Germanna’s New Canvas System Is Now Accessible

If you are currently working on completing MCS certification classes or need to do so before the end of 2019, Germanna’s new Canvas system is now accessible online. Any unfinished classes previously started in Blackboard have been moved over to Canvas for you to complete.  Any classes not yet started but already registered for should be there as well.  If you haven’t yet registered for a class that you need to take, you can register just as you would have in Blackboard.  For any questions regarding classes or accessing the system and registering for classes, contact Judith Calvert at Germanna at (540)-937-6757.

MCS Mixed Design Class is Coming Soon Online

The VECAT staff has been working diligently to prepare the materials and videos needed to offer the Mix Design class online for anyone who is currently certified but needs to renew their certification.  We are in the final stages of organizing the videos needed to support the class, so be on the lookout for notice that the class has been released into Canvas and is available for registration.  Any questions about this class can be directed to Carter Iseman at VAA (804)288-3169 or Judith Calvert at Germanna (540)-937-6757.  Please keep in mind that the online option is ONLY available to those individuals who are already Mix Design certified.

Proficiency Testing

If you have taken Plant I, II or Mix Design in 2019, please remember that you also have proficiency testing to complete to become fully certified.  This may be done at any time up until NOVEMBER 30th.  Please contact Judith Calvert at Germanna CC at (540) 937-6757 to schedule your testing session. Testing for Plant I will be done virtually, while Testing for Plant II and Mix Design will be held at the FredCAT and VTTI facilities.  Cost for testing is as follows:

Plant I: $175.00
Plant II: $350.00
Mix Design: $650.00

Please remember that registering for proficiency testing is the student’s responsibility. No exceptions will be made.

To register for your proficiency test, you will need to log on to Germanna’s website at and select the proficiency testing that you are required to complete (this process is the same as signing up for a class).  Germanna will then contact you to set a date, time and location for your testing.  For questions about the testing or process for registering, you can contact Judith Calvert at Germanna at or at (540) 937-6757.
