SOMERVILLE, NJ – Residents of Somerset and Hunterdon counties who want to complete their high school diploma or further their personal career goals can use different programs available through the Greater Raritan Workforce Development Board (GRWDB) and its partners.

The Workforce Learning Link, with locations in Flemington and Somerville, provides free assistance to eligible New Jersey residents 16 years of age and older who are not enrolled in school and are legally able to work in the U.S. Program participants can:

  • Get assistance with high school diploma attainment, including help with studying and testing.
  • Upgrade their skills to enter an occupational training or post-secondary education program.
  • Enhance their basic literacy and computer skills to obtain or maintain employment.

Learning Link program participants also can be connected to a variety of career-related training and workforce-readiness programs available through the GRWDB and its partners.

GED Testing Sites
Residents who have a recent “Green” GED Ready Score and need a site to take the Online GED TEST can now make an appointment to take their test in a quiet, private space using computers supplied by the GRWDB and its partners.

The testing sites are connected to the Workforce Learning Link locations in Somerset and Hunterdon Counties and are available by appointment from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. The locations are at 8 Bartles Corner Road, Suite 205, Flemington, in Hunterdon County and at 27 Warren St., second floor, Somerville, in Somerset County.

For more information or assistance with starting the appointment process, contact adultliteracy@hunterdonesc.org.

The new GED community testing initiative is supported by the GRWDB, which provided funding in 2023 for the purchase of a new testing computer in Flemington. In Somerville, the computers were upgraded using other GRWDB funding.
