How Do I Get Started?
Take the Basic Skills Assessment Test. This test is held every Tuesday or Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m., as well as Tuesday afternoons at 5:00 p.m. Appointment is necessary. Be sure to bring a picture ID (driver's license preferred). Test Cost: $10.00. It is a good idea to arrive 30 minutes before the start time. Individuals who are late will not be admitted to the test.
Counselors/Program Advisors and other Student Services staff members assist prospective and current students with general information, career-related, school-related and personal issues. The general objective is to provide students with services necessary to make informed career choices and successfully complete their occupational education.
Exceptional Student Education
Our Exceptional Student Education (ESE) Specialist provides assistance to adult special needs students. All programs, campus organizations and activities and facilities are accessible to McFatter students with disabilities, allowing them to function as independently and effectively as possible while attending classes.
Follow-up is integrally related to occupational placement. At McFatter Technical Center, assistance is provided to current and former students in obtaining employment, enrolling in further education or a combination of these two. This requires careful assessment of the student's abilities, aptitudes and interests. Instructors work cooperatively with our Job Placement Specialist to ensure successful placement for McFatter's students.
Students who exit with marketable skills are subject to the follow-up process. The Florida Education and Training Placement Information Program (FETPIP) receives data from state and federal agencies which assists in identifying locations and areas of employment or continuing educational status of McFatter's students who complete or leave a program. Broward school district personnel collect supplemental follow-up data.
The Student Services Director is responsible for coordinating McFatter's placement and follow-up process. Students are encouraged to seek employment assistance from their instructors, our Job Placement Specialist and from vacancies posted in the Job/Placement Center.
