Welcome to Hit the Ground Running Online!

Hit the Ground Running Online is a program developed by the West Virginia State Department of Education, the West Virginia Workplace Education Program, and the Regional Education Service Agency V (RESA V.). The purpose of this online program is to help individuals learn or refresh those skills most requested by employers in the Region 4 Workforce Investment Area.

This program contains many skills which will help you gain employment or help create a better environment at your current place of employment. The skills discussed include Time Management, Teamwork, Problem Solving, Dealing with Difficult Situations, How to Create a Resume, Interviewing Skills, Computer Literacy, as well as many others.  Participants in this program are also tested using the nationally developed WorkKeys Assessment, a test being used by more and more employers for hiring and promotion purposes.  A Ready to Work Certificate, Certificate of Achievement or Certificate of Participation will be earned by all participants who complete the program.

If you'd like to learn more about this program, click on Course Description.  Then, if you'd like to enroll, contact your local Workforce WV Center. The case managers will help you determine if you qualify for the program. There is a link to all Workforce WV Centers in the Region 4 Workforce Investment Area located on the Employment Partners page. You can reach this page using the link at the top of this page.

The online program, Hit the Ground Running, consists of three major components:  Workplace Skills, Computer Skills, and Work Keys.    As you progress through each component, an online instructor will communicate with you via email and assist you with any questions or problems that arise.  You may choose to work on one component at a time until it is completed or work in multiple components at the same time.  For example, you may work on one of the Workplace Skills topics and Computer Skills at the same time.

You should know, however, that online learning is not right for everyone.  It requires a lot of self discipline and strong organizational skills.  If you would like to know if you are well-suited for online learning, click here.  (This file requires that you have Adobe Acrobat Reader software loaded on your computer.
