NIC Adult Basic Education/GED® program to hold open houses

Advisors will be on hand to answer all questions about the North Idaho College Adult Basic Education/GED® program in Post Falls on Sept. 30 and Coeur d’Alene on Oct. 1.

The two open houses will give anyone interested the information they need to complete their GED® and take the first step toward college and career readiness.

The Post Falls open house will be held at the North Idaho College Workforce Training Center from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 30.

The Coeur d’Alene open house will be held at the Hedlund Building Room 204 on NIC’s main campus from noon to 2 p.m. as well as from 4 to 7 p.m.

“Adult Basic Education – or, ABE, is a federally funded program that provides instruction to adults who fall below a 12-grade level in reading, writing, and math. It prepares students, who have a high school diploma, for college and career success,” said Laura Umthun, NIC ABE instructor. “And, for those who need to attain a GED®, we can help with that also.”

Adult learners seeking further training and education are often disappointed because they do not meet the qualifications to enter credit-bearing courses. ABE classes are designed to provide adult learners with the best standards-based and technology-enhanced testing available to ensure their success as they pursue their educational goals.

Tuition and learning materials are provided at no cost, and classes are conveniently offered in the mornings, afternoons, and evenings. Upon enrollment, students are given an assessment test and then registered for classes that fit their educational level. ABE instruction opens the doors to better employment and further professional technical or academic education.
