Credentials to Careers

The regional Department of Labor - NOVA Credentials to Careers initiative is a partnership between Northern Virginia Community College, nonprofit workforce development organizations, and local IT employers to provide high performing education and training programs leading to credentials and a career in IT for TAA impacted workers and other adult workers (unemployed or underemployed, low-wage, dislocated, military or veteran).

Led by a large regional cluster of Information Technology (IT) contractors, Northern Virginia’s employers have a massive demand for skilled IT professionals that exceeds the current IT talent workforce. To meet the demand for educated and prepared employees, the Department of Labor - NOVA Credentials to Careers Consortium has come together to build the gateway of IT and STEM careers.

About Us

This effort was fully funded by the Department of Labor, Education and Training Administration, TAACCCT Grant #TC-23776-12-60-A-51, which is a $12.3 million grant. This is an equal opportunity program; auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
