Workforce Students

NOVA’s Workforce Development offers in-person, online and customized training to fit your needs.

You now have several ways to register for Workforce Development courses.

Apply for Admission

If you have never taken a credit or non-credit class at NOVA or any other Virginia Community College, you must complete the application for admission and get a Student ID number, also called an EMPL ID number. If you prefer, you may also fill out the application online.

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and remains open until the class maximum is met. If a class is filled, contact your campus Workforce Office for assistance. Students are not allowed to audit or sit in classes for which they have not paid.

Questions About Classes

If you have questions about Workforce Development classes, please contact your campus office before you register.

How to Register

Registration for Workforce Development courses is continuous throughout the semester and remains open until the course maximum is reached. If the course you want is full, contact the Workforce Development office at that campus and ask to be placed on a waiting list.

Get the course you want – register and pay for it early!

Pay for Your Courses

Payment for Workforce Development courses is due at the time of registration. Payment must be made using your credit card (MasterCard or Visa) on the Web or by paying with check or cash at the campus Business Office during their regular hours of operation.
