      Thank you for your inquiry. You can enroll in the PCT classes, however you would need to have your GED in order to take the National PCT exam.

      Would you like to visit the school for a tour of the program?

      Lily,
      Good afternoon. You can for sure enroll in the PCT course, you would need to wait until you had completed your GED in order to take the National Exam. We are having an open house tomorrow, and the application fee will be $25 instead of $100. Would you like to come by the school for a tour of the program?
