VECAT Online Classes On Hold From Now Until July 1st

Germanna’s transformation from the current Blackboard system to their new Canvas system is now underway.  As a result, the following are now in effect.

  1. For New registrations: If you need to register between now and July 1st, you can register for the class now, but cannot begin taking the class until July 1st.
  2. If You registered by Midnight on April 30th: You can continue taking the online class as long as you finish by June 1st.
  3. Login information (username and password): Canvas login information will be the same as your Blackboard login (for students that already have login credentials for Blackboard).
  4. Reminder: The six classes available in VECAT are part of the FastForward (WCG) program; however, eligible students can only enroll in a particular WCG class one time.  For example, if a person has already taken Field Level I using WCG and enrolls in Field Level I again, they must register in the non-WCG Field Level I class the next time.

We apologize for any inconvenience this program upgrade may cause you.  If you have questions regarding classes for which you are already registered or classes that still need to be taken, please contact Judith Calvert at Germanna:

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.
