On Ramp: Assistance for Displaced Workers

The goal of NRCC’s On Ramp program is to increase employment opportunities for dislocated workers through post-secondary credentials for in-demand careers. These non-credit training programs are shorter in length than NRCC’s credit programs and have flexible start times.

The On Ramp program serves all of Region 4 – the counties of Giles, Floyd, Montgomery and Pulaski and the city of Radford.

The program is housed in NRCC’s Office of Transitional Programs and partners with New River Community College, the Western Region’s Rapid Response Coordinator, the New River-Mt. Rogers Workforce Development Board and the Virginia Employment Commission, along with other community-based local organizations.

Upon eligibility, On Ramp participants will be assessed and enrolled in non-credit, post-secondary training courses resulting in the opportunity to test for industry-recognized credentials. The On Ramp Coordinator assists students with job placement needs, including resume building and interview skills. The training also includes professional soft skills and workplace ethics.
