Hartsville High School Career Specialist Sara Orlowski hosted a training session April 23 focused on interpreting scores for the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test.

Career specialists from around the Pee Dee and from the Santee region traveled to Hartsville to learn from Orlowski, who also serves as the president of the S.C. Career Development Professionals Division of the S.C. Association for Career and Technical Education.

The instruction in Hartsville served as follow-up training to an intensive workshop in March, hosted by armed services representatives from Fort Jackson in Columbia. During that session, Dr. Khadeejah Timazee and Shantelle James with U.S. Military Entrance Processing Command at Fort Jackson provided guidance for understanding the ASVAB and its Career Exploration Program.

“These workshops, in collaboration with Regional Career Specialist across the state, will continue to ensure Army educational resources are understood, shared and support the efforts of schools in their preparation of students towards career success,” James said.

The career specialists also underwent training for administering a career test designed to help students identify their work-related interests.
