Regarding the Supervisory Test Battery
The Supervisory Test Battery (STB) is a computer-based test that measures supervisory skills and abilities. It is sometimes combined with a test of technical knowledge in an exam for a particular title.

Your score on the STB is valid for two years, and may be used for titles other than the supervisory title for which you originally applied. You may retake the STB after one year.
