The Society of Women Engineers have collaborated with the US Army Offers to create a new career exploration program. The Armed Services Vocational Battery-Center Exploration Program Exam, ASVAB-CEP, is designed to help the student discover a suitable career path.

The exam will be held on March 9 at 8:30 a.m. The ultimate goal for the program is to help undecided students declare a major. It can help assess academic ability and predicts success in a wide variety of occupations.

This exam can also help students enlist in the military, as it is used to find jobs that students may qualify for. Many subjects are discussed on the exam, including general questions, science, arithmetic reasoning, word knowledge, paragraph comprehension, mathematics knowledge, auto and shop information, and mechanical comprehension.

“There will be many general questions,” said Ramona Anand, the faculty adviser for the Society of Women Engineers.

This is the first time that this test is available to LCCC students.

“This test is good for any student who is struggling with deciding a major,” said Anand.

This will be “a step to extend a helping hand to students,” and that “this step is for the college as a whole, not just engineers,” according to Anand.

The exam is free of charge and it will be conducted in the Nord Advanced Technologies building in room 142. Students are urged to bring an ID to verify that they are 16 or older and a pencil to complete the exam.

Interested students should register by Feb. 24. Please contact Ramona Anand at ranand@lorainccc.edu or call 440-366-4930. Contact Luke Jamison for any questions at luke.a.jamison.mil@mail.mil or call 440-222-9400.
