    ASVAB Testing - Salina Area Technical College

    Salina Tech now offers the opportunity for students to take the Armed Services Vocation Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) every month! The ASVAB is a great way for students to assess their own skills and abilities, and to learn about potential careers that fit with those abilities that they might not have considered previously. Any students may take the ASVAB, and it is not required to share the results with the military.  It will be on our campus – 2562 Centennial Road – in the downstairs computer lab in Building A.  It is first-come, first-serve.
