Anyone wanting to get their General Equivalency Diploma, or GED, is urged to attend the next orientation session coming up in mid December at Lewis & Clark Community College. There is one program that allows students to take automotive, computer skills or welding classes while earning their GED, and others that concentrate on the health sciences.
Those are among the "Bridge" programs that are getting students from GED programs directly into a career field, according to program spokesman Kim Schweiker.
Many students in the GED program are adults who need to improve their basic literacy and math skills, improve their oral and written English, and prepare for college or vocational training. The next orientation will be December 16-18. To find out more, call 468-4141.
