Kuepa Becomes First Latin-American Institution Recognized as a GED Authorized Provider to Offer GED Exams in Mexico Schools

MEXICO CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Latin America’s premier vocational training company Kuepa is announcing
a partnership with the GED Testing Service to become the first Latin
American institution recognized as a GED Authorized Provider to offer
the GED exams in Mexico locations.

More than 200,000 students around the world take the GED test every year
in order to earn their high school equivalency credential. The test is
available in both English and Spanish, and represents an important
opportunity for Latin American students seeking an internationally
recognized high school diploma.

This agreement helps Kuepa in its continuous effort to provide
educational tools and skills for Latin American students. An
international recognition, certificate, or degree can be the passport to
formal employment at a sustainable wage, with opportunities for further
growth.

“This is a great opportunity for our students to earn an internationally
recognized high school equivalency degree,” states Gonzalo Pulit,
co-founder of Kuepa. “We can now work with our students through the
whole process of studying for the GED test through our online and
in-person courses, getting their certification, and finding the job they
want at the salary they want.”

Online and in-person GED test preparation courses are in extremely high
demand among adult learners in Mexico; a demand that continues to grow
in proportion to the rising drop-out rates throughout the region.
Because of its international recognition, students who earn their GED
increase their employment opportunities in the local and global
marketplace.

“This is an exciting partnership,” says Nick Laul, Vice President for
the GED Testing Service. “This not only increases the presence and
availability of the GED program in Latin American, but it will also have
a real and tangible impact on adults who want to improve their job
prospects and earning potential.”
