BSEP (Basic Skills Education Program):

The Basic Skills Education Program (BSEP) provides tutored sessions to help Soldiers master mathematical, reading, and writing skills required by their Army jobs. Sometimes BSEP is also known as Functional Academic Skills Training (FAST). These courses vary in length and delivery, based on the needs and developmental level of the Soldier. Soldiers can enroll at any time as long as there is space available.

BSEP/FAST serves as a Commander's primary on-duty education program. While on duty, it is an opportunity for Soldiers to study and increase their education skills. Upon completion, Soldiers can re-take various Army personnel tests that can assist in changing MOS fields, applying for opportunities and programs such as Officer Candidate School, Warrant Officer School, Green-to-Gold, the Physician Assistant (PA) program, etc and other opportunities. Soldiers are also able to take the course using it as personal opportunity to further their personal educational goals and/or college readiness goals.

BSEP Class Options: 

The Fort Moore Education Center offers 3 options that satisfy the requirements of the BSEP program.  All options require a commander approved application for reservation and your place of duty will be here at the Education Center.  The 3 options also include taking the TABE 11M Pre-Test and the TABE 12M Post-Test (first and last days of class).  Soldiers will need to register to take the AFCT with a required commander approved DA Form 4187.
