Adult Basic Education (ABE)

The Adult Basic Education program is designed to help those seeking secondary and post-secondary academic advancement and/or immediate improvement in employability skills.

Note: Pre-Registration and Initial Assessment is Required.

Basic Skills & Education Program (BSEP)

BSEP (formerly know as FAST) is the commanders’ primary on-duty education program. The purposes of BSEP are to promote retention, increase re-enlistment options, and improve job performance.

Since BSEP is a refresher course in both math and English, many soldiers take it to help them raise their GT scores when retesting on the Armed Forces Classification Test (AFCT). BSEP is a teacher-facilitated program with computer lessons for learning enhancement.

The course is approximately one month and consists of half-day classes. Soldiers can choose between a morning session from 0900-1300 or an afternoon session from 1300-1700. Classes begin on the first working day of the month.
