Foundational Assessment for Skilled Trades (or FAST) is a digital update of the Evaluating Academic Readiness for Apprenticeship Training (EARAT) developed around 2000. The platform assists students planning to apprentice in skilled trades to identify areas in math, science or communications that may need additional study to ensure success. Instructors can monitor student results and offer resources for further study.

Learning Outcomes:
  • History and purpose of EARAT and FAST
  • How the comprehensive skill assessments help students prepare for apprenticeship
  • How instructors can monitor assessment results
