Skill Testing

Have employers asked, “what are your skill levels in typing, word processing, data entry, or 10-key”?  Come into the Skills Development Area and have your skills tested so that you’ll be prepared the next time they ask:

  • Typing 

  • Word processing  

  • Data entry  

  • 10-key skills

The Workforce Development Centers are used by many employers to test applicant's abilities on typing, word processing, data entry, or 10-key.  Visit the Skills Development Area to take one or more tests with immediate results!  Test results are kept on file for future reference.

Career Assessment

Choices is a career assessment and planning tool used by individuals who want to examine/discover their interests and transferable skills.  This information may then be used to explore career options, educational opportunities, as well as employment outlook, and earnings.  Individuals will be furnished a copy of their results for their records.

Individuals are able to:  

  • Assess interests, transferable skills, and work values. 

  • Understand how their skills are transferable from one career to another.   

  • Explore career options.    

  • Plan high school classes in preparation for college. 

  • Evaluate and compare vocational schools, colleges and universities. 

  • Research databases for financial aide information, employment outlook, average wage and much more.
