Vocational Preparatory Instruction

Students who are enrolled in a Post-secondary Adult Vocational Program greater than 180 clock-hours must complete a basic skills examination within the first 6 weeks after admission to the program. The Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) is administered by the Assessment Services Department at each IRSC campus. Students are encouraged to test prior to the beginning of their program. Minimum basic skills grade levels in mathematics and language must be met. Any student scoring below the acceptable levels must be provided with instruction to correct identified deficiencies. At the completion of preparatory instruction, the student will be retested.
