Frequently Asked Questions
If your assessment reflects an aptitude for IT, you will be contacted for a Pre-Apprenticeship course. This course can be completed 100% online, and it is provided at no cost to you. If your assessment does not indicate an aptitude for IT work, you will be provided additional resources
No, the state of Arkansas is committed to reskilling Arkansans, and therefore the assessment and Pre-Apprenticeship course are provided at no cost to you. This program has been approved by the Division of Workforce Services as an approved training program, and anyone enrolling in this course will still be able to claim their weekly benefit.
Once you have completed the assessment with a score above the threshold, the Arkansas Center for Data Sciences (ACDS) will be in touch with you within two weeks for next steps on how to enroll in the Pre-Apprenticeship
The assessment is limited to 45 minutes and needs to be completed in one session. You cannot exit and restart at a later time, so please plan to only click ‘start’ when you’re in a quiet place and can answer the questions in one sitting. Advanced preparation is not necessary for this assessment, as the assessment itself is evaluating aptitude and potential for the IT field rather than specific skill sets.
The results will be provided to you within two weeks, and a Talent Specialist will be in touch to share next steps with you. Please note that due to the increased volume of participants in our ReSkill Arkansas program, we are working hard to get all questions answered and all participants contacted so you can be even closer to your career in IT.
