Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) had the ribbon cutting for their new workforce development center in Woodbridge yesterday.
According to a Prince William Economic Development Department release, the Regional Center for Workforce Education and Training (RCWET) is a 55,000 square foot facility that cost $29 million to build.
RCWET was built to handle the training needs for area workers that need skills to meet today’s highly technical job market.
“…the facility promises to be Northern Virginia’s leading workforce training epicenter, delivering a highly-trained workforce with technical skills for jobs of today and the future to meet the growing technological demands of cyber security, government, healthcare, information technology and program management,” stated a release.
At the ribbon cutting, elected officials from the Prince William County Board of Supervisors and NOVA expressed their excitement about the center.
“The opening of the Regional Workforce Training Center today is a testament to Prince William County’s commitment to be ‘pro-business’ – to work hand-in-hand with our local business community to ensure that their needs are addressed and to attract innovative companies that require employees with highly-trained, competitive skills,” stated Chairman Corey Stewart in a release.
“Education is the building block of our future and workforce development is critical to our businesses and citizens. Advancing labor skills that are in high-demand will bring our citizens further employability and economic security for themselves and their families,” stated Supervisor John Jenkins in a release.
