Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE)

Learn at your own pace in your community,

and the best part is it's all FREE!

 

 

ABLE is more than a GED®.  To get a good job today, you need basic academic and workforce skills,

and access to affordable, high-quality higher education options.

This could be your first step to not only a job, but a great career.
 
You can even receive training for non-traditional jobs. 
Men can enroll in programs such as Dental Assisting, Medical Assisting, STNA, or Business Office Technologies,
and women can enroll in Welding Technology, Maintenance Training, or HVAC.

 

 

ABLE classes are free to anyone 18 and older.

Sixteen and 17 year-old students must be officially withdrawn from school.

Improve your reading, math, writing or English skills, prepare for the GED® test.

Get ready to go to college or an adult certificate training program to get a better job.

Learn more about local practice centers.

 

 

Employers who have employees in need of skill enhancement for 21st century jobs

can send employees for ABLE workplace education.
