Workforce & Continuing Education FAQ

Will NOVA Workforce/Continuing Education/ACLI courses be offered in person or online?

Most NOVA Workforce courses will be offered in one of our approved distance-learning formats. The majority of courses will use synchronous online delivery - class meets at a set day and time online with an instructor - via Zoom.

Certain courses require hands-on instruction, which will take place on campus under safety and physical distancing guidelines.

For more information on courses, visit MyWorkforce nvcc.augusoft.net.

I am having problems accessing my Workforce course online.

Please email NOVAWorkforceAnswers@nvcc.edu, if you did not receive your class Zoom invite or need additional help with the online classroom.
You can access CANVAS Student Resources and Zoom help guides, or you can reach the IT Help Desk online or by phone.
