Each CARSability assessment covers a range of topics within a particular occupation. Results are calculated to identify a person’s individual skills gaps rather than overall mark. Technicians may learn that they are strong in one area while discovering another where they would benefit from additional training. CARSability will help pinpoint areas for improvement and suggest training based on an individual’s requirements.
