2014 GED Testing Pending

We do not yet have open dates for giving the 2014 GED test and are not sure if we will be testing in Grenada before February. They have not yet given us needed transcript/credential printing access for the 2014 test. The State office sent an email on Jan. 7th that it may be a couple of weeks before we receive additional training for some of that with GEDTS.

Grenada Adult Education Center's Pearson VUE Authorized GED Testing Center is now set up as a public site. If you are wanting to test and have not yet set up your account at, go ahead and do that right away. There are several steps that you will need to do to set up your account, activate it, and then complete your account demographics data. Only after that is all done can you try to schedule your testing here online through your account. You will have to come in person to take the test, but the scheduling is done online.

As soon as they finish getting us set up for the new test, we will post an update on the blog and send out a tweet from @GrenadaAEC. At that point, test-takers could log into their account to schedule local testing. We are sorry if the delay is causing any inconvenience, but this is a widespread problem that the GED Testing Service is working to resolve. Thank you for your patience.
