Currently taking GED courses, how do I list this on a resume?

I am helping my husband make a resume, and I am not sure how or if I should list an education section. He dropped out of school about 5 years ago in the 11th grade, and is currently taking GED courses (he just started). He expects to be finished with it in about 6 months. He is going to be applying for warehouse/forklift operator jobs that, for the most part, don't require a diploma/GED. He also has 1 year of relevant work experience and several years of other experience. Should I omit the education section? If not, what's the best way to list a GED in progress?

You always list things that you are 'improving'. If it isn't a requirement, there will be applicants that don't have a HS completion. If he has one, or is getting one, makes him look better. (If he had a Master's Degree he was working on, my advice might be different.) LOL... More

i got a GED. my school was a continuation school. they said to just list it as you graduated. not sure if thats kosher though, but hardly ever does anyone want to see a diploma. almost never. from a college ya, but not from high school. you should probably just leave it out for now... More

Just lie, they will check his previous employer before they would ever check school. Just list the High school name and years attended. Don't give them the excuse to throw out his application. Let him tell them about pursuing his GED in the interview IF they even ask.
