OET expanding presence in the US
OET, the English language test for healthcare professionals, will be available at a new venue in the US from March. The New York City test venue will be managed by Rennert International.
OET is the world’s only international English language test specifically for healthcare professionals who would like to work in an English-speaking environment. The test provides assessment of all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking – through test material designed to reflect real healthcare scenarios that candidates are likely to encounter in the workplace.
Eimear Harrison, Executive Vice President of Rennert International, said: “We are excited and honoured to be offering OET in our Midtown Manhattan hub school of 46 years. Our core mission has been to enable international students and professionals to succeed through effective communication in their respective fields. OET offers a huge step forward for international healthcare professionals to focus on qualifying in a language exam that fits more precisely with their desired job and career goals than what was previously available in the US. Rennert is proud to contribute to elevating the healthcare experience for all through OET.”
OET CEO Sujata Stead said: “Rennert International is a very welcome addition to our portfolio of test venues internationally. Demand for OET in the US is growing and opening a venue in the heart of New York allows us to begin to meet some of this demand.” She added that further OET venues in the US were planned for the coming months.
