Utility Industry Math Boot Camp for the CAST Battery
The Construction And Skills Trades Selection System, CAST, is a battery of skill and ability tests designed and validated by the Edison Electric Institute, EEI, to aid in the selection of candidates across a wide variety of construction and skilled trades occupations. This test battery measures skills and abilities that are critical for effective job performance. There are four CAST tests:
Graphic Arithmetic, Mathematical Usage, Mechanical Concepts, Reading for Comprehension

Because of a lack of adequate math skills caused a CAST failure rate of more than 50%, the Center for Energy Workforce Development, CEWD, asked Helicon, Inc. to develop a boot camp that could be used by educational institutions to help people prepare for the CAST battery. The following items from the Boot Camp have been made available for sale to individuals.
