A) MS WIN Job Center does not directly assist with earning a GED, but it provides referrals to Adult Basic Education & Literacy programs that offer GED instruction and testing. For example, the Hattiesburg WIN Job Center refers to the Pearl River Community College for GED classes. The Gulfport WIN Job Center offers GED classes through the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. The WIN Job Centers are funded by the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) and they also provide other services such as job placement, career planning, and training information.
These Adult Basic Education & Literacy programs will help you with:
- GED classes
- GED tutoring
- GED practice tests
- Financial assistance for GED testing
- Help with finding a GED testing center
I hope this information is helpful to you.
