Mechanical Learner Series is a basic skills test series originally designed to measure 5 different areas: Reading; Arithmetic; Measurement; Reading Prints & Drawings; and Basic Mechanical Knowledge. Later, a sixth test, Troubleshooting and Problem Solving, was added to the series to assess that aspect of a candidate.

This product was formerly known as the Mechanical Repair Apprentice Battery.

The Basic Mechanical Knowledge test measures knowledge of basic mechanical concepts, such as tools and tool use that could be expected of a mechanical apprentice.

The passages in the Reading test are related to basic mechanical concepts and concepts that a mechanical apprentice may be required to learn while on the job.

The Arithmetic test can be used to determine arithmetic skills that would be required of a mechanical apprentice.

The Troubleshooting and Problem Solving test is an addition to the original series that measures an mechanical apprentice's ability to troubleshoot and problem solve.

The Reading Prints & Drawings test measures a mechanical apprentice's ability to read mechanical prints and drawings.

The Measurement test assesses the ability to measure objects.

The 6 tests in this series are more demanding of job knowledge than a basic skills battery, but less demanding than our Mechanical Maintenance Trainee Test.

Each test is sold separately.
