Hit the Ground Running

Hit the Ground Running is a program developed by the West Virginia State Department of Education, the West Virginia Workplace Education Program, and the Regional Education Service Agency V (RESA V.). The purpose of this program is to help individuals learn or refresh those skills most requested by employers in the Region 4 Workforce Investment Area.

This program contains many skills which can help students gain employment or help create a better environment at their current place of employment. The skills discussed include Time Management, Teamwork, Problem Solving, Dealing with Difficult Situations, How to Create a Resume, Interviewing Skills, Computer Literacy, as well as many others. Participants in this program are also tested using the nationally developed WorkKeys Assessment, a test being used by more and more employers for hiring and promotion purposes. A Ready to Work Certificate or Certificate of Attendance is earned by all participants who complete the program.

Hit the Ground Running is a 120-hour course, designed to be conducted 30 hours/week for 4 weeks.  In addition, an online version was developed to assist students unable to attend the regularly scheduled classes.
