earlier registration. The official exam is always organized by an official certification party and may only take place at physical locations (it is not possible to take the official exam online).
