The Saylor Foundation is pleased to announce a new workforce development collaboration with the medical program of PluggedInVA (PIVA). The program will take Virginia students through seven Saylor.org professional development certificate courses as part of a larger program leading the student to a GED, twelve college credits, Microsoft Digital Literacy Certification, and career readiness training in the healthcare fields.
Adults 18 years and older who have not yet earned a GED or high school diploma and who live in the following Virginia localities can participate: Alexandria, Arlington County, Fairfax County, Loudoun County, and Prince William County. Program classes are held at Alexandria’s Adult Learning Center and taught by college professors both onsite and online.
Although our usual focus at the Saylor Foundation is global and we welcome students from nearly every country, we’re excited to see our resources put to real-world use right in our own backyard. If you know a Virginia student who might benefit from this program, do let them know, and if you think Saylor.org courses can be of benefit to your institution, we’re just a phone call or email away.
PluggedInVA is a career pathways program that prepares adult learners with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in postsecondary education, training, and high-demand, high-wage careers in the 21st century (visit site).
