Several programs have been approved for Region 7 of GO Northern Virginia
This project will build upon Northern Virginia’s existing computer services and cybersecurity clusters to create a workforce system that effectively attracts, prepares, and retains qualified candidates to fill high demand technology jobs in several targeted, high paying occupational areas: programming and software development; data and data warehousing; and networking and cybersecurity.
This initiative is a combination of career pathway assistance, incumbent worker training, upskilling, on-the-job training and credentialing activities aimed to support computer services industry workers in newly located or newly established firms in Northern Virginia.
Northern Virginia Community College in collaboration with Micron Technology, U.S. Army’s Night Vision and Sensors Directorate, and BAE Systems presented this project to create a state-of-the-art engineering technology “Fabrication Laboratory” in Northern Virginia. This project will help create high-paying engineering jobs by leveraging established internship programs at Micron Technology and BAE Systems as well as the existing SySTEMic curriculum at Northern Virginia Community College
