UTILIZING FAST FORWARD PROGRAM (Previously Workforce Credential Grant (WCG) Funds)
The Fast Forward program is a continuation of the Workforce Credential Grant (WCG) that was launched in 2017 to ensure that workforce credentials are accessible and affordable for Virginians seeking the skills they need to obtain good‐paying jobs in high‐demand fields. In late 2017, the program exhausted all of its funds for training and development, causing a brief hiatus in its availability. Those funds have now been replenished and will be available beginning July 1, 2018. Virginia residents seeking educational opportunities through the Virginia Community College network will automatically qualify for these grant funds upon registration for a Fast Forward-eligible course.
The grant is applicable to Asphalt Field I & II, Asphalt Plant I & II, Slurry Surfacing and Surface Treatment
Please note: if you are NOT a Virginia resident but still want to sign up for one of VECAT’s Asphalt courses, you will need to contact Germanna to complete a required Opt-Out form.
