We’re helping get Virginians back to work.

VA Ready’s goal is to reward out of work Virginans who commit themselves to training for in-demand jobs so they can get back to work quickly. We’ve partnered with businesses across Virginia and Virginia’s Community Colleges and the FastForward Workforce Credential Program to equip them with the skills needed for in-demand jobs in high-growth sectors.

Are You Recently Unemployed? And 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 award from VA Ready when you achieve your training credential.
