The target time frame for the events will be from 10:30am – 11:30am. The 1st Event will be focused on Health/Business December 16th. These virtual events will be recorded for teachers to use at later dates if unable to attend. Please contact me, your career specialist for the zoom information.

What is the ACCUPLACER?
The ACCUPLACER supports students ready to start earning credits toward their degree as well as those who need to develop their skills before taking college-level courses. ACCUPLACER scores let students know where they stand academically, which makes it easier for them to plan a successful path toward a college degree.
The ACCUPLACER is also used by Trident Technical College to determine optimal placement in DE College Level courses. There is no testing time limit, however, most complete the exam in approximately 90 Minutes.
- Lunch will be provided.
