“This wouldn’t have happened without a tremendous amount of teamwork,” said Governor Ralph Northam. “The business community has been a large part of this as well knowing that we need to train a large workforce. This is a win-win. It’s a win for our community colleges, our businesses and for the Commonwealth.”
It’s a limited-time offer, and Virginians are wasting no time signing up for a new grants program that would pay for targeted workforce training courses at community colleges across the commonwealth
“We’re thrilled that the legislature continues to recognize the value of this investment in the commonwealth’s future,” said DuBois. “FastForward not only helps Virginians train for family-supporting careers, it also helps Virginia employers secure the skilled workers they need for our 21st century economy. Everybody benefits when we have a more skilled workforce.”
This announcement is part of an aggressive move to expand the MT1 certificate program into community colleges and educational partners across the United States.
