Adults Can Start a New Chapter in Life with a Free GED® Practice Test

More than one million adults in Georgia don’t have a high school diploma, and without a high school credential they are less likely to get a good-paying job, discover a great career, and enjoy a much better life.  There is no better time than now to take the one easy step that can change their lives forever. It can start with a free General Education Development (GED®) practice test according to Mike Burrell, Dean for Adult Education at Ogeechee Technical College.

On February 14, Ogeechee Technical College’s Adult Education centers in Bulloch, Evans, and Screven Counties will be offering adult learners the opportunity to take a GED practice test at no charge.  All prospective test-takers need to do is visit one of the centers to see how a small investment of their time can open the door to greater opportunities for them and their families, said Burrell.

Staff will also be on hand at the centers to explain what is needed to sign up for the GED preparation classes that are always free to every Georgian.  Someone from the College will explain how the cost of taking the full set of GED tests should not be a deterrent to anyone because grants and other financial assistance are available.  “We’re actively campaigning to let people throughout our area know that we can help them prepare for the GED test and, with a little effort, they can earn a GED credential.  After that, we’ll assist with their transition from GED diploma to college degree or into a better job,” stated Burrell.

“Ogeechee Technical College has many programs which help enrich lives, but one which I think can be the most significant is the Adult Education program.  Getting a GED which allows further education is one of the greatest impacts for improving one’s life,” stated Ogeechee Tech President, Dr. Dawn Cartee.

The College’s Adult Education centers include:
Bulloch County Workforce Development Center, at 8 Joseph E. Kennedy Boulevard in Statesboro; the Evans Technical Education Complex at 625 Cedar Avenue in Hagan; and the Screven County Workforce Development Center at 107 South Community Drive in Sylvania.
