Skills Assessment

A valid maintenance skills assessment test is a critical part of an effective maintenance skills training program and can tell you exactly where your employees are at and allow you to target skill deficiencies in training.

MST skills assessments are effective for the following reasons:

Focused on Job-Specific Skills

MST skills assessments align specifically to the skills defined in our Job Task Analysis, and we test to the skills that were identified as being critical to your operation.


MST hands-on and written testing are developed to be objective. Our test proctors are fully trained on the process of administering our hands-on portions of the assessment to remove any chance of subjectivity in the assessment process.


Where appropriate, our skills assessments incorporate the use of industrial training simulators that can test actual hands-on skills within scenarios that are applicable to the job.


MST assesses both cognitive knowledge and psychomotor skills. We use real world tools and simulators whenever possible to most accurately test the applicable skills.

Objectively measure your employees’ maintenance skills as it relates to the job. Based on our 30 years of experience, we have developed an advanced maintenance skills training program that achieves real results in your workplace. From the effectiveness of the curriculum, instructor, classroom setup, lab exercises, and maintenance skills assessments, our goal is to continually improve each element of the maintenance skills training delivery.

Expose skill gaps to implement targeted training

Save time and money with valid skills assessments. With the information provided by the skills assessments, you will no longer send employees to unnecessary training or send employees to training where they do not have the prerequisite knowledge in order to grasp the skills being taught in an advanced class.

How MST Maintains Reliability in Our Assessment Process

  • Regularly reviewing the correlation between cognitive and psychomotor testing results

  • Aligning the key tasks of the Job Task Analysis to the skills assessed

  • Certification of test proctors to ensure consistency of methodology

  • Obtaining proctor feedback on all assessments to identify any areas of improvement
