As a result, Pearson Vue testing will increase the number of testing workstations from two to three. We encourage all testers to learn about remote “at-home” testing as an alternative to testing at our center.
Find more information on Pearson Vue’s remote option for testing called “OnVue” here: https://home.pearsonvue.com/Test-takers/OnVUE-online-proctoring.aspx.
ESL and GED (HSE) classes at the Durango and Cortez sites may move to a hybrid model with remote options.

Our Mission: Durango Adult Education Center, a caring learning community, fills educational gaps by providing the skills and knowledge necessary for livable wage careers, post-secondary education, and social and economic mobility.
The Durango Adult Education Center (DAEC) provides affordable and effective education to young adults (17) and adults over 18. We equip individuals with the knowledge they need to lead productive lives, allowing them to better contribute to the local economy and the overall health of our communities. The Durango Adult Education Center protects the rights of individuals with disabilities by providing equal access to programs and services. For more information, contact the Accessible Design Coordinator at email@example.com or 970.385.4354 X14. Learn more about why you should study with the DAEC.
Our students come from diverse educational and economic backgrounds and attend the DAEC because we offer:
• Teachers who personally invest in the success of each student
• Small, caring learning environments with updated technology
• A flexible, student-oriented class schedule that adapts to most needs
• Extensive support services including onsite childcare, snacks, career advising,and scholarships
Nearly 300 students each year attend classes at the DAEC. Our success is directly attributed to the many donors who recognize the importance of education in our community and our volunteers who help tutor, teach and assist with office duties and more.
