SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA (PRWEB) October 31, 2005
As part of their “Leave No Adult Behind” campaign, Comcourse, Inc. has developed a comprehensive free online GED preparation program. Located at GEDforfree.com, the program is now available for anyone who needs to prepare for their GED exam. High school counselors, community and career college administrators, and web server administrators everywhere are welcome to link to the site.
David Grebow, Chief Learning Officer, said, “As we work with partner schools in the career college market, we find that many of the people trying to enroll in career college programs are being turned away because they do not have a high school diploma or equivalent. Most of them have family and work commitments, and cannot afford to take any other GED preparation program.” He added,” So as part of our “Leave No Adult Behind” campaign, we decided to create a completely free and comprehensive online GED program.”
The General Education Development (GED) tests allow adults to demonstrate that they have the skills and knowledge comparable to a high school degree. Over one million people take the GED every year worldwide, and of these, about 70% pass. They take the GED in order to get jobs, further their careers, earn promotions, or qualify for education or training. Passing the exam earns them a certificate that the majority of colleges, training schools, and employers recognize as the equivalent of a high school diploma.
GEDforFree is a complete preparation program that can help adult students pass their GED tests. Since the courses are online, students have the advantage of taking courses anytime and anywhere. The courses cover all of the main topic areas, including Language Arts – Reading and Writing, Social Studies, Science, and Math. Designed for individuals with a ninth-grade education or higher, the course provides a solid foundation in the GED topics, and is full of helpful hints and tips. The online courses are available to anyone who needs or wants to study for the GED exam.
“The entire program is entirely free of charge.” added Fiachra O’Sullivan, VP of Business Development. “There’s no need to pay anything at any point. Simply fill out an enrollment form and you get your username and password to enter the course. Then you’re ready to prepare for your high school equivalency diploma and, once you pass, move on if you want, to a better job or a new career.”
The average age of GED test-takers is over 24 - over 30 in Canada - and almost three-fourths of the test-takers are over age 19, proving that it is never too late to receive the recognition and benefits of the GED certification. The program is on the web at http://www.gedforfree.com and is already enrolling students.
