Registration is now open for the PluggedInVA (PIVA) Industrial Construction Trades Program, which is designed to prepare adults for careers in construction jobs.
The PluggedInVA (PIVA) Industrial Construction Trades Program, which is a partnership between The Regional Adult & Career Education Program of Lee, Scott, Wise and Norton Public Schools, Brock, TEC Industrial, Mountain Empire Community College and the Southwest Virginia Workforce Development Board, is set to begin later this year. Those interested in registering for the 14-week training program should do so as quickly as possible. Space is limited.
Upon successful completion of the free intensive training, adult learners will have a shot at full-time construction jobs — benefits included — with major local employers such as Brock and TEC Industries.
The majority of the graduates of the PIVA program offered earlier this year were able to go on and secure full-time jobs.
For more details or to register, call Amy Statzer at (276) 386-2433 or (844) 697-2231.
The Regional Adult & Career Education Program also offers free adult education classes throughout the region to prepare students for the GED Exam and to become career and college ready. Class schedules, directions to class sites and email addresses for instructors may be found on the website at www.MyRACE1.org.
These are free services of the public school divisions of Lee, Scott and Wise counties and the city of Norton.
