This page is an overview of all GED test centers and prep class locations in and around Brattleboro. Vermont uses the entirely computer-based GED exam for high school equivalency testing.
In most states that use the GED exam, testing can be done online (the online proctored GED test) or at an official GED test facility.
The GED® exam is for persons who did not graduate high school and offers them the opportunity to earn an equivalent degree. The exam measures skills and knowledge at a similar level as that may be expected of high school grads.
The GED exam contains four individual modules or subtests that may be completed one (or more) at a time.
The subject areas cover subject matter in these academic fields:
- Social Studies
- Literacy (Reasoning through Language Arts)
- Math (Mathematical Reasoning)
So, until recently, online testing was not possible. You were required to come to a state-designated testing center to take the four subtests in person.
This has now changed, however, with the launch of an online proctored GED testing option. Read more below at the bottom of this page.

Launching the Online GED Exam
Until recently, taking the GED via the Internet was no option, but in most states, you can take the exam at an official GED testing facility or online. Online GED testing is not available in New York and South Carolina.
So in most states, that has changed with the launch of an online option to take the four GED subtests in an online format. A proctor monitors online if you do everything in accordance with some pretty strict regulations. To read more about this development, go to ‘The online GED test.’

Preparing for the GED
People planning on taking the GED tests need to have the following things in mind: they need to learn top-of-the-line strategies to be used to get to that big day or days they are waiting for. A lot of people do not like to take the GED test just out of fear of failure – they also complain about not having enough money or time to dedicate to this process.
However, they must also understand one simple fact: the more they spend time without the diploma, the more financially challenged they will be. They need to make time to take these classes in order for them to get a career or to move forward – they need to grasp this fact once and for all. Accomplishing the GED (General Education Development) diploma is something important to show to your children in the future.
There’s no need to finish the 4 GED modules in one take. The exam is modular, meaning you can take the four subtests one at a time. Please note that online obtained documents (fake diplomas) are totally worthless and will surely not be accepted by schools and employers. Online testing has become a reality, but don’t get involved in fraudulent activities, and don’t waste your money.
