This post includes an overview of all GED® prep class locations and testing sites in the Yakima area. Washington State is using the GED exam for the state’s HSE (high school equivalency) testing program.
GED testing can be done online and at state-certified GED test facilities.
The HSE program offers adults who couldn’t graduate high school another chance to earn an equivalent degree.
HSE testing takes place at a similar level as what HS seniors are expected to master upon graduation.
The GED exam comes with four separate tests (modules) in the subject fields of Math, Social Studies. Science and Literacy.
You can take one GED module at a time. There’s no need to sit for the entire GED exam in one testing session.
Online GED testing was, until recently, never possible. Personal appearance at an official GED test site was required.
But that had now changed with the arrival of the online proctored GED exam. For more information, go to the bottom of this page.

Introducing the online GED test
In the past, there never was an option to deal with the four GED modules on the internet. To acquire your GED degree, you always had to show up, in-person, at one of Washington State’s official GED testing centers.
Now, all of that has changed with the launch of an online proctored option to take the GED exam. Qualifying GED students who opt for online testing will see that an online proctor will be monitoring their activities to check if they act in accordance with the rules. For more detailed information, please visit Introducing the online GED test.
