Training & Workforce

Our Commitment to Workforce

By training students of all ages to enter high-demand fields, Brightpoint is a major contributor to our local economy.

  • In fiscal year 2017-18, Brightpoint contributed more than $300 million in income to the community.
  • More than 95 percent of Brightpoint’s students remain in Virginia after they complete their education, with about 80 percent staying in the college's service region after attending.
  • For every $1.00 invested in Brightpoint Community College in 2017-18, state and local taxpayers will receive a cumulative value of $8.70 and students will gain $6.40 in added income.

Training for High-Demand Career Fields

Through Brightpoint and, our workforce development division, Community College Workforce Alliance, our many career training programs allow students to enter the workforce in two years or less with the skills that employers need.
