Many adults (persons 19 years of age or older) have earned high school equivalency certificates based on performance on the GED Tests. In Manitoba, GED testing is available in English and Français.

Since GED testing was introduced in Manitoba, over 43,000 adults have achieved GED certificates.

GED certificates are recognized by most employers and some community colleges and universities. They may be accepted for employment, apprenticeship admission, and other training programs.

Note: The GED certificate is not a high school diploma; rather, it certifies that the holder has a general educational background relative to that of the average high school graduate.

Manitoba only offers the paper-based version of the 2002 Test series and does not offer computer-based testing at this time.
