Adult Education


The Adult Education (AE) and General Educational Development (GED) Testing Division assists Alabamians in achieving the basic skills and the credentials they need to be productive workers, family members, and citizens. The Adult Education Program provides free basic skills instruction in reading, writing, math, English language competency, and GED Test preparation. The GED Testing Program supervises all official GED Test Centers, issues diplomas and transcripts, and serves as a liaison between the department and the GED Testing Service.
