What is ABET?

ABET stands for Adult Basic Education and Training. Before the transformation in adult education which began in the early nineties, education for adults had little application to their lives and their work. By combining Adult Basic Education with training there was a commitment to making both education and training more meaningful and appropriate for Adults. Today ABET offers a route to a general education that is aimed at making significant improvement for Adults both in the community and in the workplace.
