Prep Centers or Adult Education Centers in
each county in Northeast Tennessee are helping residents prepare
for the GED. In Carter County, free GED preparatory classes
are offered from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. four nights a week and Monday
- Friday, 8:00 am - Noon.
Obtaining the GED is a three-step process. First, contact your local Prep Center or Adult Education Center. Then, prepare for the GED test. Instructors at each center will help applicants prepare for the test. Finally, complete an application to take the GED Test. The Prep Center instructor will give the applicant pre-test scores which must be taken to the main campus of the Tennessee Technology Center at Elizabethton, 426 Highway 91, an authorized GED Test site, for test scheduling. The $55 test fee must be pre-paid with cash or money order unless the fee is waived by the Prep Center.
