Governor McAuliffe Announces Expansion of Cybersecurity Apprenticeships
June 24, 2016

“Having competency-based registered apprenticeships provides Virginia with yet another tool to leverage as we work to strengthen our pipeline of high-quality, industry-ready cybersecurity professionals,” said Secretary of Technology Karen Jackson. "Introducing registered apprenticeship occupations in an industry sector like cybersecurity that has not traditionally employed apprentices will boost the ability of young adults and career switchers to attain in-demand skills and even earn industry certifications and college credits while simultaneously working full time and earning wages.

Governor McAuliffe’s commitment to increasing registered apprenticeships in IT and cyber security led to a recent launch of a VDOLI administered program that provides fiscal incentives of up to $1,000 a year for related instruction costs. Companies hiring IT or cybersecurity apprentices are eligible for the incentive.”  Read Full article

Unmanned Systems

New Award to Virginia Space Grant Consortium Supports Community College Partnerships to Develop the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Workforce in Virginia

The Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) is leading a statewide partnership to develop the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Workforce in Virginia by creating career pathways at Virginia’s community colleges.

VSGC, Virginia Community College System (VCCS), Thomas Nelson Community College (Thomas Nelson), Mountain Empire Community College (Mountain Empire), and Virginia Tech are partnering on the Geospatial Technician Education-Unmanned Aircraft Systems (GeoTEd-UAS) project. GeoTEd-UAS will prepare students for success as UAS operations technicians who will plan and fly UAS missions and analyze geospatial data to solve problems and answer questions.

Explosive growth and innovation in UAS technology and integration will create new UAS jobs and a demand for a trained workforce in this emerging sector. Virginia’s Community Colleges working with the VSGC and other partners are well-positioned to prepare the future UAS workforce thanks to a new award of $899,847 from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Advanced Technological Education (NSF-ATE) program. Continue Reading VSGC UAS News Release 

Governor McAuliffe Signs Senate Bill 286; viewing of visual displays while vehicle is being operated autonomously

June 9, 2016 Governor McAuliffe signed SB 286 that allows for the viewing of a visual display while the vehicle is being operated autonomously. Current law only allows equipment with a visual display of a television broadcast or signal if the equipment's interlock disables when the motor vehicle is driven. This pro-legislation will further promote Virginia's stance on unmanned systems and continue to build an innovative and technologically advanced economy.
