A safer, more confident world

Yardstick started as a small practice exam company with a big idea: that technology and innovation could change whole industries. Since then, we’ve grown, evolved, and acquired, and we’ve emerged as leaders in high-stakes testing, online training, consulting, and more. Each new business venture brings us closer to our shared goal to help build a safer, more confident world.
