Specific scores are required for application to certain programs or in order to successfully complete a program (see individual program pages). In an effort to avoid over-whelming students enrolled in career classes, we recommend that students complete testing and upgrading prior to career enrollment.

Only students 16 years of age and older may test. Parent permission is required for 16 and 17 year olds. Minor Permission Form.
