You may be surprised at the number of good jobs available with a GED that pay more than $37,690 – the average median wage of all occupations, reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2017. Everyone has skills that make them an asset in the workforce, even without postsecondary education. Earning your GED can open doors to careers that match your interests and abilities. Plus, you won’t be among those struggling to pay off the $1.3 trillion college student loan debt, as estimated by the Pew Research Center.

Business and Sales

There are many possible jobs in the business sector that you may get with your GED. These jobs require leadership, communication and organizational skills. An outgoing, persuasive personality is helpful for a career in sales. Employers look for applicants who are goal oriented and driven to succeed in the world of business.

Example:

  • Insurance sales: $49,710 median annual salary (projected job growth 9.9 percent)
  • Wholesale and manufacturing sales: $56,970 median annual salary (projected job growth 5.2 percent)
  • Real estate broker: $56,730 median annual salary (projected job growth 4.9 percent)
  • Real estate agent: $45,990 median annual salary (projected job growth 5.8 percent)
  • Food service manager: $52,030 median annual salary (projected job growth 9 percent)

Office and Clerical

You can earn a good living with a GED even if you are not big and burly or skilled in the trades. There are many such jobs in nice, climate controlled offices that don’t require heavy lifting or exposure to workplace hazards, encountered in some blue collar jobs.

Example:

  • Brokerage clerk: $49,800 median annual salary (projected job growth 5 percent)
  • Cargo and freight agent: $41,820 median annual salary (projected job growth 10.4 percent)
  • Insurance claims clerk: $38,790 median annual salary (projected job growth 11.1 percent)
  • Title and abstract examiner: $48,850 median annual salary (projected job growth 4.4 percent)
  • Claims adjuster and investigator: $64,900 median annual salary (projected job growth -1.4 percent)

Health and Human Services

The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a bright future for workers in health and human services, with jobs growing faster than average due to the large aging population needing assistance. Although some jobs require many years of college, there are also interesting positions in these fields that only require a high school diploma or the equivalent (GED).

Example:

  • Community health worker: $38,370 median annual salary (projected job growth 18.1 percent)
  • Dispensing optician: $36,250 median annual salary (projected job growth 15 percent)
  • Hearing aid specialist: $54,860 median annual salary (projected job growth 19.5 percent)
  • Fitness trainer: $39,210 median annual salary (projected job growth 10.1 percent)
  • Occupational health and safety technician: $49,960 median annual salary (projected job growth 10.1 percent)

Skilled Trades

If you have mechanical aptitude and like working with your hands, you may enjoy a career in one of the many skilled trades that are in high demand. These jobs typically pay much higher than average, but also involve a paid apprenticeship or intensive on-the-job training before you reach your earning potential. If you have natural talent in the trades, the work can be especially fulfilling.

Example:

  • Electrician: $54,110 median annual salary (projected job growth 8.9 percent)
  • Plumber/pipefitter: $52,590 median annual salary (projected job growth 15.6 percent)
  • Carpenter: $45,170 median annual salary (projected job growth 8.2 percent)
  • Brick mason: $49,770 median annual salary (projected job growth 10.3 percent)
  • Sheet metal worker: $47,990 median annual salary (projected job growth 8.7 percent)

Industrial and Plant Operations

A GED qualifies you for many high-paying jobs in the industrial sector and in plant operations. For instance, you could potentially make more than $93,370 per year as a nuclear power reactor operator, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. An apprenticeship or on-the-job training is often required to learn safety measures.

  • be a resident of Connecticut;
  • be 17 years of age or older and officially withdrawn from school for at least six months;
  • not be enrolled in school; and
  • not have graduated from high school

Individuals whose high school diplomas are from unaccredited high schools or individuals, who have secondary school diplomas from countries outside the United States and Canada, are eligible to take the GED ® test if they meet all other eligibility requirements.

Test-Takers 17 and 18 years old

Connecticut General Statutes, Section 10-5(a) requires that individuals who are either 17 or 18 years of age at the time of GED® registration must submit documentation that they have been officially withdrawn from a Connecticut school for at least six months; 17 year olds must submit a withdrawal form with a parent or guardian signature. Individuals who are 18 years of age may submit, in lieu of a withdrawal form, a letter from the last high school attended stating that the class they entered ninth grade (or would have entered if never enrolled) has already graduated.

Test-Takers who are Homeschooled

Individuals between the ages of 17 and 18 years of age who are homeschooled and wish to take the GED® test must have a parent/guardian obtain documentation from the local school district acknowledging their original intent to homeschool.

Once the parent/guardian obtains the evidence, they need to contact the State Department of Education GED® office to request a Homeschooling Attestation Form signed by the Connecticut GED® Administrator.

Since homeschooled students cannot procure a school withdrawal form, they can use this attestation form to register for the GED® test.

Read on to learn how to get a copy of your GED!

Your GED: One of the Most Important Documents You’ll Ever Own

Your GED is proof that you have mastered skills that are crucial to your success. It is commonly accepted by most colleges and universities, as well as by most employers to verify your performance ability.

According to the American Council on Education, the GED has opened the door to better opportunities for over 18 million graduates since 1942. Last year alone, 800,000 people sat for their GED exam.

Taking your GED usually requires registration, testing at an approved facility, and often requires test takers to pay a fee. Many students spend hours studying and preparing to take this exam.

Once you acquire your GED certificate, you are eligible for a long list of advantages that would not be possible without it. It can impact your life in multiple ways and offer benefits for many years to come. It might be the thing that helps you get into college or land a job.

Most people only receive one copy via mail once they have completed the test. Due to a wide range of possibilities, hanging on to the original document for a lifetime may not be plausible.

If you’re in need of a replacement GED certificate, don’t worry.

Just follow the steps outlined below to have a replacement GED issued in no time.

How to Get a Copy of Your GED in 5 Easy Steps

A replacement GED certificate can be requested by the test-taker themselves or by another person who has gotten their consent.

There is no standardized process for accessing a copy of the GED. But, it’s usually fairly simple to obtain if you know the steps to take.

1. Identify the State and Institution Where the Exam Was Taken

Each state has their own set of records for everyone who has obtained a General Education Diploma in that particular state. The individual states also typically have a protocol established for certificate-holders to request a copy of their GED.

The first thing you will need to know is where the test was taken. Once you identify the location of the exam, the rest of the steps will come rather easy.

2. Contact the Institution That Administered the Exam

Depending on who administered your GED test, they may keep your information on file and might be able to furnish your request themselves.

If they cannot, however, they are still likely to have the information you will need to get a copy of your certificate.

Call the GED testing department and ask for advice to obtain a new copy of your GED certificate. Explain that you took the test at their facility and if possible, you may want to have the date that you passed on hand when you call.

If they don’t have access to the information that you need they can direct you to your state’s website.

3. Refer to Your State’s Department of Education Agency Website

If you are unable to get the information that you need, you can search online for the link on the Department of Education listing page.

Find your state agency’s link and check their site to determine the steps necessary for requesting records.

4. Complete the Form Specified By Your State

Most of the states will require you to fill out a form to make an official request for your GED. Some may provide an online link, while others might require you to print the document to fill out and send via snail mail.

You will need to provide information regarding the identity of the test-taker. This may include the following:

  • Full name and all past last names
  • Date of birth
  • Social Security number (some require only last four digits)
  • Date of records request
  • Signature of GED holder
  • Email or mailing address where verification is to be sent

It’s a good idea to collect all of the information beforehand so that you can easily fill in whatever info is required.

5. Submit Your Request Form to the Appropriate State Agency Address

Once you have completed the form, check over it to ensure that no section has been overlooked and it doesn’t contain errors.

If you’re sure that the form is prepared according to the instructions provided, then it’s ready to submit. You may be able to submit the form online or your state might require that it be mailed to the address provided.

Follow the instructions to submit your form, either online or through the postal service.

Upon receipt, they will process your request and issue your GED within the specified time frame.

Some states offer turnaround times as short as 24 hours, while others might ask that you allow 4 to 6 weeks. This information can be found on your state agency’s website or on the form itself.

How to get a ged

Have you ever wondered how to get a fake GED that looks real? A certificate that is a close replica of the authentic and hardly separable from a legitimate one?

Also, there are several reasons why you may want to buy a GED online; however, your goal may be like every other person out there.

It could be to improve your GED scores in certain subjects, have a backup in case the original copy gets missing, or create a replacement to a lost copy.

In the end, the reason is best known to you, but walk with us and we’ll show you how to get a fake GED that looks real.

What is a GED Certificate?

General Educational Development (GED) is a test in five subjects undertaken by adults who do not have a high school diploma.

When these five subjects (including Language Arts/Reading, Language Arts/Writing, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics) are passed, it certifies that the test taker has acquired the United States or Canadian high school-level academic skills.

As such, the examinee is issued a GED certificate or State High School Diploma by the State, province, or territory where they live.

The certificate becomes a piece of evidence that they have acquired aptitude as well as high school-level knowledge and skills.

How to Get a Fake GED

One of the best ways to get a fake GED is to go through a professional.

A professional diploma maker will offer a variety of design services, including a wide range of designs and templates. Whether you’re looking for a fake diploma from a specific school or a diploma that reflects a specific type of degree, a professional can help.

Here at Diploma Makers, we offer something we call the Perfect Match, which is the closest you can get to the authentic diploma issued by your school. We match everything from the paper, font, seals, and more as closely as possible so it resembles the real deal.

You can try to create your own fake GED diploma, but it requires skill and attention to detail in order to create a certificate that resembles the real thing.

Here are a few things to consider:

  • Does the fake GED generator use real diploma paper for its certificates?
  • Will you be provided with a transcript that has been printed on real security paper?
  • Does the service provider rely on an advanced machine to print its certificates?
  • Can you be assured of the replica of the authentic bearing the same gold seals, and symbols of the original?
  • Is there a 24-hour turn around time or less to ensure that your certificate is delivered on time?
  • What are the customer reviews and recommendations for the fake GED generator you’re about to use?

After answering these questions, you can proceed to fill the fake GED Diploma form for free on the generator’s website.

You’ll be required to provide certain information that will be a part of the certificate, and this information includes:

  • Type of Degree
  • School Name
  • City, County and the State of School
  • School Address
  • Student’s Name on Diploma
  • Student’s Address while in School
  • Date of Graduation
  • Cumulative Grade Point Average
  • Student ID Number
  • Date of Birth
  • Transcripts Issued/Printed Date

What is a GED Certificate Used for?

Some of the uses of a GED certificate include:

1. To Apply for College:

A high school diploma or GED certificate is one of the requirements before you are granted admission into a college.

As such, it is important to have it even before you begin applying since all schools have the same policy of requesting a diploma before applicants are granted admission.

2. To Apply for a Job:

Even the least likable job with the lowest pay may require a high school diploma.

That is to say; you need the most basic level of education to get a job these days.

This, therefore, makes having a GED certificate essential.

Why Do You Need a Fake GED Certificate

Here are some reasons why you need a fake GED certificate:

1. As a Faster Means to Get a GED Certificate:

GED tests are rigorous ones all in a bid to determine the test taker’s level of knowledge and skill.

The latter would mean having a good knowledge of high school mathematics, science, social studies, amongst other courses.

What’s more, a GED candidate is also expected to have a performance that exceeds that 60% of the top graduating high school seniors.

As a result, the chances that an examinee may fail the test is high – We could go on and on, but you get the drift.

Buying a printable fake GED transcript online is much easier and faster, and also saves time.

What’s more, you get to determine your grades, courses, and the high school of attendance.

2. As a Replacement for a Lost Copy:

If you had a GED certificate and it was lost to theft, fire, etc. there’s no saying that you may need to resit for the test or hope that you can get a replacement on time.

It also means that there is no way to verify your identity using a GED since it is lost.

The simple way out is to get a fake GED that is a replica of the legitimate one.

Given that this certificate may just sit in your file, grace your wall, or be placed on the desk, there’s really no harm it can do.

While at it, you can then take the step to reapply for a certificate from the State and even if it takes weeks or months to be replaced, you’ll rest assured that you have a backup to fall back on.

Conclusion

Creating your own fake GED can be extremely challenging, so it may be best to consider contacting a professional diploma maker.

If you’re looking for a way to get a fake GED fast, consider taking a look at our sample work to discover just how detailed our work is here at Diploma Makers.

We pay close attention to the details so you don’t have to.

Did you know that more than 17 million people have taken the GED since it was first made available 60 years ago? The GED is short for General Educational Diploma and is an alternative to a high school diploma. It can be taken at any age and is a requirement for several different jobs.

The GED is a set of five tests: reading, writing, social studies, science, and mathematics. If that list of subjects is overwhelming to you, you’re not alone! Many people who take the GED test say it’s a grueling experience.

If you’re wondering how to get a GED without the stress, read on! We’ll be discussing five simple steps to getting your diploma!

  1. Understand the GED

The first step to getting a GED is understanding exactly what you’ll be tested on. The test is broken up into five different subjects that each have their own multiple-choice test. Social studies and reading sections also have essay responses.

There are time limits to each section and some breaks in between. Overall the test takes a grand total of seven hours!

  1. Prep For the GED

The most difficult part of the GED is getting ready for it. This means a combination of GED classes and practice tests. Sometimes hiring an additional tutor is also necessary.

It’s a good idea to take a practice test when you start prepping, so you understand where your weaknesses and strengths are and you can focus your efforts accordingly. In addition, GED courses will give you test-taking tips and an overview of the material you need to know.

  1. Register

Once you feel confident in the material, you can register for a GED test in your area. This gives you a target deadline for you to finish your studies.

If you need special accommodations, contact the testing center ahead of time as they do take time to set up.

  1. Take the Test

The most important part of how to earn a GED is taking the test! Eat a good breakfast and get a good night of sleep beforehand. Remember all the prep work that you did and remind yourself you got this!

After the test, results will be available in about a day, so you won’t have to wait for too long to find out how you did. If you passed, your diploma will be on the way!

  1. Fake It Till You Make It

If the previous steps sound like they take a lot of time and effort, you’re not wrong! The GED is a difficult test with a lot of prep work. It can take both time and money to pass the GED but if you need a degree to get a job, you’re at an impasse.
