Get your High School Equivalency Diploma


Computer based GED testing is now offered at Lakeland College, Lloydminster Campus

A GED opens the door to:
  • go on to higher education
  • get a job or promotion
  • achieve personal goals.   
Technological advances in the workplace have made a high school diploma essential for almost all workers. If you want a job or or a better job, you will need to show  your employer that you have at least a high school education.
 
If you are comfortable reading newspapers and you can add, subtract, multiply, and divide without a calculator, you're halfway there!
