Martinsville Bulletin: PHCC aims to make workforce training attainable

MARTINSVILLE – People in need of training for jobs they want to pursue should not fear enrolling in a workforce training program at Patrick Henry Community College (PHCC), according to an administrator.

“We try to make it as easy as we can,” said Rhonda Hodges, PHCC’s vice president of workforce, economic and community development.

That includes guiding people through the process of enrolling and seeking financial aid, as well as advising them after they become students, Hodges said.

The first step, she said, is to go to Frith Hall – the building at left in the rear of the campus – between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays and talk with an advisor about the program in which you are interested in enrolling.

No appointment is necessary, although advisors will accept appointments, Hodges said.

Don’t be afraid of going to the wrong location.

“There is no wrong door,” Hodges emphasized. Anyone working on campus is willing to point prospective students to where they need to go, she said.

Advisors will help people fill out required paperwork to enroll in programs and obtain any financial aid to which they are entitled, she added.
