We’re helping get Virginians back to work.
Over one million Virginians have experienced employment disruption, including unemployment, due to Covid-19. VA Ready’s goal is to reward Virginians who seize the moment and commit themselves to training for in-demand jobs. We’ve partnered with businesses across Virginia and Virginia’s Community Colleges and the FastForward Workforce Credential Program as well as Sentara College of Health Sciences to equip them with the skills needed for sustainable jobs in high-growth sectors.
WAS YOUR EMPLOYMENT DISRUPTED DUE TO THE COVID PANDEMIC? DO YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT?
How about getting retrained in a rigorous 6 to 12 week credential program for an in-demand job in a high-growth sector? If you are willing to take the challenge, you could get a new job in technology, healthcare, manufacturing, or skilled trades. You can receive tuition grants from FastForward and earn a $1,000 Credential Achievement Award from VA Ready when you achieve your training credential.
