Thank You! 
"Great Place to Celebrate Our 33rd Wedding Anniversary. Really liked the way everything was conducted by the track and all the different locations for spectacular viewing of the race. The pit's being available to meet and talk with the rider's and owner's, and the extra attractions that Virginia International Speedway had set up for us to see. We are attempting to make the journey back as soon we can, it is so Enjoyable to be there."

Over the course of two years, the apprentices worked 1,500 hours per year for GCAPS, a global leader in the transportation industry, and gained experience in using state-of-the-art code writing and programing tools for vehicle and tire modeling and simulation. They received nine credits of paid tuition for relevant course work and a certificate of completion at the end of the program.

“As the transportation industry continues to grow and evolve, we need skilled, technology-savvy professionals now more than ever to help solve the latest challenges in vehicle and tire testing modeling and simulation. The apprenticeship program helped me greatly in building a workforce at GCAPS to help meet these needs. I am very proud of the graduates and all they have accomplished,” said Frank Della Pia, the director of GCAPS.

In May 2018, GCAPS launched the paid apprenticeship in partnership with Danville Community College. Southern Virginia Higher Education Center (SVHEC) assisted with recruitment and several SVHEC IT Academy completers were hired as apprentices.
