Become a VA Ready Scholar and Receive a $1,000 Credential Achievement Award
We are helping to retrain Virginians for In-demand Jobs.
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.
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR SKILLS TO WORK IN GROWTH INDUSTRIES THAT ARE HIRING SKILLED WORKERS? ARE YOU READY 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 or skilled trades. All eligible applicants will receive a one-time $1,000 Credential Achievement Award upon completion of their course as well as access to skill-based workshops and career resources.
Before you start your VA Ready sign up application you will need to have your community college class registration email in order to complete your application as final. You will need to upload it to your eligibility questionnaire. This email states your class name, start date, and end date.
