Skill Assessments:   these are required to be completed within one year of the class by you or your company or a third party.  The cost of Skill Assessments is NOT INCLUDED with the class, however a Skill Assessment session will be available this Spring.  Mike can assist with these if needed.  Skill assessments get sent directly to the company with paper exams. The company must schedule skill assessments. When you complete online exams through PERC the company has to download skill evaluations and use a proctor to process the assessments.  Skills Evaluations no longer go to ITS, rather they get sent to PERC and must be signed by a proctor. A proctor must do the evaluation.  See our overview of Skill Assessments at this link:
