BTC Offers Fast Track to GED

Blackhawk Technical College is teaming with the Southwest Wisconsin Workforce Development Boad to assist students planning to complete their GED this year, the last year before the GED significantly changes.

Nationally, the new GED test is starting in January of 2014, which will include computer-based testing. Those students who already have started the GED testing process must complete the five-part exam this year or they will have to start over in 2014.

Students who have yet to begin the GED process or students who are interested in finishing their GED this year can attend a general information session at the BTC Beloit or Monroe campuses, or at the Rock County Job Center to establish eligibility.

The assessment and general information sessions are scheduled for: Tuesday, May 7 at BTC-Monroe, 210 4th Ave., Room 414, from 4:30-8:30 p.m, Wednesday, May 8 at BTC-Beloit Center, 50 Eclipse Center, Room 127, from 4:30-8:30 p.m., Friday, May 10 at the Rock County Job Center, 1900 Center Ave., Janesville, Room G, from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m, and Friday, May 17 at the Job Center, Room G, from 8:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m.

If accepted, program participants qualify for fast track daytime preparation classes at the Job Center from May 21-31 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. or in the evening at BTC-Monroe and BTC-Beloit from May 29-June 20 from 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.  Space is limited to 15 participants.
