COURSE DESCRIPTION: The SMART (Skills to Make Adults Ready to Succeed) curriculum is composed of two segments: an academic core curriculum of reading, math and writing; and four living and workplace components. Each lesson has three difficulty levels that addresses Adult Basic Education (ABE). This curriculum may be used for ABE students with a reading grade level equivalent 4 – 7 and may also be used as a non academic resource. The program is currently being moved from a homework packet program to an online home study program. This training will cover the traditional paper-based materials as well showcase the new online SMART program. This training must be completed every three years.

We look forward to your participation.
