Why take the GED®?
Right now in the US, not enough people have the required skills or knowledge to fill available jobs. 4 million available jobs, in fact. The GED® test can help solve this economic need by opening the doors for millions of adult learners to college courses, apprenticeships and job training—the pathway adults need to gain skills and knowledge, fill these jobs, and care for their families.
That’s why GED Testing Service made the decision to overhaul the test and build a program from the ground up, specifically for adult learners. They invested 5 years and tens of millions of dollars to provide the country with the standards-based and technology-enhanced test that the country and these adults need.
