GED Classes Kennewick, Washington

This article lists all GED® prep locations and test centers in and around Kennewick. In Washington, you need to pass the four subtests of the GED exam to earn your HSE (high school equivalency) diploma.

The GED test can be taken online or at one of Washington State’s certified GED testing sites.

The GED assesses knowledge and skills at a level that’s comparable to that of graduating high school students.

The GED is fully computerized and has four independent subtests in math, science, literacy, and social studies.

You have the liberty to sit for one subtest at a time. No need to complete everything in one take.

It used to be that online GED testing was not a possibility. That was exclusively done at official testing sites.

This has now changed as we saw the launch of an online GED testing option. Learn more at the bottom of this page.

Introducing the online GED exam

In earlier days, there never was the option to sit for the GED exam via the internet. If you were looking to earn your GED credential, you always needed to appear personally at one of Washington State’s official GED testing facilities.

But recently, that has changed with the introduction of the online proctored GED test. A proctor will monitor online whether you do everything in line with the rules and regulations. To learn all about this interesting development, check out this article: Introducing an online GED testing option.
