The second semester of classes at the Conway Adult Education Center (CAEC) resumed on Tuesday, Jan. 7. New students are enrolling now to prepare for the new GED test which began nationwide on Jan. 1.
It is not too late for those students who did not complete their GED before the old test expired in December, or who never had the opportunity to start the process of obtaining their GED. All students who enroll will learn about all the new classes and free training available that will help them easily navigate through the new "computerized" version of the GED. Students who are already enrolled from the first semester are encouraged to continue their classroom instruction, and will also be able to access the free training in preparation for the new test.
There will be a fee charged to take the GED "Ready" test (formerly called GED Practice Test), as well as the GED Exam. However, fee reduction "vouchers" will be available to students who qualify and who are enrolled and attending an Adult Education Center in Arkansas.
Adults can also enroll in Conway Adult Education to take advantage of the many other FREE programs available designed to help students prepare to enter the workforce, go to college, enter the military, get better jobs/promotions, etc. Training programs are in place for students to learn the most up-to-date computer technology and employment skills!
CAEC has an on-site college/career coach who can assist students with college prep and career planning. Free educational "boot camps" will be running throughout the semester to help students with math and writing skills, how to overcome test anxiety, how to build a resumé, interview techniques, and much more.
For students who need to learn the English language, CAEC still offers English as a Second Languages classes. The public is welcome to take advantage of this free program.
The staff at the Conway Adult Education Center is here to help YOU achieve your educational and/or employment goals! Classes are available Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday nights, 5:30-8:30.
