Industry-recognized Credentials and Certifications


For employers, nothing can better guarantee that a new recruitment has the skills necessary to be productive than an industry certification. For the individual looking for a new position, nothing gives you a better chance of landing that job than having the required credential.

With many expanding companies in and around the Greater Richmond and Crater regions, and the Commonwealth, industry-recognized credentials and certifications are rapidly becoming more critical. The goal of the Virginia’s Community Colleges is to triple the number of industry credentials earned in order to meet business and employment demands.

CCWA offers many of these training programs. Different from an academic program, these short-term courses are delivered in a most timely format possible.
