The SVHEC recently completed 10 weeks of customized training for 16 students at the Rivermont School in Chase City and Danville, VA.

The Rivermont School reached out to the SVHEC because they needed a training provider who could offer career pathways exploration, and work within their limited timeframe. The SVHEC’s customized training team worked closely with the Rivermont staff to customize the “Work Ready Career Pathways” curriculum to meet their needs.
