The ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) encourages students to explore a wide variety of careers in line with their interests and skills. While the program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense, this career exploration tool is for every student, 10th grade and up (ages 16 to 23), not just those interested in the armed forces. There has never been a requirement that a test-taker with a qualifying score enlist in the military, and the test may simply determine personal aptitude at a particular career.
PVAEC offers an ASVAB Test Prep course which will help prepare you for this important test. Call 564-6525 for more information.
