The City of North Las Vegas does not recommend any particular agency or school for testing purposes. For this reason, we suggest you look in the telephone book, in the yellow pages section, under Employment. Most agencies will provide the testing; however, you will need to call them first to make an appointment, and ascertain fees charged.

Accurate Net Words Per Minute is calculated as follows:

Example:

Gross Words 55 Gross wpm
Minus Errors -10 Errors
= Accurate Net wpm 45 Accurate wpm

Thank you.
