The Construction and Skilled Trades, 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, and Reading for Comprehension. The Mathematics Manual for the CAST (part of the Utility Industry Math Boot Camp) was created 10 years ago at the behest of the Center for Energy Workforce Development to address a nationwide severe failure rate of the CAST math tests. The Manual, recently revised, has 350 pages of explanatory text and appendices, practice problems and answer keys.
