Exit off the I-405 at Ingelwood Avenue. Travel north to Marine Avenue and turn Left. After traveling approximatly 1/2 mile you will see a tall building with NORTHROP written on the top. Just after the building, turn left into the driveway and find parking. Once parked, look for the building with all the ham radio antennas on top. That will be building “S”. Walk down the stairway to the Cafeteria and you will find the testing center.
