MADISON AREA SHEET METAL WORKERS JOINT APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING COMMITTEE

The Tests


Please call 608.220.4546 or e-mail csimons@madisonsmjatc.org to obtain the Test Authorization Sheet.

The aptitude tests are administered by MATC.  These are not tests of your knowledge of sheet metal work.  They are tests of your basic skills and aptitude. The Accuplacer tests will measure three areas:  Reading Comprehension, Arithmetic, and Elementary Algebra.  These tests are not timed.  You will need to schedule an appointment to take the Accuplacer test either at the MATC South Campus or the MATC Commercial Ave. Campus.  Cost of the Accuplacer test is $5.00 per test component ($15 total for all three (3) tests), payable to MATC.  You will receive your test scores immediately after taking the test.  If you have not passed the required portions of the test (Reading - 66 minimum, Arithmetic - 66 minimum, Elementary Algebra - 33 minimum) you will need to retest in those areas. 

We strongly recommend that you take the Accuplacer Sample Test available at the following link prior to scheduling the actual test:

Failing the Test
If you do not get the minimum required scores on one or more parts of the test:

a.   You must receive tutoring in the portions of the test that you have failed before you can be allowed to retest.
b.   You only need to retake the portions of the test you failed.
c.   Retesting can only be scheduled through this office.  You cannot schedule your own test.

PASSING THE TEST
Applicants who pass the test will be scheduled to attend the monthly JATC meeting to receive their Letter of Introduction.  You are now eligible to become an apprentice!
