Central Virginia Community College's Workforce Solutions & Community Education division addresses
the educational needs of employers, job seekers, and the community to enhance economic prosperity and
the quality of life throughout Region 2000. Program areas include:
CVCC Workforce Solutions offers a wide variety of customized credit and non-credit business, industrial,
trades, human resource, leadership, health technology and computer courses to fill the needs of Region
2000 companies, organizations and governments. Our programs are individually designed to meet your
specific needs and can be conducted at your business location or at any of our training facilities
using any schedule that meets your company's needs. Training programs can start and stop anytime without
following the traditional semester schedule of regular class offerings. Because we are a non-profit
organization meeting a public need, you will likely find our programming to be very competitively priced.
Workforce Solutions provides continuing education to meet a wide variety of certification, credentialing
and training needs for professionals and organizations. We are able to quickly develop and coordinate
programming to meet the continuing education needs of any group. Workforce Solutions also coordinates
the area's Apprenticeship program for individuals who seek to develop their skills on the job.
Beyond working with individual companies and professional development groups, CVCC 's Workforce Solutions
Division is an active partner in the Region's efforts to develop career pathways to meet the future needs
of area employers. Programs include STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) Summer Academies
for area youth, the College's annual Technology Fair for high school students, and summer internship
opportunities for local high school students to gain experience in the field of nuclear technology.
Workforce Solutions stands ready to help area employers, and new employers coming to the area, with
assessing workforce needs and incumbent worker skills. A variety of assessment tools are available to
meet these needs. Services to employers who are seeking well-qualified employees are also available
through the CVCC Career Connection and the Region 2000 Workforce Services Center. Consulting services
that provide businesses access to a wide variety of qualified academic professionals can also be
arranged to help move your business forward.
Student & Alumni Career Connections
Career Connections, CVCC's campus career center, provides resume writing, job seeking and interviewing
assistance to current students and alumni. Current job listings are available, and businesses often
visit campus to recruit employees. Career Connections is located in Amherst Hall.
Community Education offers a wide variety of short-term, non-credit, personal interest classes to
provide lifelong learning and enrich the Region 2000 community. Taught by local subject matter experts,
