FAIRMONT — The Marion County Adult and Community Education Center is preparing for the new GED test series and participating in a state pilot project that reflects the new content standards.

The MCACEC, located in Fairmont, offers preparation for the General Educational Development (GED) high school equivalency test, career readiness preparation and computer classes. Electrical technology is a tuition-based program, but all of the center’s other services are free, said principal Donna Metz.
