For the Commonwealth of Virginia to continue leading the charge as one of the nation’s top states for business, Virginians must obtain and strengthen the skills required to drive innovation and job creation across the Commonwealth’s communities. Virginia’s community colleges play an important role in equipping individuals with job skills, and Germanna Community College is leading by example.

SkillUpVA is a program launched by Germanna's Workforce & Community Education department, which is designed to empower individuals with the skills required to obtain, improve and sustain career opportunities in an economic environment marked by rapid technological change and increased global competition.

The SkillUpVA program incorporates a host of valuable boot camps, workshops, classes and events – all focused on skills education.
