Moody Airmen Go the Distance at CLEP-a-Thon

More than 200 Airmen participated in a free marathon-themed testing event at the annual CLEP-A-Thon, July 23-26, 2018, at Moody Air Force Base, Ga., where they pursued their higher educational and self-improvement goals.

Airmen took as many Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) and College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams as they could during the four-day period, with each passing score earning them college credit.

β€œThe CLEP-A-Thon is designed to draw people in to see how easy it is to do college testing and take classes,” said Darryl Gagne, 23d Force Support Squadron (FSS) education specialist. β€œIt gets their foot in the door, and once they start taking those baby steps, they start saying β€˜I can do this.’”
