Registration nears for free GED Boot Camps

Staff Reports

Registration is nearing for GED Boot Camps scheduled for Western Nevada College’s Carson City and Douglas campuses.

The free GED Boot Camps provide intensive instruction and preparation for students interested in passing a GED or high school equivalency exam.

“The GED boot camp covers all sections of the official GED exam: science, social studies, reading, writing and math,” said Angela Andrade-Holt, WNC Adult Literacy & Language program coordinator. “Students also receive test-taking skills and a week of review prior to the administration of the official exam.”

In Douglas, participants must attend one of two registration sessions in order to enroll. Registration will be offered at 6 p.m. Sept. 24 or Sept. 26 in a room to be determined on campus.

Classes begin Sept. 30 and will be held from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday until Nov. 14.

In Carson City, interested students will need to choose between registration sessions offered at 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Thursday in the Adult Literacy & Language office in Bristlecone Building Room 340.

The boot camp launches Sept. 16 and will be held from 9 to 12:30 p.m. and 6 to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday until Oct. 24.

The boot camps are open to people age 18 and older; 16- and 17-year-olds are eligible if they meet Nevada state requirements for high school withdrawal.

The official GED exam is administered the week after classes culminate.
