Adult Education/GED®….

GED Closeout


Northern Neck, Virginia— In striving to provide more adult learners throughout the state with a high school credential, the RCC Adult Education program is partnering with GED® Testing Service to offer the GED® test on computer as of January 2014.

Registering, scheduling and testing on computer will provide a new experience and new benefits for GED® test-takers.  These new features will improve the GED® testing program which is a gateway for adults to find jobs or better paying jobs, enter the workforce or college training programs, and better support themselves and their families.

Randy Trask, GED® Testing Service’s president and CEO said, “Adult learners are often times juggling jobs, families, study time and transportation issues. GED® testing on computer will be a significant step to make the scheduling and testing experience easier, more flexible and faster for adult learners across the state and eventually the country. We are so pleased that the RCC Kilmarnock Center is our partner in this important endeavor.”

The 2014 GED® test will provide an array of new benefits for both the testing center and GED® test-takers. Some of the initial benefits include:

  • One-stop online registration and scheduling available 24/7
  • Flexible testing appointments for test-takers
  • An introduction of basic keyboarding and computer skills
  • Enhanced test security
