GED help is available but time is limited

GED tests must be written before the end of November, but there are other options to obtain Adult Basic Education or Adult Graduation.

Dear Editor

It has been announced “The Ministry of Education will discontinue the GED® program at the end of 2014. GED® testing sessions will no longer be offered after November 2014. Candidates who have not passed all five tests must complete them by Nov. 14 or 15, 2014 if they wish to qualify for the B.C. Secondary School Equivalency certificate.”

In our area, those people who wish to complete the requirements for their GED must write their tests Oct 17/18 or Nov. 14/15, 2014 at Thompson Rivers University (TRU) in Kamloops. They can be contacted at 250-828-5471.

If you are 18 years or older, and wish to obtain your Adult Basic Education or your Adult Graduation, there are options for you to take courses online in a variety of Adult Learning and Continuing Education Centres and post-secondary institutions.

If you need more information or help, please feel free to see me at the Employment Center in Ashcroft on Wednesday afternoons from 1-3 p.m. I can give you a variety of options to help you meet your goal of obtaining your education.
