What is BSEP?


Basic Skills Education Program

BSEP (formerly known as FAST) is the commanders’ primary on-duty education program. BSEP is a refresher course covering both math and English that soldiers take to help raise their GT scores when re-testing on the Armed Forces Classification Test (AFCT). BSEP is a teacher-facilitated program with computer lessons for learning enhancement.

Program Goals
  1. Promote Retention
  2. Increase Re-enlistment Options
  3. Improve Job Performance

Classes begin on the first working day of the month except for July. Morning and afternoon sessions are available each month; evening classes are offered quarterly.

Military Recruitment & Marketing Practices

As required by the Department of Defense, the College, its agents, and its employees are prohibited from providing anything valued greater than $10.00 to any person being recruited to enroll at Fayetteville Technical Community College. This prohibition shall apply to gratuities, favors, discounts, entertainment, hospitality, loans, transportation, lodging, meals and any other item having a monetary value. This prohibition shall not limit the College’s ability to grant scholarships to its students.

FTCC recruitment activities also refrains from high-pressure recruitment tactics such as making multiple unsolicited contacts (3 or more), including contacts by phone, email, or in-person, or engage in same-day recruitment and registration for the purpose of securing Service member enrollments.

Employees will sign a Code of Ethical Conduct Statement upon employment with the College, which will be maintained in their personnel file.

Science Prerequisites for Health Professionals

Fayetteville Technical Community College offers Science Prerequisites for Health Professions. These courses are for students who wish to enter a health professions program but need prerequisite courses in order to complete their application. We offer all academic prerequisites in a Hybrid/Evening, Face to Face, DL-Online or Self-Paced Formats.

Once you’ve chosen your ideal profession, you need to determine which college program will enable you to meet your career goals. Then, you need to confirm which courses are required for acceptance into that program. Many health professions programs accept these courses but we encourage you to check with specific schools to verify that the courses are transferable before you apply and/or register.

FTCC offers the courses needed to help you apply for the Accelerated Second Degree BSN Option at East Carolina University or the Interservice Physician Assistant Program (IPAP). The courses offered meet the requirements set forth in AR 601-20 that must be met as part of your Army PA Application. Please note, courses offered assist you with application preparation into the various programs.
