College Offering GED Testing at Extension Sites

Peninsula College will offer the General Educational Development (GED) Test at its Forks Extension Site on November 29, and at its Port Townsend Extension Site on Thursday, December 6.

The Forks Extension site is located at 71 South Forks Avenue and the Port Townsend Extension Site is located at Fort Worden State Park, 298 Battery Way.

Successful completion of the GED Test provides individuals with the opportunity to advance to their next goal―college, technical training, military, or a better job.
