Adult Basic Education (ABE)

ABE courses are available for adults who are at least 18 years of age and wish to improve their reading, writing, and math skills. ABE students perform below the high school level on placement tests. Adult Basic Education courses are designed to prepare students to move into the Adult High School Diploma (AHSD) or High School Equivalency (GED) programs.

These free courses are held at Durham Tech’s Main Campus, the Orange County Campus, and other sites throughout Durham and Orange counties. (All new students at the Orange County Campus, Chapel Hill Skills Development Center, and other Orange County locations must take a Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) and complete a brief orientation prior to registering for courses.)
