Listed here are all GED® prep facilities and testing locations in the Pocatello region.
Idaho is using the GED exam for high school equivalency (HSE) testing.
The HSE test gives individuals who could not graduate high school the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
Testing is done at a level that’s similar to what high school students must command upon graduation.
The GED test includes four tests on these academic fields: literacy, math, science, and social studies.
You have two years to pass these four independent subtests (modules).

Who is eligible for the GED test?
Adults who have not finished high school and don’t have some other secondary education credential, now have a chance to obtain their GED test certificate through the new computer-based GED test assessment system that was introduced in January 2014. No longer is there a paper-and-pencil-based GED examination available.
The completely rebuilt GED exam assesses the employment market and college readiness skills and knowledge that nowadays individuals need to be successful in the world of today, and teaches them basic computer literacy to be able to compete in today’s challenging job market. The diploma that you will receive when you pass the Idaho GED exam is recognized as equivalent to a high school diploma and accepted as such by practically every state and federal institution, college, and businesses.
Past results, earned before January 2014 are not valid anymore, and the GED test is only available on the computer. The computer format will surely be beneficial to adult students who must move into jobs or educational training programs. The fee for the GED exam is $120.00, ($30.00 per individual module)
There is no need to take or pay the whole set of four tests together. You can register and pay for each test at the moment you think you are prepared enough to be successful. The vast majority of prep centers and testing facilities have many of the resources available to deal with all your questions regarding the GED exam and they will be happy to give you all possible support.
Most GED preparation programs offer free classes for adults who want to develop or refresh their skills before they sit for the examination. Classes are available all around the state at various times to serve you even at irregular times. In case you can’t attend classes because of other commitments, or because you don’t feel comfortable in a classroom setting, online preparation courses are now a great alternative, provided you are well-disciplined.
Since the beginning of 2014, applicants only need to go to the website GED.com to learn everything about the new series of the GED exam. This great and user-friendly website really is a one-stop site for all your GED test needs and includes practice tests so you will receive recommendations on how you can prepare best for the examination.
Go to GED.com and sign up with My GED to discover an online portal that guides you through the whole process and offers advice on registration, payments, convenient location selection, reviewing your GED scores, how to get transcripts, employment market developments, trends and school profiles.
Is the GED exam online?
Despite the fact that the GED examination is fully “computerized” you still are required to show up at one of Idaho’s authorized test centers. There is no online GED testing available and if you happen to see one of the many websites that want to make you believe another story, you can be sure the site is false, and their “diplomas” a scam and worthless.
Pocatello (population 54,000) is the seat of Bannock County. The city was named after a Shoshone-Bannock Tribes Chief who donated the land that Pocatello uses for the Railroad. The city is situated on the Portneuf River that converges with the Snake River at the American Falls Reservoir, a little north of Pocatello.
The city was established in 1889 and is also labeled “The Gateway to the Northwest” because settlers, pioneers, and gold miners traveling the Oregon Trail, passed just south of the city, through the Portneuf Gap. Soon after, freight lines and the railroad followed, and the town became an important transportation hub and trade center.
Nowadays, Pocatello keeps up its tradition of offering state-of-the-art rail, ground, and air transportation, as the town is located at the intersection of Interstates 15 and 86. The town provides unlimited access to the latest technology and telecommunications services and is home to several high-tech companies.
Forbes Magazine has identified Pocatello one of America’s “Best Small Place for Business” for six consecutive years. Additionally, the town has been recognized as one of best small towns to raise a family or to retire by many leading studies. On top of that is Pocatello within driving distance of some of the finest recreational opportunities America’s West offers. The town boasts a few great museums where children, adults, and families can get an in-depth knowledge of the natural history and the natural wonders of the state of Idaho.
