Virginia Rebrands Workforce Training Program

The Workforce Credential Grant program will now be called FastForward: Credentials for A Career that Matters.

Virginia's community colleges will launch a new outreach campaign meant to attract people to short-term training programs that will prepare them for high-demand career opportunities, Elevate Virginia announced this week. And the Workforce Credential Grant program created in March 2016 after state leaders agreed to create a workforce training program for specific industry certifications that met the needs of businesses in each region of the state, is being rebranded as FastForward: Credentials for A Career that Matters.

In one year, 2,173 credentials were awarded through the program. Credentials are available in logistics/transportation, health care, welding and manufacturing, skilled trades, and information technology.

The outreach campaign is focused on these messages:

  • These training programs can change your future in weeks or months, not semesters or years.
  • Acquiring more skills leads to more opportunity in today's workplace.
  • These training programs are the most affordable, attainable higher education option.
  • FastForward Career Coaches are here to help you when real life happens.
