Intake and Assessment Process
- Intake appointments are 30-45 minutes.
- Intake appointments allow us to sit down and talk about how the program will meet your needs. It is also an opportunity to discuss other options if you realize the program isn’t the best match for you.
- We conduct a Literacy Assessment, which is 10 multiple choice questions based on content from the safety certification courses. In order to be successful in the course, you must get a 7/10 on this assessment.
- During your appointment, you will find out which day you can expect to know your status in the course.
