    TRAINING FUTURES

    The "Training Futures" program came to Innovation Park in Manassas on June 3, 2013.

    Training Futures is a nationally recognized, workforce development solution with proven results, providing a critical pathway to living-wage jobs for high-potential, underemployed individuals. The Training Futures program has operated successfully for 16 years in Fairfax County. Graduates provide employers a diverse hiring pipeline with the proven ability to adapt to new environments, learn technical skills and work to achieve professional excellence.
    Now serving the Prince William County area, Training futures is currently recruiting program participants and
     will employ the same innovative 6-month curriculum in a simulated office environment as in Fairfax County.The curriculum will teach administrative skills, with a healthcare focus, preparing graduates to succeed in any frontline healthcare or administrative environment. Through an agreement with Northern Virginia Community College (NOVACC), participants will receive 21 hours of college credit and a Career Studies Certificate.  Classes meet Monday thru Friday from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.  Transportation will be provided from one of the local malls. For additional information about Training Futures, click here.  For additional information about the Manassas location, please contact Training Coordinator Suzy Mead at (703)257-6572 
    or email:
