The use of computer simulations to test a person's technical psychomotor skills in health and other technician roles is in its infancy. This paper presents insights into how computer simulations can be developed to test a person's ability to perform psychomotor tasks. They are the result of a two-year project that has resulted in a set of international certification tests for ophthalmic technicians within the United States and Canada. A proven rationale and methods for meeting some of the major challenges in using computer simulations for skill certification testing are presented.
