NOVA’s Workforce Development Division is pleased to announce a training collaboration with the Fairfax County Department of Family Services *(VIEW program).  This collaboration has given us the opportunity to offer an Administrative Assistant Training Program at their new Fairfax Job Center in the Fairfax County Department of Family Services.  The new Fairfax Job Center opened its doors during the first week of September, and we are honored to support their initiatives and look forward to serving the needs of their clients through ongoing customized training.

The first training class was presented Certificates of Completion by their instructor, Yvonne Morton, Adjunct Professor at Northern Virginia Community College on Friday, October 11.  Ms. Morton opened her comments to the ten students with the following group rally: “IT ONLY GETS…(cheered in sync) BETTER!” This group rally is indicative of the collaboration that was established between NOVA and the VIEW program.  We look forward to a long-term contract training collaboration with this vital community program.
