Two education and workforce credential tests will be free to eligible Kentuckians on a first-come, first-served basis through June 30 or until funds are expended, according to a news release.
Free GED tests and assessments to earn a National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) are sponsored by Kentucky Adult Education.

GED testing
The GED tests provide adults who did not finish high school with the opportunity to certify their attainment of high school-level academic knowledge and skills. Free GED classes are available through local adult education programs in all 120 Kentucky counties.

NCRC testing
The NCRC is a national certification that indicates work readiness by administering three WorkKeys assessments: applied mathematics, locating information and reading for information. These specific workplace skills are needed in 77 percent of all jobs profiled for WorkKeys testing.
Eligible individuals can obtain free NCRC testing through local One-Stop Career Centers and adult education centers. This offer is time and space limited, so those interested should schedule through one of these testing locations early and should request a “free NCRC.”
Anderson County residents interested in taking advantage of free classes and free GED and NCRC testing should contact the Anderson County Adult Learning Center, 219 East Woodford St. Hours are 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Monday through Thursday. The BCTC Lawrenceburg campus’ hours are noon to 4 p.m. on Monday through Friday. Call 839-3754 for more information.
